Exchange Autodiscover Question

I have an Exchange 2010 server and downloaded an SSL certificate for mail.example.com.
I have split DNS example.com for external and example.local for internal.
My CAS server internal url for activesync is setup for https://server.example.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml and my external url is https://server.example.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml
I have setup my external DNS A record to point to my exchange server for the activesync and autodiscover names
When I run exchange connectivity remote analyzer tool i get

      ExRCA is testing Exchange ActiveSync.
       The Exchange ActiveSync test failed.
