I just purchased a Standard UCC SLL (up to 5) certificate from Godaddy. I currently have an SSL Certificate installed on an Exchange 2003 server. I've installed a new Exchange 2010 server, and have them coexisting for the time being. I have not moved the mailboxes over yet, but will soon.
I want to get the SSL certificate setup and ready on the Exchange 2010 server, and when I initiated the New Exchange Certificate, I selected all items on Exchange Configuration (Share, Outlook WebApp, Exchange ActiveSync, Web Services, OWA, and Autodiscover, POP/IMAP, Hub Transport, and Legacy). I omitted Unified Messaging.
Anyway, when pasting the CSR I see 7 subject names when there is a limit of 5 as per the certificate that was purchased. Please note our AD domain uses .local.
I need to enable secure communications for OWA and ActiveSync.
I am not sure if I need Outlook Web App, Hub Transport Server, or Legacy Exchange Server. I do not believe we use POP/IMAP, so they can be excluded if necessary.
I contacted Godaddy support about this, and they suggested upgrading the cert to one that supports 8 names. They also suggested I use the following article to reconfigure MS Exchange to use a FQDN.
I need to know which exchange configuration options to select when generating the CSR as described above, and then know if I should follow the steps defined in the above link to reconfigure Exchange to use FQDN.
I would like to get this certificate installed on the new Exchange 2010 server, move all the mailboxes, ensure all pubic folders replicate, and decommission the exchange 2003 server.
I also had a question as to how to tell whether the new Exchange 2010 server can send and receive mail without the existing Exchange 2010 server. I can't tell which server actually receives/sends mail. As of this morning I was able to resolve a troubling issue with the routing group connector/SMTP virtual server that would not allow mail from Exchange 2003 to a test user's mailbox on the Exchange 2010 server. So, I am curious to know how I can force mail to be sent and received on the Exchange 2010 server once all the mailboxes are moved to it.
Thank you for any feedback. I included a screenshot for a quick review.
