Where and how to configure Exchange Server (FQDN) name? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please bear with me as I am still learning..

    What I am trying to do is to get Exchange 2007 set up and working with Outlook 2007.  I want to just make a small environment where users in the intranet are able to email back and forth.  I've successfully managed to install Exchange 2007 and a client access server, a hub transport server, and a mailbox server with the help of the TechNet library.  I've installed Outlook 2007 and am trying to set up a new e-mail account, but I am stuck on the Microsoft Exchange Settings: Microsoft Exchange server name.  Where can I find out where my Exchange server name is?  or.. What do I need to do on the Exchange Server to configure a server FQDN name?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Hi,

    The exchange server name = the server name.

    the fqdn of the server = servername appended by the dns name of your AD

  • Hi Leif,  

    Are you saying that it is the same name as the computer name of the Window Server 2008?  For example, if I go to start, and then right click on Computer, it shows the full computer name.  Is this what is needed for the Microsoft Exchange server name?

    I always thought that it usually defaulted to something like mail.domain.com or dc.domain.com.

    Thanks again.
