I need to install a SSL cert in Exchange 2010 for a Live@edu migration, another Engineer has set up another server as well as exchange for Live@edu. ILM is installed on the other server.
As i'm taking over from someone else & have never done a Live@edu before i'm a bit lost & when i speak to Microsoft they just send me Documentation & i get more lost.
Could you basically explain to me the prcess.

What version of exchange is it?  for 2010:

Copy the your_domain_name.cer file to your Exchange server.
Start the Exchange Management Console by going to Start > Programs > Microsoft Exchange 2010 > Exchange Management Console.
Click the link to "Manage Databases", and then go to "Server configuration".

Select your certificate from the menu in the center of the screen (listed by its Friendly Name), and then click the link in the Actions menu to "Complete Pending Request".
Browse to your certificate file, then click Open > Complete.

Frequently Exchange 2010 will show an error message stating that "The source data is corrupted or not properly Base64 encoded." Ignore that error.

Hit F5 to refresh the certificate and verify that it now says "False" under "Self Signed". If it still shows "True", you may have selected the wrong certificate or you may have generated the request on a different server. To fix this, you can create a new CSR on this Exchange server and reissue the certificate.

Now, to enable your certificate for use, go back to the Exchange Management Console and click the link to "Assign Services to Certificate."

Select your server from the list provided, then click Next.

Select the services for which you would like to enable your new certificate, click Next > Assign > Finish.

Your certificate should now be Installed and Enabled for use with Exchange 2010.

Sorry, I don't have any live@edu experience :(

If you post that as a new question, someone else who has live@edu experience will be able to find it.

So did this work?  Were you able to install the certificate like you had asked?  If so, please mark as answered so others looking to do the same can find an answer.
