Hi

We are going to migrate from exchange 2007 to 2010. one of the IT service company is going to do this migration for us. I have not still built the Exchange 2010 server yet.

In advance I thought of buying  SSL and keeping it ready for the webmail access. Now the SSL company has asked me to create CSR and submit to create a SSL.

To create a CSR do I need create it on the designated new Exchange server, which I am going to build. Or can I create the CSR on any server on our network and submit for the SSL creation.  

Thanks

Typically you will need to create the CSR on the new Exchange server. You will want to purchase a sAN/UCC cert and then add then following names to it...
- autodiscover.domain.com
- mail.domain.com
- legacy.domain.com

The legacy.domain.com will be the URL you will use for your old Exchange server while the transition is happening. When users connect to your 2010 CAS server if their mailbox resides on 2007 they will be redirected to the legacy.domain.com URL automatically.

Once you have the CSR created it will be exportable. So you can import the cert into the new Exchange server (assign the services to the cert IIS, SMTP) then you can export the cert and import it on all other CAS servers (this also includes the 2007 exchange CAS servers).

If you are also using a load balancer you can also assign the cert to this instead of putting it on all of the Exchange servers.
