Hi Ehab,

You don't need to change anything in the client side. Just move mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to 2010 and clients are reconfigured automatically.

If you are using self signed certs, then you can still use self signed certs in Ex 2010. You'll probably want to create a Certificate authority so you can have more control over certs and certs trusts.

I think the outlookanywhere in outlook in some users who has laptop will ask for new certifcate

but still the old Databases Read the old Cluster name as default CAS server

Shal I move users in new database or I run command to change the default CAS for 2007 Databases ??

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ehab,

MAPI users still need certificates for Autodiscover and Exchange Web Services (free busy and OAB for example).

You'll probably have to create a new one and install it in both servers. This new cert hast to have the internal urls for EWS, Autodiscover and OAB, OWA, ECP, ActiveSync. (you can configure all of them to whatever you want, and if you have an array you want them to point to the balanced FQDN of the array).

If you publish Exchange with ISA, then the ISA has to have a cert with the External URLs for those services.

Then you have to configure those certs as trusted for all the clients in your network.

No users need certificates. If you have created your own certificate it should be issued from your own (internal) certificate authority.

The Certificates authoritys certificate needs to be added to all the client computers computer account certificates store to avoide certificate warnings. Personally Im advising you to get a SSL certificate from a third party, like verisign or godaddy.


You can use one single certificate on all computers but you will need the following names:
webmail.yourdomain.com (the external web name)
autodiscover.yourdomain.com
legacy.yourdomain.com
internalfqdn of all of your exchange servers
casarray.yourinternaldomainname.com (this only if you will load balance cas / hub transport servers)
