Assigning SSL Certificate for OWA Exchange 2010 Part 1

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 6:32 pm

Goal: Assign SSL certificate for company OWA Exchange 2010 server

Environment:

image

  • Log on to Exchange 2010 via web browser bring up warning as shown below…..

image

Log on to Exchange 2010 Management Console

Server Configuration

  • Right Click on the CAS server
  • New Exchange Certificate

image

 

  • Enter Friendly name for the certificate ( anything you want this is for you to see and remember what this cert is for)

image

  • In this example we have one domain so wildcard certificate wont apply to here

image

  • Click next

Now Click the arrows to fill out the required information, this part is real nice easy to fallow we will click on Client Access server

image

Let me explain this a little bit so there is no confusion

The internal Domain Name space I use is SMTP25.local and server name is HTS01.SMTP25.Local

image

image

So my users internally can open their browser and type Http://mail.smtp25.local they will get to my exchange server and here how DNS A record internally look like

  • On the local Domain Controller / DNS
  • Open DNS Console
  • New Host A record

 

image

  • And type the IP address of the CAS server.

 

image

image

  • Pretty simple internal DNS query will be perform by client Browser will go to Internal DNS server and since we do have A record pointing to CAS server, Client browser will be directed to CAS server.

image

 

  • go back to Certificate  wizard

image

  • I will Click next

 

image

 

  • Here is important, I have to pay attention to Common name, The common name is what clients will put into their browser when they are on outside of your network ( Internet) and this record must exist on the Public DNS server.

  • I created folder on C and give name to Certificate to make me remember what it is in the future

image

image

image

  • Now let’s get the certificate from C drive make right click open, open with notepad

image

 

image

  • This is end of part one , please read part two to complete the cert process

best,
