Exchange 2013, how do i assign a certificate to the SMTP site?
We have an on-prem exchange 2013 environment and we are seeing a gazillion schannel errors in the log. When I look it up, the info online says i can safely ignore it and that to make the error stop, I can assign a certificate to the SMTP site.
Well, how exactly do I do that in Exchange 2013?
Our CAS servers are split off from our mailbox servers.
We have certificates on our servers for OWA, etc. So, I'm interested in making this event 36871 go away.
This behavior is caused by the SMTP service processing an incoming EHLO command if no certificate is assigned to an SMTP site. This message is logged twice, once when the SMTP service starts, and once when the first EHLO command is received.
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) controls how email is transported and then delivered across the Internet to the destination server. The SMTP EHLO command enables the server to identify its support for Extended Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (ESMTP) commands.
This is an erroneous Event log entry. You can safely ignore this message. To prevent this Event log entry, you must assign a certificate to the SMTP site.
