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
