Exchange domain lookup issue

Posted on 18. Sep, 2014 by Pete

I have a Microsoft Exchange 2013 Server that I'm testing as a type of shared mail platform. Everything is working fine in terms of the mail delivery/receipt. I'm having an issue whereby when I'm setting up an exchange email account in outlook, I pop in the server IP (lets say its Outlook has a think for a minute or so then changes the IP to a non-existant domain name 'exchange.myserver.local'. This obviously causes issues with the mail client connecting to the remote exchange server. I guess this 'exchange.myserver.local' bit was set up on the exchange server by one of my colleagues and I was hoping there might be a way to change it from the shell without having to go back and restart the exchange installation. Thank you in advance for your help :)

Are you sure you have the correct DNS entries on your PDC?.

I have had this issue with a couple of customers. Please see my Video tutorial: MS Exchange 2010

@erwin: you can always install it on a stand alone server, no need for a domain controller.
