Exchange 2007 ActiveSync not working
Posted on 2009-04-06
and thank you all in advance. I have just transitioned from sbs 2003 to server 2008 64bit. The server 2008 is running exchange 2007 sp1, which took over for the exchange 2003 sp2 on the sbs box. Everything is functioning fine except activesync. I am using the default certificate that exchange 2007 sp1 creates on install. I have read that this cert will not support activesync. So my multi-part question is as follows. First, is there anyway to make the default cert work with activesync? I have tried but failed to this point.
If not is there anyway to make a self signed certificate that I create in the exchange management shell work? I have read that activesync cannot use self signed certs, but I know that there is always a chance hehe. So looking for confirmation on that.
The last question, are my only options at this point a 3rd party cert or a windows CA cert? Though it my look like I have answered some of my questions, in reading the microsoft documentation it says that activesync is suppose to install and configure when you load the exchange 2007 sp1 and be ready to go. Which of course contradicts my findings.
