Hi Support,

OWA has stopped working after i un-installed Mail Marshall exchange, i get the following error below when i test connectivity on testexchangeconnectivity.com site:

Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
Test Steps
ExRCA is attempting to obtain the SSL certificate from remote server exchange.questek.co.za on port 443.
ExRCA wasn't able to obtain the remote SSL certificate.
Additional Details
The certificate couldn't be validated because SSL negotiation wasn't successful. This could have occurred as a result of a network error or because of a problem with the certificate installation.

Please assist Thanks,

Check to see if the certificate is still there, if not try to re-import the ssl certificate.

I'm running Exchange 2007, on a Windows 2008 Server machine. could you maybe provide a solution particular to Exchange 2007 or iis7?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Guys, hang on why jumping to create new certs - what if he already has a cert installed.

@ xpandit: Run the following cmdlet

Get-ExchangeCertificate - check the output and verify if you have a valid cert.

Next, check if locally on your CAS server you can browse OWA and verify the cert on your IE, https://localhost/owa

Hi Thanks for your help, the problem has been resolved. I resolved the problem editing bindings in iis , 443 wasn't looking at the correct certficate.
