"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You would make it autodiscover.mydomain.com as you have stated above. This needs to be part of your SAN names on the certificate for mail.domain.com. So basically all you need to add is the following...
- mail.domain.com
- autodiscover.domain.com

Once you have done this you need to install the cert on the First CAS server where you generated the CSR. Once you have done that you need to export the cert with the private key and import it on the other CAS servers.

You will also need to enable the certificate and the services using the following command...
Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint <xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>  -services "pop,imap,smtp,iis"

It will prompt you to confirm this. You will need to run this command on all CAS servers where you import the certificate. You will then want to remove the old cert using the following command.

Remove-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint <xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
