microsoft exchange 2007 security alert error on outlook open the name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site
Posted on 2014-02-18
hello all- in an attempt to upgrade an ssl certificate on one of our exchange servers, it seems something wrong has been done and now we are all receiving the following alert when we open outlook
a Security Alert popup appears with the FQDN of my exchange server and there is a Check mark for the first 2 items (1) the security certificate is from a trusted certifying authority and (2) the security certificate date is valid but a red X for the last item which states "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site."
Do you want to Proceed?
if i hit yes, i get the same error one more time and can hit yes to get rid of it, but i still get this error every time i open outlook
the following commands were run on the exchange server to "upgrade" the certificate
import-exchangecertificate -path c:\certificate.txt
enable-exchangecertificate -services SMTP (enter thumbprint)
enable-exchangecertificate -services IIS (enter thumbprint)
im sure this overwrote an existing exchange cert and im not sure why this was done this way, but, i wasnt the tech that handled it, i am just trying to clean up the mess!
