    Issues with Autodiscovery with Exchange 2010

    Hi,


    I have a big company which consists of 3 different entities. One entity was sold. Currently they still use our ActiveDirectory / Domain Services. They moved to office 365 and are not using our Exchange server anymore. They had a problem that the autodiscovery was pointing the mail settings to our exchange server. I removed there domain from accepted domains and also disabled there mailboxes. They were working fine. After a month they experienced the same problem. What could be the problem?


    I was suspecting that since they use our Domain controller we have a CNAME of autodiscover which points to our Exchange Server this is causing the problem.


    How can this be solved? Is there a way which it can be solved from the Server side?






    Thanks & Regards,
    Joe

    As a separate entity do they have their own sub-domain? If so it's a simple DNS change.
    If they are on their own subnet you could give them a local DNS server that only has AD server entries.
    You could add a HOSTS entry on their PCs that points the autodiscovery at Office 365. This will take precedence over your DNS.

    cheers, Paul
