  • Hub Transport questions

    Hi,

    If you have 2 Hub Transport servers but the only send connector you have only has 1 of the HT's specified, how does mail get routed if the HT not specified in the send connector picks up a mail that is destined for delivery via the send connector?

    Does it just pass it to the HT which is specified or do all HT's need to specfied as a source server for the send connector?

    Hope that makes sense...

    The message will be passed to the server listed in the Send Connector for delivery. If the server isn't listed then it will not be used, and the server is only processing internal email.

      Ah, i see.

      Is there any impact installing a new HT into a live environment and is it possible to install the SSL certificate from the existing HT or do i need to purchase a new one?

        Impact, no, except Exchange will probably start to use it.
        Certificates - while you could move them, they will not have the server's real name in them which is required. Therefore you could only move them if your certificate supplier allows more names to be added so that you can add the name of that server.

          Re: Hub Transport questions

          i'm confused now.
          I've just spoken to Verisign who have told me that all i need to do is export the cert and then import it back onto the new server. We then have to pay a fee to them to allow us to use the cert on the new server.

          When i look at the cert in exchange, i have 2 subject sections:

          Subject : CN=GBMANEXCAS (this is the original HT server name)
          Subject : CN=webmail.ourdomain.com, OU="Member, VeriSign Trust
          etwork", OU=Authenticated by VeriSign, OU=Terms of use at
          www.verisign.co.uk/rpa (c)05, OU=HLI IT, O=HL Interactive
          LLP, L=Manchester, S=Greater Manchester, C=GB

          When we talk about SAN's, are talking about the second subject from above? Also, if i imported the original cert onto the new server, would it even work given it's name isn't mentioned in the cert?

            If the server's name isn't in the certificate then the SAN/UC certificate is effectively useless.
            You need a certificate with the server's real name in it.

              Thanks for your responses, Sembee.

              I'm purchasing a new UC cert from GoDaddy.
