  • Do I need an ssl cert for owa for second exchange box?

    We have two exchange boxes, A and B. A is set as the master and B is set as the secondary. Outlook email is working fine for both servers. For all users that have their mailbox setup on server A, they are able to access their email just fine from owa both internally and externally. For users that have their mailbox residing on server B, they are not able to access owa from anywhere. When server b users go to https://serverA/exchange, they get page cannot be displayed. However, when they are internal and they access http://serverB/exchange (not https), then owa comes up just fine, but I want them to use ssl. I compared the two and noticed that there is no ssl cert configured for server B but there is one for server A.

    1. For the secondary owa server, do I need to add an ssl cert?
    2. If so, do I create a new one or do I export the one from server A and import it into server B?
    Thanks!

      You will need to have a unique URL and SSL certificate for the second server. The users will need to know their mailbox is on that server.

      Exchange will NOT redirect the users to the correct server as it will redirect to the internal name, not the external name.

      The only way to have a single point of entry for both servers is with a third server configured as a frontend server.
