After checking authentication, give a try on the encryption level of Forms Based authentication. Set it to None

I thinks here's the problem.  The genious who names the server used an _ in its name which causes an issue.  The way around this is a created a CNAME record called mail to refer to the exchange server in DNS so when asked for the common name when issuing the certifuicate I used cname.domain name.  As long as I got to https://cname/exchange I can log in.  Does any of this make sense?  Is there a way I can redirect everything coming form https://server_1/exchange to https://cname/exchange?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

yes, you just need to have the appropriate DNS records pointing to the IP address of your exchange server and the certificate must match the DNS record

server = server_1
DNS A record = mail.domain.com
certificate subject name = mail.domain.com
