Hi All,

I'm looking to re-do an Exchange 2010 UC Certificate.

What I would like to know is, is there any point to having the local host name of the Exchange server included in the certificate?

The network uses a split DNS and users can access mail using the external name of the mail server inside and outside of the network.

Thanks!

There is no use of having the local server name on your certificate if you have configured your exchange to use the external name and use split dns.

It is even better, because certificate providers will not trust internal server  names on certificates from 2015:

If you have split DNS already in place, then just ensure that you have configured Exchange to use the external name everywhere internally as well.

Then you don't need the internal name anywhere.
