IIS generating a csr for Outlook anywhere SSL

I think I need to set up my SSL on default website but I wanted to know how  to add mail.example.com (my FQDN)and add my external devices address if I already added it to my DNS and when I go to mail.example.com it points to my external device.I was told by godaddy.com that it was very Important that I get my csr from the FQDN because I only bought a single ssl and not a wild card ssl.

on your Exchange server, have you already created the CSR?  Or is it that your question is asking how that file should be created?

Yes I am asking how I create the CSR. I didnt just want to just use default website without being sure that it was going to target mail.domain.com because I need to use it for outlook anywhere with outlook 2003 and exchange 2003.

You can use this web page to automatically generate the powershell command to run on the Exchange server: https://www.digicert.com/easy-csr/exchange2007.htm

Since you didn't get a UCC or a wildcard certificate, you can leave the "subject alternative names" section empty.  GoDadddy will probably just ignore anything you put in there.  The crucial field is the "common name" field. Make sure to set that to be the same as the external FQDN of the Exchange server.

Can you tell me if my DNS needs to point my FQDN to my external or internal address?
0
esmith69Commented:
external address

Then your firewall/NAT device needs to be setup to do the translation between external address and internal address

Sorry, I don't know why I assumed you had Exchange 2007.

Here are instructions for Exchange 2003:  http://www.digicert.com/csr-creation-microsoft-outlook-web-access.htm

hmm my option is to renew a certification I dont see an option to make a new one though

esmith69Commented:
That probably means there's already one installed.  I'd try choosing the option to remove the current certificate, then go back in and see if it then gives you the option to create a new cert.

Night_Wolf87Author Commented:
It did, what if those other certs where tied to something else? I backed them up just in case.

esmith69Commented:
Well you can only have one cert installed on the default web site at a time, so you'd end up replacing it with the godaddy cert anyways.
0
esmith69Commented:
and I doubt that cert is truly gone.  If you go to your CA you could probably get it back.  Actually you could probably choose the option right there in IIS to "assign an existing certificate" and I think it should show the one you just removed.
