Open the DNS console on the server


right-click the the forward lookup zone you want to add the srv record in and choose Other New Records.


In the Resource Record Type dialog box, choose Service Location, and click Create Record.


Enter the following details:
Service: _autodiscover
Protocol: _tcp
Port Number: 443
