This is a new deployed exchange 2010 server, that holding the typical roles - MB, CAS, and HT.
Supposed that the external URL/internal URL for outlook users to access Outlookanywhere are mail.ABC.com and mail.abc.local. How should I configure the SSL cert? What should I do in order to get the correct settings in order for outlook anywhere to work? How about the ssl cert?

Thanks in advance.

I purchased a UC cert for my exchange.  As for setting up outlook anywhere all you have to do is enable it.  Here are some links to get you started.

Your Exchange Cert should include the following names (as a minimum):

mail.externaldomain.com
autodiscover.externaldomain.com
internalservername.internaldomain.local
internalservername

You also need to create a new A record in DNS (external not internal), called AUTODISCOVER and it needs to point to the IP address of your Exchange Server.

Hi,

You only need to issue a SAN cert using your public names into this cert.

No need to issue this SAN cert containing your private names because your domain already trust Exchange.

Let me know if it helped you.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

@AmonPereira - That information is not correct.  You need your internal names otherwise you will get certificate errors.

There is a way of no doing this.

You can create a Split-Dns strategy and make internal clients to resolve its internal servers matching external names.

Then create a alias for CAS Array with a external name too.

This solves a huge issue with SAN cert, because if you have a Exchange environment with 6 servers and 5 multiples names, you must have a SAN Cert with 11 names, just as an example using DigiCert cert, it might cost about U$S 900,00/year. And every new servername costs U$S 89,00 per name/year.

If you do as i say, a SAN cert might cost something below U$S 270,00/year.

Let me know if it helped.

I support a single Exch 2010 server hosting about 50 domain names and it only has a 5-name SSL cert (SAN / UCC) which cost about £120 (USD $180) for 3 years.  It doesn't have a split-dns config and the system works 100% happily.

DigiCert are a rip off - GoDaddy are infinitely cheaper and widely accepted.

If you want to give yourself a headache - sure - do it your way - but it you want it done simply and cost-effectively, follow my advice.

You don't have to have multiple domain names in the SSL cert - there are other ways around this which don't involve messing with DNS.

Alan

So you have 5 SAN Names for 50 domain names.

There is something as 3 internal names and 2 public?

Share with us, how you did in your hosting environment.

Cert names are as per my initial comment.  The rest is all about knowing how Exchange works.
