  • SSL Certificate

    Currently looking to purchase an SSL certificate for a new SBS 2008 install

    Now following on from the information on Sembee's website, I would like to know if there are any additional URLs I will need to specify when I buy it

    • mail.example.com
    • autodiscover.example.com
    • server.example.local
    • server

    As SBS 2008 has remote.domain.com will i need to add this address to the certificate? also does anyone know of anymore URLs I may need to add before I buy one and can I just buy one for all the domains or will I need multiple certificates?

    Thanks

    There is one certificate type called SAN certificate in which you can accomodate all the fqdns, you can check with godaddy.

      Hi Navdeep,

      yes I will be buying a single certificate with multiple entries, however what I am trying to find out is a list of standard URLs that are used in everyday setups, mainly around SBS2008

      Thanks

        Hi,

        If you going to use Outlook anywhere then only for that you need a cert, if you are going to use pop, imap and secure smtp then certificate for them too

        Now here what you need to understand
        If you accessing your OWA as mail.mydomain.com then certificate will have that domain not internal, same goes for Auto Look anywhere.

        Otherwise Exchange 2007 has self signed certs
        use exchage management shell command to see certificates in use and services tied to it.
        get-exchangecertificate
        Thanks & Regards

          For SBS 2008, I would suggest that you follow the wizards. The wizard points you to the same certificate supplier that I do.
          Then use the instructions to configure the DNS records that SBS asks for.
          I am not using my own instructions with SBS deployments - everything is done as SBS wants it. I learnt that lesson the hard way with SBS 2003, and since I do things the SBS way I have had zero problems.

          Simon.
