I am in the configuration stages of setting up rpc-http on my exchange 2003 server and am a bit confused about the SSL certificate. In the Proceedure to configure RPC virtual Directory in IIS, step 8 it suggests to ensure that a valid SSL certificate is installed on the virtual server. I used the following site;
So I notice that the server has a wizard that I can create a SSL certificate and I also know that I can purchase from a vendor such as verisign. However, I am unclear on a few things...
1) what is the differnce between a server made certificate and a purchased certificate? pros/cons of each
2) I want to use this certificate for rpc-http, after applying the certificate how will this affect the other users that hit the exchange box that are not rpc-http clients? ie: regular exchange mail users, OWA users, ect.
