  • Autodiscovery record in the internal dns zone ?

    Hello,

    I am watching this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5FoLv5c0AA ) and the person says in the minute 3:20 to 3:30, that an autodiscovery internal dns record is needed.

    I thought that the internal clients would automatically have the autodiscovery feature because Exchange installs it automatically in the IIS server and in Active Directory.

    I thought as well that a public dns record like (autodiscovery.mydomain.com) was necessary, for any clients outside the lan, that is, in the WAN.

    Thanks in advance!

    He's doing that because he's using the DNS server in the video to host his external public DNS zone for the purposes of illustration. He also has an MX record and an A record for his website, none of which would be needed in your internal private DNS zone.

    So the answer is: You do not need an autodiscover (or MX) record in your internal DNS zone.

        The only time you need an internal DNS record for Autodiscover is when you have clients on your internal network, using the internal DNS server which are NOT members of the domain. Then they work just like external clients and do a DNS lookup for Autodiscover.
