Exchange 2010 Autodiscover Recommendation
Posted on 2010-11-11
Firstly I'm used to exchange 2003, so 2010 is giving me headaches. If I'm way off base here please straighten me out...
We deployed our first EX2010 server into a branch office instead of our main office. All other servers are 2003 (we skipped 2007). I'm preparing to get a certificate for the 2010 server and I'm struggling with how to deal with Autodiscover. Ultimately I think we will want our main office server to handle Autodiscover someday when that office moves to 2010, or Autodiscover would be handled by all offices that have 2010.
So, I need to add the domain name autodiscover.domain.com to the CSR, but someday if I want another server to handle autodiscover I'm assuming I won't be able to get another certificate for autodiscover.domain.com. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I think the CA won't grant me two certificates for the same domain name?
What's the recommended way to handle the situation where there are potentially multiple autodiscover servers using the same domain name that all need SSL?
