How to Create Autodiscover in Exchange

This document assumes you have already setup the SSL and have OWA working on your server. If you dont then you will need to apply a certificate to your Exchange OWA website in IIS.

To do this we simply opened IIS and looked for the OWA directory which was located under the Default Web Site.

Then we checked the properties of the Default Web Site.

Then go to the Security Directory and create the server certificate and then apply the certifcate to this site once received from an SSL authority.

Setting Up your Autodiscover Website

Setting Up DNS

Step 1
create a domain under your domain in DNS with the name of _tcp (this will be a folder under your domain in DNS)

ex: _tcp.yourdomainname.com

Step 2
Create a SRV record with (to get to SRV you will need to choose Others from the drop down)

Service: _autodiscover. (You may need to type this in if its not in your drop down.)
Protocol: _tcp
Priority: 0
Weight: 0
Port Number: 443
Host offering this service: exchange.prestigetechnologies.com. (This will be the link to your OWA without the /OWA)

Any questions feel free to open a ticket and we can walk you through it. You dont need to be a Prestige Technologies customer to open tickets.
