Faster method to check Exchange autodiscovery

1. Check host (A) record for your domain that points to the server hosting autodiscovery.

Run nslookup autodiscover.mydomain.com
Server: name.mydomain.com
Address: X.X.X.X
Name: autodiscover.mydoamin.com
Address: X.X.X.X

2. Access your autodiscovery service using a web browser.

The URL you should use is :

http://autodiscover.<your domain>/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

You should receive some XML with an error in it, as shown below, and that’s correct. If you don’t get XML, you need to troubleshoot your discovery service in Exchange.
