I have a Windows 2008 server running Exchange 2007. Recently, our GoDaddy SSL Cert (UCC) was due to expire. I went through the process to reconfigure the exchange server to use a FDQN instead of the intranet name so I could renew the SSL Cert. I then renewed the cert, and all was well except for this MSExchangetransport 12014 error in my event logs. It states:
"Microsoft Exchange couldn't find a certificate that contains the domain name <servername>.<domain>.local in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector Default <servername> with a FQDN parameter of <servername>.<domain>.local.
This Exchange server has 4 Receive Connectors, the default, one for regular mail of authenticated users, and to more for specific internal IP Addresses that permit what is basically a mail relay. All 4 connectors show the FQDN as <servername>.<domain>.local.
Since .local is soon to be unsupported in an SSL certificate, we no longer have the intranet name listed in our UCC cert. Therefore, the error is correct.
I thought I could simply change the FQDN in my 4 receive connectors, but the Default connector will not permit it. So I researched and found differing opinions on what, if anything, could be done. Some folks say you CAN'T change the Default, where others say that disabling the Exchange Server Authentication on the Default will then let you change the FQDN.
Surely someone here has run into this and knows the correct course of action.
Thanks in advance for the input.
