"You" don't do anything I shouldn't think. You don't do anything to the DNS your Active Directory uses as Exchange doesn't use/need MX records internally.
You probably don't do anything to your external facing domain either. I would suspect you have your ISP set up the A record, MX record and PTR record to the IP address of the A record.

Short of that I'm not actually sure what you asked.

hi,

Few things need to check...
I guess you  have user with email address stamped (Exchange 2007 new feature)
Network connectivity from outlook to DC\GC and exchange 2007
Run exbpa tool from toolbox to check out.
Try to access owa from the client computer.

Check the application log of exchange server as well

Is the client machine even resolving the mail server via DNS? 




mousuminaskar -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 11:03:12 AM)

From client computer my outlook is unable to connect to the exch svr n unable to access via OWA also.wat to do?




t0ta11ed -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 11:05:15 AM)

I wasn't asking if your client was able to access Exchange. I asked if your machine is resolving the mail server via DNS. Open a command prompt and type nslookup ssiexchsrvr If this fails, then DNS resolution is not working.




mousuminaskar -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 11:18:24 AM)

Yes,i am getting response properly.
i v given below.

C:\Documents and Settings\Developer>nslookup ssiexchsrvr
Server:  ssiadc.sivasystems.com
Address:  192.168.xx.xxx
Name:    ssiexchsrvr.sivasystems.com
Address:  192.168.xx.xxx

You should only be connecting to OWA via HTTPS. Check the internal URL of OWA in the EMC.

Unless you need IMAP and POP access, you should turn these off.

Make sure Outlook is not using Offline mode.




mousuminaskar -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 11:30:58 AM)

plz tell me,shud i stop these 2 services?(imap4 n pop3?)
n How to check internal URL?wat it shud be?
n how i ll do sure that  Outlook is not using Offline mode ?
plz let me knw.

If you don't require POP or IMAP, then yes, turn them off.

The internal URL can be whatever you want it to be. This is configurable in the Exchange console under Server Configuration>Client Access

Outlook will say it's offline in the lower right hand corner.




mousuminaskar -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 12:01:27 PM)

i have stopped 2 services,imap4 n pop3.
next, regarding internal URL,
WAT i did,i went to servr configuration->client access->outlookweb access
under this,5 objects shown..so i go to OWA(default website)->prpperties->i checked an internal URL is https://ssiexchsrvr.sivasystems.com/owa

n third one,i checked outlook,its showing working online.
n tell me also,suppose in one of client computer its showing offline,so how to do it online?
wat to do?still its nt accessible.

This would be the URL you use to access OWA. It can be changed to whatever you want, but should match your certificate name.

You would just click there and choose to have it work Online.

What isn't accessable?




mousuminaskar -> RE: how to setup DNS for exchange server 2007? (10.Mar.2008 12:18:29 PM)

"You would just click there and choose to have it work Online. "

4m whr i ll get that option so that i can do online?i didnt get that.

n "This would be the URL you use to access OWA. It can be changed to whatever you want, but should match your certificate name"

in this case,my certificate name is "ssiexchsrvr"

n i told u that i am unable to access OWA 4m client computer and I unable to configure my outlook also.becoz,wen i was trying to connect my outlook to exch srvr,it gives error.
