dns records for autodiscover

What dns records do I need to configure on godaddy and in my servers dns for autodiscover to work from inside and outside the network to x.mydomain.com. I do not want the internal autodiscover to resolve to x.mydomain.local since there is no cert for the .local.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depending on which version of Exchange you have, here are guides with screenshots for both 2010 and 2013.

They go over the DNS records needed, certificates needed and how to configure all the internal URLs in Exchange.

For external DNS you just need an A record called autodiscover.yourdomain.com pointing to the Public IP of your CAS server.

Have you configured any kind of IIS redirects?

What happens if you plug this directly into your web browser?

Ok. So that indicates that autodiscover is working fine. I'd have to see the entire Remote Connectivity Analyzer report to figure out what is happening.

Can you test this with an account other than the domain administrator? Just a regular user. The domain administrator is a protected account and will sometimes run into errors with these tests.

Alternatively, log into Active Directory Users and Computer. Go into the Properties of the Administrator Account. Select the Security tab. Click Advanced button. Make sure the check box for Allow Inheritable Permissions is checked. Click Ok.

Retest.

If that was already checked. Let me know.
