Best Practice Analyzer states

The subject alternative name (SAN) of SSL certificate for https:mail.seainc.net/autodiscover/autdiscover.xml does not appear to match the host address. Host address: Mail.seainc.com. Current SAN: DNS Name=Seainc.com, DNS Name=remote.seainc.com, DNS Name=SEADC.seainc.local

our remote mail is at mail.seainc.com/remote, and I get a certificate error saying it's actually "remote.server.com"

How do I correct the certificate?

I type in get-exchangecertificate and it gives me 5 or so thumbs that all but 1 point to remote.seainc.net

How do I point it all too mail.seainc.com

>> What are the other SAN entries you have on this cert.
do you have the CAS servers FQDN name listed in the SAN values?

Run Internet Address Management wizard and specify mail.doamin.com instead of remote.doamin.com

reboot when you are done that should do it

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I re-configured it to remote.seainc.net to see if it would come back up. It does work internally.

Event log had some generic distributedCOM errors in application.

Don't really see anything worth mentioning in event log

Terminal services is littered with Event IDs400


The Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server must be available on the network and the appropriate services must be running on the TS Gateway server. The Terminal Services connection authorization policy (TS CAP) and Terminal Services resource authorization policy (TS RAP) stores must also be available, so that these policies can be evaluated to determine whether remote clients meet policy requirements. TS CAPs specify who can connect to a TS Gateway server. TS RAPs specify the internal network resources (computers) that clients can connect to through a TS Gateway server. If TS CAPs and TS RAPs are not available, the TS Gateway server will not be available for client connections.

I reloaded a configuration of my watchgaurd firewall before I started having any issues. Checked the A-records with my domain host. Rebooted, and waited 20-30 minutes before anything.

Seems to be corrected. Thanks!
