Exchange Online, Autodiscover CNAME resolving to wrong server

I've created all the Office 365 records, and when you check autodiscover.genesisuk.org it resolves correctly.

However when I run an autodiscover test using testconnectivity.microsoft.com, the record ends up resolving to delino.servers.eqx.misp.co.uk, rather than the autodiscover CNAME record I've set up. I'm unclear how to resolve this.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Do you have the External DNS correctly configured?

I assume when you say you've created all the record you've done it both internally and externally?

Hi Guy

Yep - DNS all reports fine .. if you ping autodiscover.genesisuk.org it resolves correctly.  This is using Exchange Online so not sure what you mean by Internal/External.  Our clients resolve DNS queries against OpenDNS servers.

Yeah, from what I can see it all looks fine...

Odd one for sure. Have you contacted OpenDNS about it?

Not specifically ... when running the Microsoft Connectivity test (testconnectivity.microsoft.com), it seems to be picking up the SSL certificate for the website and resolving to that instead - does that help?

Are you saying that your certificate for exchange has the SN of delino.servers.eqx.misp.co.uk?

To the best of my knowledge we have an SSL for the website only which resolves to the address shown above.  We dont have an SSL for email, as it's hosted by Microsoft, (Exchange Online), so dont need one.

Autodiscover has several endpoints, both ExRCA and Outlook will first do a lookup on the HTTPS endpoints. The process is explained here in details: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2212902

If all your mailboxes are located in O365, the only thing you need is the "HTTP redirect" endpoint.
