Hi Expert,

Today my SSL certificate for my OWA is expired and I have renewed it.  But after renewal, I need to put Mydomain\user name to be able to logon OWA.  Before renewal, we can login wightout Domain name.   I did verify  Forms-Based Authentication is enable and my domain name is showed in the default domain of the authentication method.

Please help on the issue.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Have you added the new SSL Cert for OWA to the trusted stores on the client PCs you're logging into OWA from as well as the stores on the DCs?

It turns out only a few users have to use domain name to login.  Most users don't have the issue.  so I think the configuration is correct.  

How to add the cert to the trusted stores on both client and DC?

Thanks

Are you aware that all Exchange 2003 support, including paid support calls and security updates end April 8, 2014? Best to get off Exchange 2003 ASAP.

there is no logical way to explain why only a few users have to use the domain name.

changing SSL certificate don't break authentication method (it either break something or pass something)


did you have multiple exchange servers?

Make sure in your Exchange Server, IIS folder (default website), your OWA properties in the Directory Security tab, authentication and access control, have Integrated Windows Authentication, Basic authentication and the default Domain field has your domain name.

Restart the IIS for changes to take effect.

No, we only have one Exchange.

We verified what Hecgomrec said.  

It looks like the time to get out of Exchange 2003.  which one should we go, Office 365 or Google Apps?  

Thanks

We are using public cert so we don't have to put it in AD.  I've opened another case for Office 365 and Google Apps.  Thanks
