We have an exchange 2003 server running OWA on the inside of our network. We use a firewall to NAT over requests to IIS on the exchange server to server OWA mail. However, our host name changed due to a firewall upgrade from MAILABC to MAILXYZ. The certificate is still tied to MAILABC, but the host name that routes to the OWA website is now MAILXYZ. SSL is still enabled and required and still works, but of course the certificate states that the name doesn't match the IP and the standard warning not continue shows up. How can I REPLACE the MAILABC certificate to match the new hostname that routes to OWA to MAILXYZ without causing any problems or downtime.
As an example... people use to go to https://mailabc.test.com/exchange
, but it changed to https://mailxyz.test.com/exchange
. OWA still works, but they get the cert warning... so I'll I want to do is get a new certificate and then replace the one tied to the OWA website on the exchange server.
What are the steps....
Do I do a remove in the cert wizard or can I do a replace... if I do a replace, don't I need a CSR already pulled so I can choose one to replace with... but then does it matter what the CSR name states.... anything that can clear this up... specifically a step by step (as I know order makes a difference) on how to best accomplish this would be great.
500 points for this.
