Create a DNS Entry for Exchange Autodiscover

Exchange

This is a small post how you can create the DNS records for Exchange Autodiscover in the Genotec Hosting Control Panel.

  1. First login to the HCC (Hosting Control Center).
  2. Navigate to Domainnames and choose your domain
  3. (OPTIONAL) If you not already have, create a new A record for your mailserver (for example mail.the-it-crowd.ch)
    A Record
  4. (OPTIONAL) If you not already create a MX record for your domain, create a MX record
    MX record
  5. Create a CNAME for your autodiscover domain. Normally this is pointing to your mailserver. You could also use the allready exisiting mail.the-it-crowd.ch A record. But I would recommend you to create this CNAME.
    CNAME
  6. Create the Autodiscover SRV record
    TYP: SRV HOST: _autodiscover._tcp.the-it-crowd.ch. DATA:
    0 0 443 autodiscover.the-it-crowd.ch.
    SRV
