What type of SSL Certificate do I need for SBS server 2008
Posted on 2009-05-05
I just wanted to check on the type of SSL Certificate I would need to get when running SBS 2008 to provide full functionality. Is it possible to get away with using a single domain name certificate which simply verifies remote.domain.com or do I need a unified certifiate that verifies multiple domain names - if there is something I am missing here please let me know.
The reason I ask is that with Exchange 2007 they have Unified certificates that allow you to be able to include multiple domain names. Not such a problem until you start using things like Outlook Anywhere and have Outlook 2007 (Autodiscover). For this they seem to push the unified ones and with SBS 2008 running Exchange 2007 I just wanted to check. As with everything the unified certificates for Exchange 2007 are 4 to 5 times the price of your standard SSL certificate, but I would rather pay less if I can.
Anyway if someone could let me know a bit more about the best type of certificate for SBS 2008 it would be appreciated.
