Requesting a Godaddy Cert for TMG 2010 web listener

Hello,

Here is the bind I'm in.

We have an exchange 2010 server that sits behind a TMG 2010  server.  

The certificate that we were using on the web listener on the TMG server for owa has expired.

I went ahead and bought a GoDaddy UCC certificate.  

I'm trying to figure out the correct way to request this certificate and get it installed on the web listener.  

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

To import the certificate:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc441505.aspx

I'm not sure if there's a specific folder you have to install them in or not, but ours are in the personal certificates folder.

Then to setup the certificate in TMG 2010, find the firewall policy for owa and:

Right click policy for owa
Go to properties
Click on the 'Listener' tab
In the 'Listener' tab click 'Properties...'
Click the 'Certificates' tab
Click 'Select Certificate...'
Select the cert you imported from above and click 'Select'
Click OK until you're out and that should be it

Thanks for the reply pwnbasketz

I agree that will allow me to import it into the TMG Web listener.

My main issues is getting the certificate for importing.  

From what I'm reading I will need to generate a CRS request so to get the certificate from GoDaddy.  

I don't see a way to do that from the TMG server.  I read that people do it from the exchange 2010 certificate wizard.  Then import that certificate into the exchange server.  

If that is the case am I to export the certificate and then import it into the TMG 2010 server for the web listener to use?

Yes from within the Exchange management console select Server Configuration(with that selected you will see a option on far right pane to create a new Exchange certificate request).

Once you have the CSR, you can request the certificate from GoDaddy. then you import the new certificate back within exchange and finally on your web listener on TMG that relate to the exchange services you publishing. Hope that helps

That sounds right.  That was my fault on that one (i misread the question).  But yes, you should generate the CSR from the exchange server, then complete the pending request and then export the certificate.  From everything I have read up on this, Forefront just needs the final certificate imported so that it can perform the SSL bridging (which enables it to scan the packets as they come in and then forward to the destination).
