  • Configuring OWA SSL

    Hi there!
    I am running Exchange 2003 SP1 and I've been trying to implement OWA SSL as described in Daniel Petri's article, which can be found here: http://www.petri.com/configure_ssl_on_owa.htm.
    A CA has been installed on my system.

    Here's my problem:
    When using the web server certificate wizard ("IIS Certificate Wizard") I can only choose "Prepare the request now, but send it later", the second - and more interesting choice - "Send the request immediatly to an online CA" is always grayed out. Does anyone know what I need to do to have this choice available to me?
    I haven't figured out how to "send a prepared request later", so it seems to me I am stuck with the second option, which unfortunately is not available to me....
    I'd appreciate any ideas.
    TIA,
    Daniel

    Did you install the CA server as standard CA? If so, you will need to manual request certificate and manual import it:

      I think it was configured as stand-alone root CA. (How can I find out for sure?)
      How do I manually request and import the certificate?
      I am still new to PKI....

        As Yuval said it's probably set up in Stand-Alone mode. Go on with the wizard to get the certificate request, it'll create a text file for you.

        Then go to http://server/certsrv, and request a certificate. Use the advanced request. You will have the option to paste the contents of the file created in step 1.

          Thanks for your help, guys. Works like a charm now, especially in conjunction with forms based authentication.
