Hi,

We are getting this message now when user opens Outlook 2007 on their PC - "The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"

Is there a way to get rid of this without having to replace the certificate or some sort?

Cheers,
Goraek

Yes, it is valid. There have 2 domains - domain.com and domain1.com. We have a certificate for domain.com but not domain1.com.

Hence, when we opened Outlook 2007, it is showing autodiscover.domain1.com.

Is there a way to get rid of this and revert back to normal settings?

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.

Microsoft DNS? Yes it is.
However we deleted domain1.com as domain.com is primary. At the moment, the security is showing autodiscover.domain1.com - we need to get rid of this.
