Certification error

We just installed a brand new Exchange 2013 server. When we configure Outlook 2010 we get a ceritification error:

- The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site

The Outlook client is being added while it's internally into the domain.

It's not a self signed certificate, it's a brand new comodo one.

For all I know, everything in exchange is set right in the internal and external server settings. Autodiscover is configured and can be found with nslookup. Exchange is up to date with the latest updates.

Did I miss anything?

Based on that message above, this is due to your virtual directories not set correctly using the FQDN that is on the certificate.

Make sure that you have your correct URL's for internal and external.

Also run the Test Email Auto Configuration from Outlook and make sure that the Outlook client is getting the correct URL's from the Exchange server.

I  check the virtual directories again, I need to set the internal and external to mail.company.com, right? I have done that. However I just noticed that Autodiscover is set to the local servername and I can not change that. Is that normal? I'll run the outlook check.

Your autodiscover should also point to autodiscover.domain.com. You also need to have split DNS setup and well making sure that you have an A (host) recrod for mail.domain.com and a cname record for autodiscover.domain.com.

Check out my HowTo for this. Also make suer that your have properly enabled the new certificate and assiged it correct services.

That did the trick, thanks!

I added the autodiscover with the command line and I had autodiscover added as an A reccord instead of a CNAME.
