I have setup a lab environment with 2 physical boxes. One has Windows Server 2012 Essentials as my main server. The other box has Windows Server 2012 with Exchange Server 2013.

The Essentials box has a domain name of remote.winsteaddrafting.com (which was setup by default during initial installation) I purchased a SSL certificate for remote access for this box and it works fine.

My WS 2012 box has a domain name of mail.winsteaddrafting.com. I'm having issues with setting up a SSL certificate for this box and configuring Anywhere Access for outside mail clients, etc.

I've watched the Microsoft Jump Start videos and the Virtual Academy videos but there seems to be some steps missing somewhere along the way.

Can I setup one SSL certificate to remotely access the server as well as email functions?

Do I need a wildcard certificate and can I re-issue my current cert as a wildcard?

Can you help me?

Thank you.

You will require a UCC/SAN cert to get this up and running. The names you need to incorporate in your cert will be

mail.domain.com
autodiscover.domain.com

Once you have the cert you will then need to import the cert on all Client Access Servers in your environment that are internet facing. If you are load balancing your CAS servers you can also have the load balancer hold the cert as well.

Once it is installed you will also need to assign it the appropriate services as well. which are usually SMTP,POP,IMAP,IIS.
