Hello, I'm trying to get a step by step instruction to modify my Exchange 2013 server to correct invalid internal url's to eliminate the .local so outlook will not report an error on the certificate name and also adjust autodiscovery to correctly automatically populate ios and android mobile device once email and password is entered.  I have added a wild card SSL *.filotec.com.

Server Name:        filo-exch00
Internal FQDN:     https://filo-exch00.filo-tec.local
External FQDN     https://exchange.filotec.com
SSL Certificate      *.filotec.com
Server Type:         Windows Server 2012 Std & Exchange 2013 Std CU6

Right now after I removed my old certificate and installed the new certificate, outlook gives me the red X when connecting (The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name on the site).  would like to know what command lines to type in the EMC to correct this issue and eliminate the .local.

Brilliant and easy, thank you for the link!  The only thing I would add is since it is a wild card SSL it was recommended to add the following.

Update your EXPR setting
Set-OutlookProvider EXPR -CertPrincipalName msstd:*.filotec.com

Update your EXCH setting
Set-OutlookProvider EXCH -CertPrincipalName msstd:*.filotec.com

Now for the very last part.  Is there a way to get IOS and Android mobile devices to self populate during AutoDiscovery?  Or must we always have it fail and enter server name, domain name manually?

Autodiscover is down the device, and that is very hit and miss.
I tell clients that they should presume Autodiscover for mobile devices will fail and have manual instructions ready.

I don't use wildcard certificates in any deployments I do, hence the lack of instructions for them. They are also not recommended with Exchange as you can get some odd results with some mobile devices.
