Exchange UC SSL cert is up for renewal soon and I could do with some help please! I'm a tad thick!
A while ago, I changed our primary email domain to mail.newdomain.org and accept emails for all mailboxes on both old and new email domains; secondary email domain is mail.old-domain.org. The local domain name is unchanged
There is a (sembee article
) redirect on requests to https://mail.old-domain.org
that adds the /OWA to the URL and sends usres to the https://mail.old-domain.org/owa
website to enter their credentials after using localdomainname\username in basic Auth. Local email users use Windows Auth
Current UC SSL cert looks like this:
Obviously, users have been getting certificate errors when using the URL https://mail.newdomain.org
which isnt ideal hence the need for this change.
After reading (Sembee article
) it appears I no longer need some names specified in the certificate, the server internal FQDN (exchange7.localdomain.loc
al) and the local server name (exchange7). I also want people to just connect using mail.newdomain.org so no longer require the mail.old-domain.org. My new cert would look like this:
Sorry for the long-winded drivel, but hoped to include as much as possible for your consideration!
so my questions are:
1) Do i need to renew or create a new godaddy cert? (starfield)
2) What is the best way to accomplish the above?
3) Any improvements you could suggest to make the user email experience better? :)
I'd appreciate any help, and as mentioned, i'm a tad thick so would appreciate simple answers :)
all the best
