TXT record not supported - Federation Office 365


  • I am trying to setup a federation for a hybrid Office 365 deployment and I am required to create a txt record for proof however, my dns server does not support txt records.  How can I move forward?

  • Hi Jeniffer, have you tried calling your DNS Server provider to see if they can manually créate them? sometimes this option is not available through control panels but can be done manually if you call them.

  • Hi Alberto,

         Thanks for the response.  I am my DNS provider :)  I use Netscalers on version 9.3 (TXT records not supported) to host my DNS.  I called Office 365 support and there is currently not an alternative to TXT records for domain verification on Federation like there is for adding Office 365 domains.  My only option is to upgrade all of my Netscalers to version 10 (TXT records supported).

  • Hi Jennifer, i see now what the problem is, but unfortunately you have no other choice than upgrading your DNS server (it´s always a good idea to keep up to date DNS servers ;-) ).
