We needed to test a domain's autodiscover setup that we had them configure since we are not confident in the hoster's abilities anymore.
- Open an elevated command prompt.
- NSLookup [Enter]
- set type=srv [Enter]
- _autodiscover._tcp.mpecsinc.ca [Enter]
And, the test for the hosting provider shows that they did indeed make a mess of it. Back to the drawing board. :(
The How-To for formatting the Autodiscover SRV record is in the TechNet article below. That method works for our own SBS 2011 Standard integrated Exchange and our client's setups as well.
We now use this SRV record for all of our client's Internet DNS setup.
