Problem with new SSL certificate
Posted on 2013-05-16
I have a small SBS2008 network of 10 users and I use a standard single Godaddy SSL certificate for OWA etc.
Rather than renew the SSL for five years at £200 a pop, I opted for a new 5 year option at £20 and, because of the time delay in verifying the certificate, I started the CSR request before the old one expired.
This meant renaming the common name from remote.ourdomain.com to mail.ourdomain.com. I installed it yesterday in IIS7 and OWA is working fine with the new name.
I thought everyone would need to change the mail server on the their Blackberries and iPhones but (up to now) they are working fine with the old one. However, today the workstations are getting the Outlook 2007 security alert which says the name on the certificate is wrong or invalid. You can view the certificate (the new one), but it's looking for the old one.
I saw something online about adding my IP address and cert name to Hosts, but this didn't work.
Thanks for any ideas.
