MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer Exchange ActiveSynch test uses to old certificate

I recently migrated SBS 2003 (including Exchange 2008) to SBS 2011 using the Migration Wizard.  Almost everything went smoothly.  When I run the MS Remote Connectivity Analyzer to test Exchange ActiveSynch, it logs in and obtains the remote SSL certificate ok, but the certificate it obtains refers to the old SBS 2003 Server, not the new SBS 2011 server.

The error(s) ("Validating certificate name", "Validating SSL Certificate") all refer to the Remote Certificate as Subject:, CN=companyweb, CN=OldServer, CN=localhost, CN=OldServer.CorrectDomain.local, Issuer:, CN=companyweb, CN=OldServer, CN=localhost, CN=OldServer.CorrectDomain.local.

I have purchased and installed a new Exchange Certificate from GoDaddy, assuming that it would replace the incorrect one, but it didn't.  I can't find this old certificate to remove or replace it.  I can't figure out where it is getting this certificate. Any suggestions?

I discovered after more investigation that the old certificate had been installed in the firewall device ( before my time). It was then an easy fix to remove the certificate from there, and then the new cert was visible. I guess the lesson is to not make your assumptions about where a problem lies too narrow.

Did you just import the OLD certs without modfying them ??

Run the command
Get-Exchangecertficates also check with IIS

Did you redirect port 443 to your new server or is it still pointing to the old server?

Rancy:  Get-ExchangeCertificate refers to the correct certificate.  What do you mean 'check with IIS"?
AlanHardesty:  Port 443 points to the new server and the old server is offline anyway.
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
To check the Cert - go to the Exchange Management Console and under Server Config you should see the certificate that is installed and active.

Is that the right one?

The problem was solved once the location of the old certificate was discovered.
