How to use single certificate for multiple exchange server

Hi
I have a test environment, one server is running exchange 2013 Cu8 and other is exchange 2016.
I generate the IIS self certificate and installed onto the exchange 2013.
is same certificate can export from the exchange 2013 and import to the exchange 2016 server?
It will work?

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.

No. The server name on the certificate has to match the server name. Also, you will get certificate errors if you use a self signed cert with exchange. You will want to get a certificate from a third party CA like go daddy or network solutions.

Delete it from certificate store.
Start -> Run -> mmc.exe
Click File -> "Add/Remove Snap-in"
Select Certificates, click Add
Select "Computer account", click Next.
Select "Local computer", click Finish
Click OK,
Expand "Certificates (Local computer)  --> Personal-->certificates
You can see the certificates on the right side

I strongly recommend to buy a 3rd party certificate as suggested above, It will save time for you.
You can buy as per your budget. Check namecheap.com if your budget is low.

as above the CN has to match the server so I would generate a new self signed cert for each server.

if it is a test environment and if you have an internal CA. Why you need to export and import?
You can issue a new certificate for new Exchange server

I agree with kash. you should NOT try to import a self-cert SSL. just generate a new one on each exchange server and you're good to go.

Self signed certificates are not recommended even for test environments. Use internal CA. once you install and enable certificate on one exchange server, you can then export as pfx file and import on other server. Just enable the certificate and assign services on other server. Works like a charm.
