Exchange 2010 Cert error

Hi all,

I am looking to see if someone can link me to a workaround for issuing a new cert that includes SAN to resolve my issues on a network I inherited.

Currently - I just resolved the Free/Busy, OOF issues internally by adjusting all my internal URL's.  I have a single issue cert. that includes only webmail.domain.ca.  It has no SAN.

I know the proper resolution is to issue a multi-cert (can't recall the actual name for that right now) that includes autodiscover.domain.ca and localservername.domain.local.

Is there a workaround to Exchange 2010 that can let me prevent the Outlook pop up with security alert "servername.domain.local" and 'The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site'.

Thanks!

Yes, user set-clientaccessserver -autodiscoverinternalserviceuri to https://webmail.domain.ca/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml. This article has more detail: http://www.shudnow.net/2013/07/26/outlook-certificate-error-and-autodiscover-domain-com-not-working/

You will also want to do this for the other URLs Exchange uses as described here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=exchange+2010+web+serivices+urls&src=IE-TopResult&FORM=IE11TR&conversationid=.

I recommend setting the internal and external urls to use the FQDN that's on your certificate. You should make sure that that FQDN is reachable by both users inside the firewall and outside.

Thanks for the reply Julian.

However, it was set to the webmail.domain.ca previously, and would not resolve/time out looking for it hence my change to the internally resolve-able FQDN.

I am looking over your article now.  I can always hit the URL externally on all /ews /autodiscover /owa etc., but internally was the issue and my 'forced hand' at changing all the URL's to reflect FQDN to make sure that my users could hit the OOF buttons and so on to make it work.

You need a split DNS so the external host name resolves internally.
http://semb.ee/splitdns

Then you can configure everything to use the external host name internally.

Looks like a reasonable solution sembee, I'll hammer that out after hours today and see what happens.  

Thanks!

Agreed, the urls mentioned in the article I sent above must be reachable internally and proper DNS configuration will enable that..

Simon,

I just flipped all the records for internal URL's back to webmail, and configured the internal DNS server ( hosted on another virtual server internally ) as suggested.  I am essentially back at square one.  I have an SRV record, and the new zone for webmail.domain.ca pointing to my internal IP for the Exchange server.  Doesn't fly.  No OOF, no Free/Busy.

Tentatively, I appear to have resolved it through catching a typo, and making some other network changes.  More testing and an update on the matter tomorrow.

As far as my message about DNS testing not working, it could be related to a record I am unable to clear linking to the previous and dead DNS server.
