We need to acquire an SSL certificate for our new Windows Network Load Balanced (NLB)/ Client Access Server pair (CAS) Exchange 2007 environment.

Here is the current configuration:
NLB Name:         NLB.domain.corp
CAS Node1:        HT-CA1.domain.corp      
CAS Node2:        HT-CA2.domain.corp
Public OWA address:
I am not concerned with having users connect to OWA with the server name or with the local NBL name.  Also, we don't use Outlook anywhere therefore I do not expect to need a SAN or wildcard cert.

Is this correct?  What do I need to give verisign to get an ssl cert for the public owa site?

1.  Run this command from Exchange Management Shell and give req file to Cert company:

New-Exchangecertificate -domainname -Friendlyname OWAComapny -generaterequest:$true -keysize 1024
-path c:\certrequest.req -privatekeyexportable:$true subjectname "c=Com, o=Company, CN=mail"

2.  import cert via shell:
Import-ExchangeCertificate Path c:\certnew.p7b

3.  confirm import
Get-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint <thumbprint> | FL

4.  Enable New Cert
Enable-ExchangeCertificate Thumbprint <thumbprint> -Services IIS, POP, IMAP
