Change autodiscover Exchange 2007 for hybrid migration to office 365

Hello!!

We are trying to  migrate our internal Exchage 2007 server to Office 365. We are implementing hybrid migraton so different profile connections are running into AD network (some users are using internal Exchange mailboxes and some others using Office 365 mailboxes).

.- Internal domain: domain.com
-. Office 365 domain: domain.com

Internal and external domain are the same so problem is setting up profile client connections to Office 365 server. Autodiscover always finds internal Exchange Server and the only way that works is changing DNS ip's to the clients computers (change internal DNS to External one) while setting up new profile in Outlook 2013.

How we could change autodiscover setup to solve this problem?

Thanks!!!!!

From what i see is that you will have to deploy a Exchange 2013 CAS on prem to be able to properly configure hybrid with o365, i have never done this but recommending this just based on my reading.

Hi Satyendra:

We know how to implement Hybrid migration on Exchange Server 2007. Maybe I didn't explain clear enough.

Basically, we need to change Autodiscover configuration in Exchange 2007. Autodiscover routes Internal Outlook clients connects to internal Exchange server but we need Autodiscover route to external Office 365 server.

Internal domain name (Exchange 2007) and external domain name (Office 365) is the same domain name and we want setup Autodiscover to be routed only to external domain (office 365).

Thanks for your answer!!!!!

Oh i see... If this is the case and all autodiscover only needs to go to external then you can just update the current host A record to resolve to the o365 service IP address.

You can use the registry keys mentioned in this article to 'instruct' Outlook to bypass the local AutoDiscover lookups. O365 only needs the HTTP redirect method, so you can block all others on the PCs in question.

Hello Vasil:

I've tried to bypass the local Autodiscover Lookups but when trying to create new mail profile automatically create connection to internal exchange 2007 server.

I'm using Outlook 2013.

Thanks.

You've missed some endpoint. Run the Autodiscover test locally: hold the CTRL key, right-click on Outlook's icon in the tray, select Test Email Autoconfiguration, enter credentials, clear the two GuessSmart checkboxes and run the test. Post the sanitized result here.
