  • OWA and ActiveSync - EX2003 Push Email

    This is my scenario: I'm trying to get Activesync and OWA to work.
    AD,Exchange 2003 SP2: My AD name is domain.local

    I've got a registerd SSL Certificate for owa.domain.co.uk and one for www.domain.co.uk I've also created Self SSL for domain.local

    ISA 2006: I've tried my self SSL domain.local
    On Exchange I've tried owa.domain.co.uk

    Please can you explain what SSL Certs I need and where they should be used.

    On our main www site is www.domain.co.uk I've created a subdomain called owa = owa.domain.co.uk which points to our Public IP Address, is this the correct way? which goes through ISA 2006 etc..

    The mobile 5 device is a HTC Tytn, In the Server config, must it point to domain.local or owa.domain.oc.uk, this is be used externally.

    I've expported the SSL from IIS to the device and and I get a 80072f0d error

    If I type in https://owa.domain.co.uk from IE on a PC I'm prompted to enter a ISA 2006 login credentialsa and then displays
    Error Code: 500 Internal Server Error. The target principal name is incorrect. (-2146893022)

    Could you also explain what public names and Paths I should be using?

    Thanks

    You need an SSL certificate in the same name as you are connecting to the server with - so owa.domain.com and that certificate needs to be trusted.

    A home grown certificate will not be trusted.

    I am not a fan of home grown certificates, not when you can purchased a trusted certificate for between $60 and $20 (depending where you look).

    The common test is to try OMA...

    https://host.domain.com/oma

    If that generates a certificate prompt the EAS will fail.

      Thanks.

      I've got a Equifax Certificate for owa.domain.co.uk. When I type in https://owa.domain.co.uk/exchange I'm prompted to login into OWA, I'm getting the secure Lock but when I log in it get "Error Code: 500 Internal Server Error. The target principal name is incorrect. (-2146893022) "

      I've concluded that it must be my ISA2006 config. If I bypass ISA everything works fine. On my ISA I've tried my owa.domain.co.uk SSL and my SELF, both give me the same error. Which Certificate should i be using, alot of sites say, use the Self Cert from ISA to OWA?

        I don't tend to have much to do with ISA servers.
        However from what I recall there are two ways that they can work.
        1. The ISA server has the SSL certificate and Exchange is configured for SSL offloading.
        2. The Exchange server has the SSL certificate

        My personal preference is to use the second option.

        How you change it though I cannot help with. You could take a look at isaserver.org - that is most likely to have guidance on using SSL with ISA.
