Question about Exchange 2007 Certificates,

I am working in a company lab practicing with client access/hub trasport servers renewing TLS certificates with this article;
When used Get-Certificate I saw two identical Certs for POP,SMTP,IMAP and IIS, saw when I used the cert cloning methode and deleted the old certs I did not just delete the one I replaced also delted the second old cert thinking it was  from a previous engineer rrunning a test. So now that I am done and my OWA is not working I wonder what I am missing. OWA was not working before so maybe need to review what certs I may be missing? Maybe the Cert I cloned had a problem, please review and offer suggestions;

What error does OWA give you?
This looks like a self signed certificate... so it will give you  a certificate warning when you attempt to use OWA. You can still use OWA, but you will have to 'Accept the risks' and continue even though there will be a certificate name mismatch. You could potentially import the certificate to the local trusted root authority store and you won't get the warning any more.

For a lab a self signed certificate is ok, but ideally in a production environment you'll use a certificate from a trusted public CA.

The OWA page error pag not page and domian not found, I wonder if I need a domain in the certs subject name?
So you are getting page 'Not Found' now? Go into IIS click on OWA VD, then in the middle pane, look at HTTP redirects and make sure it is not redirecting anywhere
Thanks for the points, was OWA redirecting?
