Change FQDN on exchange 2007 server to match SSL cert.

Our Exchange 2007 server blew up and took out the the Active Directory Controller (it was ugly).

We decided to start over on both servers.   I was able to get the SSL cert reissued since I lost my original key.  The problem that I have now is that the SSL cert is for:

          vtiexchange.<domain>.net

but the exchange server is presenting itself as

          vtiexchange.vti.<domain>.com   (vti is our Active Directory Domain)

NOTE:  we own both the <domain>.net and <domain>.com domains.

Everytime we open Outlook, we get a security warning saying that the name on the security certificate is invalid or  does not match the name of the site.  Going to the OWA webpage works  fine (https://vtiexchange.<domain>.net/owa).

I tried changing the "set-receive connector" through the GUI to be vtiexchange.<domain>.net but I get an error saying that I can only set it to vtiexchange (NETBIOS) or vtiexchange.vti.<domain>.com (FQDN).

The authority that issued the SSL cert will only send me a new one as long as the Common Name stays the same and I'm trying to avoid buying a new cert.

Bottom line:   is it possible to change the name of the Exchange Server to match the SSL cert or do I need to buy another cert?

Thank you in advance,

Dan
