Hi

is it possible to create a SAN certificate for exchange 2007, for 2 domains? instead of purchsing a certificate. I would like to know how, and put this certificate into IIS for users to authenticate to for OWA and active sync....

i need a SAN certificate because i have an internal and external URL for OWA access, one ends in romgroup.com and the other romgroup.co.uk

Like this:

You should replace values in -FriendlyName, -subjectName to reflect your company info.

New-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName apple.romgroup.co.uk, apple.romgroup.com , autodiscover.rom.co.uk autodiscover.rom-tech.co.uk autodiscover.rfa-tech.co.uk -FriendlyName RomGroup -GenerateRequest:$True -Keysize 1024 -path c:\romgroup.req -privatekeyExportable:$true -subjectName "c=us, o=RomGroup, CN=apple.romgroup.co.uk"

Hi heinoskov

And will this certificate be ok to sync with Exchange - via windows mobile 5/6?

https://apple,riomgroup.co.uk/owa is the external OWA address
https://apple.romgroup.com/owa is the internal address

the company is ROM

i ran the above command, changed CN=apple.romgroup.com which is the server name, but it cannot find parameter for o=rom ....?below is the syntax from the command shell...

[PS] C:\Documents and Settings\bossman\Desktop>New-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName apple.romgroup.com, apple.r
omgroup.co.uk, autodiscover.rom.co.uk, autodiscover.rom-tech.co.uk, autodiscover.rfa-tech.co.uk, -FriendlyName
 RomGroup -GenerateRequest:$True -Keysize 1024 -path c:\romgroup.req -privatekeyExportable:$true -subjectName
"c=uk, o=Rom, CN=apple.romgroup.com"

New-ExchangeCertificate : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'RomGroup'.
At line:1 char:24
+ New-ExchangeCertificate  <<<< -DomainName apple.romgroup.com, apple.romgroup.co.uk, autodiscover.rom.co.uk,
 autodiscover.rom-tech.co.uk, autodiscover.rfa-tech.co.uk, -FriendlyName RomGroup -GenerateRequest:$True -Key
size 1024 -path c:\romgroup.req -privatekeyExportable:$true -subjectName "c=uk, o=Rom, CN=apple.romgroup.com"

i have managed to create the cert using the above syntax (see attached), but it did not create a file in the C: drive ..? is this normal? - if so how do i import this cert and test it so it authenticates to romgroup.com and romgroup.co.uk..??

thanks

hi

i used the below syntax to create a SAN cert with multiple names, the output being c:\romgroup.req which i believe is not a viewable file, what is the next step in using this cert?

i'm hoping to use it so OWA users both internally/externally can authenticate to the FQDN of the server; apple.romgroup.com and the external address of apple.romgroup.co.uk

New-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName apple.romgroup.com, apple.romgroup.co.uk, autodiscover.rom.co.uk, autodiscover.rom-tech.co.uk, autodiscover.rfa-tech.co.uk, -FriendlyName
 RomGroup -GenerateRequest:$True -Keysize 1024 -path c:\romgroup.req -privatekeyExportable:$true -subjectName "c=uk, o=Rom, CN=apple.romgroup.com"

or if someone can show me how to setup exchange 2007 to use one URL for OWA which is the server name; for both internal and external access, please? -  this would be better...
