Verifying the domain
Now that we have created the TXT record, Office 365 will be able to verify that you have
the authority to add the domain to your tenant. There is no need to wait for DNS
convergence because Office 365 does not cache its DNS lookup of TXT records for domain
verification purposes, so you can immediately start the verification process.
If you are still on the Office 365 page waiting for domain verification (see Figure 3-6) and if
it has not yet timed out, you can click the done, verify now button. If you have to log on to
the admin center again, follow these steps to confirm ownership:
1. From the admin center, click domains in the left pane, and then click the Setup in
progress link in the Status column, as shown in Figure 3-10.
