Hello everyone,

I encountered a problem with SSL certificat.

I've just bought a SAN SSL certificate to protect all my external domain.
But I have now a prompt in my local domain on Outlook saying my certificate is note valide for this URL.
My Outlook client in local are connected to the Exchange server (srv-exchange.masociete.net).
Does I abligatory need to add the name of my Exchange server in the SAN ssl certificate or is there a workeround to use the generated certificate just for OWA, ActiveSync and Outlook Anywhere connection ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

thanks but the problem is my internal domain name was created with windows NT 4 and is like masociete.net and I've not bought the domain masociete.net.

Could I change the internal URL used by Outlook client to connect to Exchange ?

Could I use the command line get-clientaccessserver | fl *uri* and set-clientaccessserver -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri to change the URL to point to the URL in my certificate ?

you can do this from the EMC, give exchange 2007/2010.
You should indeed set your internal URLS to the same as the External, and have all the right internal dns records to resolve these.

Apart from that Why you keep windows NT,
Install windows2003/2008 server and promote it a domain controller and transfer all  FSMO roles.

Then change the DNS IP in the exchange server and restart and run command  'setup.com /prepareAD'
