Exchange 2013 ActiveSync

Hello we have an Exchange 2013 configured and everything is working fine except that when we test ActiveSyn on the site

https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/

When i enter my email address username@ville.xxx.qc.ca

The test try to connect to https://ville.xxx.qc.ca:443/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml and failed

It should connect to https://owa.ville.xxx.qc.ca:443/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml .com/

How can we change this so it connect automaticly to https://owa.ville.xxx.qc.ca:443/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml 

If i enter my server manually everything is ok

Thanks !

The autodiscover process will attempt to use a number of URLS by default.
The first one is the root of the domain - so if your domain is example.com then it will try and use https://example.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml

If that URL works then you need to speak to your web host to get it disabled, as it is something they have configured (it is used by one of the major control panel vendors). Once that is done, as long as you have the correct DNS records for Autodiscover, it should work correctly.

The best option is to add a SRV record in the DNS for the domain and it work perfect .
Hope that helps

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Can you explain more ?

Thanks !

Sorry, i meant in the Domain DNS where your domain is hosted.
SRV records will be like

_autodiscover._tcp   14400 IN SRV  0 100 443  owa.ville.xxx.qc.ca

this will redirect all the auto discover requests to owa.ville.xxx.qc.ca

SRV record has the priority and is a recommend way so i guess if you can add a SRV record that would be best.

You can only use Autodiscover.example.com IF the host name is in your SSL certificate. If it is not, then you cannot use that method and need to go with SRV records.

remember the best of using Srv record id that you can purchase a single name certificate which is the best of the solutions
I have all my clients working with a single name: owa.client.com

Good luck
