Exchange 2007 SSL Certificates

Greetings,

I had recently taken over an existing Exchange 2007 implementation and yesterday realized that the SSL certificates had expired for owa and autodiscovery.  I was able to get the certificates renewed and everything seems to be working just fine at this point.

My concern is some other self signed certificates installed within Exchange 2007 that have also expired that I need to understand and determine if I need to renew them or not.

Here is an export of all certificates installed on Exchange 2007.

Well, based on what you show here - you only need a new self-signed certificate for SMTP.

 The valid values for services are IIS, SMTP, POP, IMAP, UM. You don't have ANYTHING specified for IIS (which surprises me). But you have the other services handled just fine.

To create a new self-signed certificate for SMTP, just:

Get-ExchangeCertificate -DomainN ggiht1, ggiht1.goldengaminginc.com |
    New-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP

I thought not seeing anything for IIS was surprising as well.  But everything is working just fine.  Would you know what a possible cause for that is?

You could have a firewall or an ISA/TMG/UAG (or similar) server which is doing SSL termination; and then forwarding the decrypted packet to the Exchange server(s).
