Exchange 2010 new ssl cert not including *.local server name

Posted on 2014-08-01

Since new ssl cert requirements are not allowing the servers local names to be included I have run into a few issues.  I have followed the posts that go through the Exchange Shell and make the following changes for the .local changes:

Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity “server-name” –AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri https://”mx-record name”/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity ““server-name”\EWS (Default Web Site)”-InternalUrl https://”mx-record name”/ews/exchange.asmx

Set-OABVirtualDirectory -Identity ““server-name”\oab (Default Web Site)”-InternalUrl https://”mx-record name”/oab
2.      Open IIS Manager.
3.      Expand the local computer, and then expand Application Pools.
4.      Right-click MSExchangeAutodiscoverAppPool, and then click Recycle.

Since then the clients are getting multiple errors in Outlook.  First is a cert error that initially points to their mx-record name and then they get one that is coming from their firewall...  The next issue is that they can no longer activate the Out of Office assistant from outlook either.  They are getting the server is unavailable..  That started after I completed the above changes...  OOF works from OWA..

are you using split dns?

Windows - Setting Up Split DNS

in other words, do you have a local dns zone for your external domain pointing to your internal servers so that they can resolve as .com instead of .local internally as to match the certificate and configured exchange URLs?
