A quick post to let followers of my Remote UC Troubleshooting Tool (RUCT) for Lync and OCS know that the DNS records used by the Lync mobility clients to auto-discover the Lync mobility service have been added.
Specifically you now have the option of querying the locally configured DNS server for the following records:
- Lyncdiscover.<domain.com> (both CNAME or A record)
- Lyncdiscoverinternal.<domain.com> (both CNAME or A record)
From the same screen you can ping the resulting hostname or test the port availability on any of the Lync DNS record matches.
Here is a sample screen shot with the Lync Auto-Discovery Mobility DNS record:
