auto-discovering datasnyc-server via dns?

hi!

there were some rumours that if setting a dns c-name "autodiscover" which points to the datasyncserver, - it would be possible to find automatically the datasync server when installing the mail for exchange client?!

tried that, didn't work...

what else would be necessary in a classic novell environment, - that means no ads, bind as dns,...??

tnx! gerald

Hi,

Perhaps a Resource Record entry in DNS will fix your problem.

Good luck
John

Re: auto-discovering datasnyc-server via dns?

john, what do you mean? which kind of ressource record?? as mentioned we have a c-name-record ("alias") alraedy set!

does it have to be an a-record rather than a c-name??

does the server-autodiscover-feature from within a mail-for-exchange-client work with your datasync-server?

tnx! gerald

No, it only works with Exchange as it does some additional things.
This doesn't work with Mobility.

Ok, so a project to be completed. Too bad it doesn't just give out an URL for the sync server. Would have been nice.
