We have a new exchange server which we have added a private SSL certificate ie

This is installed correctly. But since we added this we have been getting an error on starting Outlook 2010.

"The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the site."

I read an article on this which said we should run some shell commands to rename it correctly.

We completed :-

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity FSAMS2 -AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri

And we confirmed that this change had been implemented.

However, on trying the second step ie :-

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "FSAMS2\EWS (Default Web Site)" –InternalUrl

We get an error :-

The host specified for the "internal URL" parameter cannot be resolved. are you sure you want to continue?

Can anyone help?

I have also noticed that since we made the change, the reported error no longer appears, but we do get a sync error when sending / receiving within outlook 2007. ie

Microsoft Offline Address Book
Not downloading offline address book files. A server (URL) could not be located.

Any help would be much appreciated.
