OCS 2007 Address Book Not Syncing

My clients are getting that great and famous error - Cannot synchronize with the corporate address book....

I'm stumped as how to fix this.

1 - If I browse to the URL that is configured within OCS: https://ocspool.fzsd.loc/Abs/Int/Handler I get a warning about the certificate not being valid as I created it with my interal cert server.  (We are not allowing external access).  When I accept the warning, I am then prompted with a 404 - File or directory not found error.

2 - If i browse to the Output location, I see all sorts of .DABS files, LSABS files and the Invalid_AD_Phone_Numbers.txt file

The files exist and are being generated on a nightly basis.  I just cannot figure out how to get the clients to download the files.

I have also turned off the SSL requirements and no longer get the security error, but I still get the 404 error.

Thoughts????

I'm thinking that this is in the wrong zone - i couldn't find:  Home/OS/Microsoft OS/MS Server/ OS/Microsoft LCS  as the options.

to download the address boo, correctly, you must have the certificate warning disappeared, make sure that the certificate has the name ocspool.fzsd.loc in it using a SAN

Is there a way to do that without having to go and buy a cert?  Can I
 get one from microsoft certificate services?

ok.. here is the first thing

we need to create a valid certificate for ocs pool with proper subject names
once that certificate warning is taken care of..

Right click your server pool and select certificates. Then run throught the wizard and send the request to your local CA. The import step is at the end when it asks you if you want to assign the certificate. Assign your new cert to the pool and your all

make sure you select all appropriate alternative names
once.. the warning is gone .. if users still face issues .. please post the error here

The certificate wasn't the hanging point.  I rebuilt on 2008, non r2, and everything worked immediately, even with my home built cert.  When I publish it outside the domain, then I'll put a valid cert on it.  THanks for everyones help.
