Exchange 2010 SSL offloading and binding to services on CAS
Posted on 2013-11-14
We are planning on utilizing SSL offloading so we can leverage our netscaler loadbalancers for SSL termination. A question I have is once I receive my 3rd party certificate and install it on the 2010 CAS servers is it necessary to bind it to any services? My gut feeling says no as I will need to make changes to the IIS virtual directories and turn off SSL. However, since Exchange installs a self signed cert which binds itself will outlook clients receive security warning notifications about the self signed cert? I do know that until the 3rd party cert is installed users will receive these warnings however in order for those warnings to go away does the cert need to be bound as well? Any information would be appreciated!
