GooD Day Experts,

I am trying to add a certificate (just created it by installing Certificate services) to Exchange 2000 on SBS 2000 and OWA becomes incaccessible when I do this.  If i switch back to the old certificate then OWA works fine.  What am I doing wrong?

Many Thanks,

Ellsworth

Not an expert on this, but sounds like it could be a few problems from the sounds of it.

did you create and sign the ssl cert yourself?  If so did you give it the correct fqdn?

If you say there was a ssl cert already in place then why did you add another one?

regards,

Thanks for the Reply Kshays,

I assigned a new one because the name of the cert didn't match the name of the site.  Yes i did create and sign the ssl cert myself.

Thanks,

I've had some problems signing the cert myself also.  If all you are going to do is use ssl for owa then you could probably get by creating your own, but I find that rapidSSL or thawte isn't that expensive and much better imho.

Are you able to successfully issue the cert to the website?  If so you may want to double check that you are requiring a secure connection on the web site and it didn't uncheck it when you removed the old ssl cert.  If those are correct it sounds like there was a problem when you were setting up the ssl cert somehow.

Kshays,

I am able to right click the on the website through IIS and go through the steps of assigning the certificate to the website.  And then I can view the certificate afterwards too.  Just when I go to our OWA url, I have a return of:  page cannot be found.  Though I just checked the default website properties in IIS(which currently has the old Cert with the wrong name), the box for require a secure connection wasn't checked and OWA works fine right now.

Thanks,

Ellsworth
