Experts,

Need your help! We just added 2010 Exchange and now getting Security Alerts on clients with Outlook 2010. How do we fixed this? Do we need a cert? Or can this be fixed without one?

This is certificate related and you would be best advised to buy one.  You will need a SAN / UCC (Multi-Name) SSL Cert (minimum 5 names) and you will need to include the following names in the Certificate:

mail.externaldomain.com (or whatever you choose to use)
autodiscover.externaldomain.com
internalservername.internaldomain.local
internalservername

Once installed, the errors will go away and things like Activesync / OWA will be happy and won't complain one little bit.

GoDaddy are about the cheapest.

Will a CSR required? Also, how do we install the cert? Our CAS server is windows 2008 R2.

Yes - you need to generate a CSR for Exchange to be able to order a certificate.  Run the Wizard in the Exchange Management Console> Server Configuration and make sure you end up with all the names I have suggested at the end of the wizard before you proceed.

Then copy / paste the contents of the CSR into your SSL Cert site, wait for them to approve the cert, download it and then import / enable the certificate using the Exchange Management Shell using these commands:

Import-ExchangeCertificate -FileData ([Byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path c:\PathToCertificate\IssuedCert.cer -Encoding byte -ReadCount 0))

Get-ExchangeCertificate

Copy / paste the Thumbprint from the cert you installed above and replace the Thumbprint in the command below

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 5113ae0233a72fccb75b1d0198628675333d010e -Services POP,IMAP,SMTP,IIS

Job done - sit back and enjoy a Certificate Error Free life (until Cert renewal time)!!

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

If you dont have budget for it, you can also install (trust) the probably self signed certificate on the client:

You don't need to generate one for multiple domain names.

You can host multiple domain names with Exchange with just a 5-name SSL certificate and have everything work happily.

Setup an Autodiscover A record for your Primary Domain name (or an SRV record pointing to a name in your SSL cert e.g., mail.domaina.com) and then setup an SRV record for all the other domain names and point the SRV record to mail.domaina.com and there won't be any complaints.  I do this myself and it works like a charm :)
