I was asked today about the steps to configure autodiscover site scope and I was surprised to find out that I hadn’t written about it before. I was thinking of giving a link to the article, but I have to write it first. So, here it goes.
Configuring site scope for autodiscover comes in only if you have multiple sites with clients connecting, say a company which spreads across the country or a global company with branches in many countries. Whatever the scenario is, the intention is to get Outlook 2007+ clients to pick up a local or closest CAS server as the SCP endpoint.
