Ran BPS on an Exchagne 2010 running on W2008R2 after installing Exchange 2010 SP1

Get one critical error that is Certificate SAN mismatch

The subject alternative name (SAN) of SSL certificate for https://mail.domain.com/ews/exchange.asmx does not appear to match the host address. Host address: mail.domain.com. Current SAN: DNS Name=W2008R2, DNS Name=W2008R2.domain.com.

I have an "outside DNS A record for mail.domain.com and a reverse dns record to use mail.domain.com

The certificate is self issued.

Thanks

you need to obtain a SAN/UCC certifacate from certificate vendor or from a internal CA if you have any
the certificate should have following subject names

1. mail.yourdomain.com
2.FQDN of your exch server
3. autodiscover.yourdomain.com
4.netbios name of your exch server

the self signed cert is not UCC / SAN that why you got this error.

that really depends on your exchange usage. if you have remote users like
iphone or outlook anywhere that connect to exchange using outlook on internet they will not be be able to connect

domain users will work seamlessly if you do not have outside cert

I have 1 iPhone user and a couple that use OWA, but when they get the Cert Warning, I tell them to ignore and click through..

Its a non-profit charity so they want to spend as little as possible..
