Office 365 Exchange Online Migration from Exchange 2007 Requires SSL Certificate But Local Domain is .com suffix we do not own
Posted on 2016-07-18
Hey guys and gals I'll try to make this as concise and coherent as possible.
We currently have an Exchange 2007 box in a 2008 r2 active directory domain. We're wanting to migrate to Office 365 with Exchange online. Reviewing the documentation it looks like they want "exchange anywhere" enabled to migrate our exchange database which requires a valid SSL certificate. My problem is that when the local domain was created it was created as "City.Contoso.com". The issue is we do not own Contoso.com and the cost to acquire that domain is incredibly out of budget. So we've been just self-signing but it's now hit a breaking point. How do I possibly get a certificate to work with this exchange server to enable the services required to migrate this EDB?
Thank you so much for your help!
