Exchange 2010 Update of SSL Cert


I have just updated the SSL cert on the server as it was due to expire, Issue i have is that at the new rule about local domain on the cert will not be permitted from November i didnt include that on the cert, I have made all the needed changes that i can think of on Exchange server to show the internal now the same as the external and have arranged the DNS to reflect that and is works.

Phones etc and OWA are working fine from outside but from inside im getting a cert error as it is still looking for the .local address on the cert which isnt there, Exchange server has been rebooted twice etc.

Has anyone has the same issue and can let me know how they resolved.

You could use a self signed cert for the local name.

What service would you need to assign to that on exchange ?

Wouldn't that then conflict with the external ?

Why are your phones looking for the .local stopping this will resolve it.

If you have lets say an external DNS record for OWA.COMPANYNAME.COM and an internal FORWARD LOOKUP ZONE for OWA.COMPANYNAME.COM and specify this in the smart phone setup this will work around the issue without making any major changes. Point this zone straight at the exchange server.

Phones are working perfect, its the Exchange 2007 / 2010 email clients on desktops.

Yes, I have a self signed cert with SMTP assigned onto that, and a wildcard cert with IIS assigned onto it and I don't have this issue. Check this link out helped me with a similar issue.

Outlook on startup is looking for and its probably resolving externally and not internally causing the error. This link cleared this issue up for me before.
