Hello Experts,

I really need help now. Iam stucked in applying a certificate to a exchange server.
Unfortunately the last working cert was deleted by misstake so we couldnt renew this one.

Till now I followed those steps:

I created a new certificate with: New-ExchangeCertificate
cert
Now, when the client is going to open Outlook 2010 (internal network) a message is coming up:

"The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"
"The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"
Allready found the KB981954 but I could not get thru.
I tried to enter the first promt:
Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity PDC -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://pdc.ep.local/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

but now Im stucked.
Still got the same issue.
Unfortunately Im not that habit to exchange certs.

Thanks in advance for your help

What is the name of the server internally and what name/subject alternative names are on the cert?

Did you install the intermediate cert from the provider?

Have you rebooted or restarted Exchange services since applying the cert?

Hi Metaltree,

thanks for your reply. No, I havent restarted the services. The certificate is created by exchange itself, no provider.

The NETBIOS Name for the Server is PDC inside the domain ep.local

If this is an SBS and you're using a self signed cert you should follow this process:

Hi There,

yes its a SBS2008!
By starting the "new certificate Wizard" it shows up a Error: No Domainname was found on the server.

The strange Thing is, that the last certificate worked fine, but now its gettig wired :-/

----

The question is, if I will damage the whole server by starting the Adress-Wizard?
