Exchange 2003 with .local extension
Posted on 2006-07-24
hi, i'm having dificulty setting up OWA on a Domain with a example.local extension. I do not have any troubles setting it up with a .com or .co.za extension. is their some way i can work around this??
For example: how i set it up normally is as follow, I create an SSL certificate called secure.example.com/co.za on the Internal Server/mail. SSL and OWA internaly works fine, no problems. The other thing is we run ISA 2004, now i create the neccesary rules and I don't have any troubles from the outside/internet. all is well when i do this with a .com or.co.za extension.
But as soon as a domain has a .local extension i have troubles. i know that .local cannot be resolved externally, and i use SBS 2003 premuim.all my services\applications are running off a single DC. IF i use a certificate called secure.example.local, how will i use this from the internet?? because you cannot use .local. as far as i know the Certificate you create needs to match the internal mail server/domain name?? changing the Hosts file and adding an entry would'nt help either??
Is their a work around on this or not??
