checking autodiscover SRV records using nslookup

There are a couple ways to add autodiscover - which is required by Exchange 2007 (and presumably Exchange 2010) for full functionality (more coming on this concept).

In a DOS prompt, type "nslookup"
Then "set type=srv"
Then the record you want - such as "_autodiscover._tcp.exampledomain.com"

Here's what a properly configured autodiscover looks like:

NSlookup is simply part of Windows, so you can get access to it from the the command line.
