Requesting a UCC in Exchange 2010...what should I add?
Posted on 2011-02-14
I have a 2003 and 2010 Exchange Server in my org. Nothing but test mailboxes on the Exchange 2010 box.
I bought and installed a SSL from GoDaddy for Active Sync and OWA on the 2010 box and they work fine. Issue I am having is if I open a mailbox internally that is currently on 2010 Server box I get a Security Alert that states "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site" I understand why I am getting that message as the internal url is not on the certificate that IIS is using.
So I need to get a UCC that contains both the name of the internal URL and the external URL correct? And if I understand correctly the external facing URL needs to be the common name on the cert correct?
Anyways, creating the cert within Exchange 2010 is pretty straight forward until I get to one particular area where I need to choose Autodiscover. Autodiscover used on the INTRANET is grayed out but Autodiscover used on the INTERNET is not. In the Autodiscover URL to use box, all of the domains that I have listed on the Exchange Server as accepted domains are listed. About 22 email domains in total, all legit email domains we use.
Now my big question is do I NEED to keep all of these domains in the there? In a demo video I saw, the walk-through said I should just have in there my external url...such as autodiscover.mail.drtvpn.com Is this correct?? Should the internal url be in there as well? I'm not clear exactly on what fields should be in this box.
On the next page, Certificate of Domains it lists autodiscover.xxx.xxx for all of the accepted domains and also the internal and external urls with the external url being the common name in bold.
If I could get some assistance in what I need for the autodiscover fields that would be great
