Exchange 2013 SSL Certificates on Multiple CAS and Mailbox Servers

I have 5 Exchange 2013 servers.   2 CAS servers and 3 Mailbox servers installed as DAG.  The CAS servers have my UCC certificate.  One of the CAS servers has the Microsoft Exchange Server Auth certificate.  I am receiving SSL certificate errors from my Mailbox servers stating they cannot find the certificate containing the public name.   This certificate is installed on the CAS servers, but the mailbox servers are sending email to the internet.  I am also receiving errors the the Microsoft Exchange Server Auth certificate cannot be found on all servers but the CAS server it is installed on.  

I am having trouble finding any information on the correct settings in this configuration.  

I am wondering if I should export the Microsoft Exchange Server Auth certificate and the UCC certificate and import the certificate into all of the servers.

Does anyone have a configuration like this that they could confirm the SSL requirements on the mailbox and CAS servers?  What I have found says the mailbox servers SSL is all self-signed and should not need to be altered, but that is not what I am seeing.

Certs are pretty strightforward for the most part. Whatever you do "do not remove or modify the self-signed certs" on either the CAS or Mailbox Servers.

- Simply import your cert on all of your CAS servers
- Run the Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint <xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> -Services "pop,imap,smtp,iis" (do this for both servers)
- Ensure that all of your URL's for your virtual directories are correct
- Make sure that your SAN cert has mail.domain.com and autodiscover.domain.com
- Make sure that you have the appropriate External DNS for A record mail.domain.com and CNAME record for autodiscover.domain.com

Thanks for the reply Will.  I have the UCC cert imported to both CAS server, but I am getting the errors on the Mailbox servers.  I guess I can just import the UCC and the Microsoft Exchange Server Auth certificate to all servers to clear the errors.

Not really the answer I was looking for, but in the end I just exported and imported to the CAS servers.
