srv record for office 365
 
I'm using mydns as part of my ISPconfig cluster. One of our clients wants to implement Office365. To configure lync server one has to add SRV records. At this point I am not clear on how to add them.

Microsoft gives the following information:
Type: SRV
Service: _sip
Protocol: _tls
Port: 443
Weight: 1
Priority: 100
TTL: 1 hour
name: example.com
target: sipdir.online.lync.com

I have only 4 fields in ISPconfig:
- Hostname:
- Server record:
- Priority:
- TTL:

I have no clue as to what has to go where (well Priority and TTL are simple but Hostname and Server record are a mystery to me).

Has someone figured it out and is willing to enlighten me :)

From mydns manual:

"The `data' column must contain three space-separated values. The first value is a number specifying the weight for this entry. The second field is a number specifying the port on the target host of this service. The last field is a name specifying the target host."

The data column is the server record.

ISPconfig 3 and Office 365 DNS settings
 
I too have the same query on setting up office 365 DNS requirements using ISPconfig 3

From what I gather from Hans and Tills reply

Microsoft gives the following information:
Type: SRV
Service: _sip
Protocol: _tls
Port: 443
Weight: 1
Priority: 100
TTL: 1 hour
name: example.com
target: sipdir.online.lync.com

For me I have only 4 fields in ISPconfig when I create a SRV record:
- Hostname:
- Server record:
- TTL:
- Active: check marked


I plan to enter the following but I am not sure what I am doing:

Hostname: example.com
Server Record: 1 443 sipdir.online.lync.com
TTL: 3600
Active: Check Marked

Although Till has referred us to the manual, I am confused as to what to do with
the other defined entries microsoft requires. Namely:

Service: _sip
Protocol: _tls
Priority: 100

Can someone who has actually done an office 365 DNS setup or an dns guru help a noob like
me (I need really dumb step by step just put this in here suggestions).

Sorry to revive an old post. Microsoft guides notes cant help me as they often refer back
to the "Administrator" of the DNS service provider to create a custom SRV record (in instances
when the web-based ISPconfig GUI is unable to create the above microsoft DNS entry requirements). The problem
here is I am the Administrator and I dont know what to do. Please help.

ISPconfig 3 and Office 365 DNS settings
 
in SRV records hostname is defined as:

<service>.<protocol>.<domain>

in your example, you have just to set:

Hostname: _sip._tls.example.com
Server Record: 1 443 sipdir.online.lync.com
Priority: 100
TTL: 3600
Active: Check Marked

but be careful if you run ISPConfig 3.0.5.2, the checkbox Active does not appear and record become inactive if you save it.

I also has this problem that it's inactive.

Please tell me - why does it get inactive - and what to do about it?

Edit: I see it in the bugtracker:
