Information DNS SRV records for Office 365
There are two SRV records that we need to check in DNS:
It can take time before it actually will resolve. Don’t do a check immediately after you added the SRV record to your external DNS. It will most likely not yet got resolved.
Verify DNS SRV records from Windows
Let’s verify the SRV records for Office 365. In this example, we are going to verify the SRV records against the domain klm.com. Change the domain to yours. Start Command Prompt on your Windows machine.
C:\>nslookup > set type=any > set verbose > _sipfederationtls._tcp.klm.com Non-authoritative answer: _sipfederationtls._tcp.klm.com SRV service location: priority = 100 weight = 1 port = 5061 svr hostname = sipfed.online.lync.com > _sip._tls.klm.com Non-authoritative answer: _sip._tls.klm.com SRV service location: priority = 100 weight = 1 port = 443 svr hostname = sipdir.online.lync.com
The results are good. Both of the SRV records are added to DNS, and we can verify it. Now that we did an SRV lookup with Windows, we like to do that with a DNS lookup website.
Verify DNS SRV records from a website
Open your browser and go to the website mxtoolbox.com. Make sure that it’s showing DNS Lookup SRV at the top. Fill in the domain name _sipfederationtls._tcp.klm.com and click on the SRV Lookup button. Change klm.com to your domain.
The results will show that the SRV is added to DNS.
Do the same with _sip._tls. Fill in _sip._tls.klm.com and do an SRV Lookup.
Will you check the SRV records with Windows or with the website mxtoolbox.com? Both will work.
