Hello

Nearly 3 years ago I setup a simple SBS 2011 Standard Server for a company who use Exchange as well. Very uncomplicated. At the time, Outlook 2010 and 2013 were the prevailing email clients which meant Exchange initial client configuration was EASY.

Lately however I have noticed because of Outlook 2016, my failure to originally set up an autodiscover file has come back to haunt me. I am therefore attempting to resolve it.

 

I am following these instructions at the moment:

http://www.thirdtier.net/setting-up-autodiscover-for-sbs-2011/

 

There is a point where it says "Build the SRV record", I assume in the Public DNS zone. If I submit the following picture to explain, am I pointing to the public zone?

See attached or https://i.imgur.com/FeObkbj.png

 

Also, please refer to the SRV record generation dialog to the right which I'm not sure about.

Thank you!

Richard

You would only need a public SRV record if Exchange needs to be accessible from outside the company network. If the clients aren't on laptops that users travel with, an SRV record on your internal DNS is sufficient.

Thank you, would that be the

company.local

DNS zone?

Also do I type in _autodiscover manually, since it is not in the SRV creation dropdown (per picture)?

You would use whatever your AD domain is named. Not sure why it's not an option, but yes, create it manually.
