When setting up the Office 365 account, domain verification seems to be a pain point for a lot of people. Most people search the internet to verify if the records are replicated.
You can use NSLookup and public DNS servers to do the same job.
Open a command prompt and type NSLookup
Type in the command set type=all
This will allow NSlookup to list all the records in the zone
Type in the command server ‘public DNS IP’. Where ‘public DNS IP’ is; populate with the actual IP address. See the table below
- Type in the record that you are looking for and NSlookup will query that DNS server.
