Hi Experts,
I have a small network, one 2003 DC (file and print server) and 15 workstations. I have decided adding a seperate windows 2008 R2 with exchange 2010 and I did. Now I am able to send and receive an emails without any problem. However, I have an issue that is certificate. Since I didn't expect the exchange server, I used domain name abc.com (for example) but acutual domain name is abcxyz.com so I got a certificate from godaddy.com for abcxyz.com but abc.com. This gives me some issue. First I am getting security warning whenever I open outlook. I just hit yes or no then it opens outlook no problem. I also realized that out of office assistant is not working for all workstations. I think this is related to the security.
What is my best solution for this at this moment? I cannot reinstall both servers.
Do I have to install ceriticate server on exchange server? If so, please let me know how to.
Thanks in advance

You dont need to re-install server or install certificate server.

Get a proper certificate from godaddy and install it in Exchange. - Create a new cert request from Exchange with correct domain info and that will solve your issues.

OOF issue is because of the wrong certificate/configuration of urls.

You don't need abc.com, get one for your own domain and reconfigure all exchange urls.

If the error is only internal, run get-clientaccessserver | fl name, *uri

The autodiscoverserviceinternaluri should point to a url in your cert and your internal DNS should resolve it.

Create a new zone in your internal DNS server name it as abcxyz.com as create an A record 'mail.externaldomainname.com' pointing to your exchange server.

Then as mentioned above change all your URLs .

Please ignore the above post.

Create a new zone in your internal DNS server name it as abcxyz.com and create an A record 'externalname.externaldomainname.com' pointing to your exchange server.

Then as mentioned above change all your URLs .

Attached a sample command for 2 servers exchange environment. You make the changes and make both internal and external the same.
