SSL Cert Popup during Exchange Migration

We are migrating a customer currently using exchange on a server that acts as their DC and houses AD.  We are migrating them to a hosted exchange system provided by us.  The problem is when we configure the new profiles in outlook with the new mailboxes, we get an autodiscover certificate popup that appears to come from the old server.  
"The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site."
The issued to and by state the old server name.

The certificate popup includes a .local SAN


Is there a way to alleviate this or turn of the cert within the eac on the old server to stop it from happening?

Hello,

since the client has Exchange in-house, as soon as you configure Outlook, it is going to pull autodiscover information via SCP (from AD), and that is going to point to old exchange.

You can check autodiscover configuration via:
Get-ClientAccessService | Select AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri
or
Get-ClientAccessServer | Select AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri

It is going to be something like https://OLDservername.domain.com/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml

You could disable it via:
(For Exchange 2016)
[PS] C:\> Set-ClientAccessService -Identity “OLDservername” -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri $NULL
or
(For Exchange 2010-2013)
[PS] C:\> Set-ClientAccessServer -Identity “OLDservername” -AutoDiscoverServiceInternalUri $NULL

OLDservername is NetBIOS, not FQDN.

Did you reconfigure DNS so that autodiscover.domain.name is pointing to new Exchange?
Hosted Exchange is what version? Are you manually creating profiles or is autodiscover doing this for you?

PS: Is this happening both for internal and external clients?

Regards,
Ivan.

I tried to disable the autodiscover service earlier by using that command you gave me and it didnt appear to do anything.  I did this on the old in house server.

However I did just find an autodiscover entry in the internal dns on the old server.  Could that be doing it?

Hi,

if autodiscover servis is disabled (this will be queried first), then if you have DNS record for autodiscover it will be queried after. So, yes, that is going to point your clients to old server.

If you run command below, it should return empty value. That will be sign that service is disabled, and that DNS record is pointing clients to old server.
Get-ClientAccessService | Select AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri
 or
 Get-ClientAccessServer | Select AutodiscoverServiceInternalUri

Regards,
Ivan.

Yes, that means it is disabled.
Reconfigure DNS to point to your new Exchange.

If you remove it, then Outlook 2016 will not be able to connect, as it is using autodiscover.

Thank you for the help Ivan, It did end up being the internal DNS on the old server that was the issue.  Changed the autodiscover values in there and the problem went away!  

Thanks!
