Server 2012 Essentials Remote Web Access - Invalid Certificate
Posted on 2014-08-15
Hello. I have a problem with RWA on a Windows Server 2012 Essentials server. I initially had purchase a certificate from the web hosting company - it seemed to work for a while but then quit working. I tried various things to fix it and could not get it working. So, then I re-ran the wizard on the server, releasing the domain, and setting up a personalized domain provided by Microsoft... mydomain.remotewebaccess.com... I ran the repair in the wizard as I was told to do... it complete successfully... I was able to access the server remotely at mydomain.remotewebaccess.com with no issues. A day or so later it is broken again - the browser tells me that the certificate is not valid. I think that the server is somehow reverting to an incorrect security cert.
So, I am almost certain something is wrong with the certificate that RWA is linking to (although not when I first set it up) - not sure why it works and then is breaking. I need some help trouble-shooting this please. Thank you in advance for help with this!
Note: I began to setup DirectAccess and may have messed something up? not sure?... I think all I did was install the Remote Access Management Tools though... did not go much further when I realized that this was not something I needed.
