Testing SRV DNS record

To verify if you’ve added the proper DNS SRV record in our system you can run the following commands in a MS-DOS prompt from your Windows based system.

nslookup -q=srv _autodiscover._tcp.yourdomain.ca

You should see the following output when a successful query is made:

C:\Users\c.c-PC>nslookup -q=srv _autodiscover._tcp.yourdomain.ca
Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
_autodiscover._tcp.yourcomain.ca SRV service location:
priority = 0
weight = 0
port = 443
svr hostname = autodiscover.canadawidehostingservices.ca

If it fails, you will receive some error like:

*** google-public-dns-a.google.com can’t find _autodiscover._tcp.hostingcademdsff.com: Non-existent domain
