  • Exchange 2010 Migration (SSL Question in Co-Existence Mode with 2003)

    Hi All,



    My current exchange 2003 server does not have SSL setup for OWA or Activesync ( i know, not good). There are quite a few users with iphones, droids, etc;

    I am planning an exchange 2010 install to coexist with 2003 server.

    I know once I put an SSL or SAN certificate into the 2010 server, users with activesync and no ssl will stop receiving email until their phones are reconfigured for SSL. I am looking to avoid this confusion as the migration will happen over the weekend and people would freak out if they didnt have email to their phones ..

    My question: Is there any way to turn off the SSL requirement on the exchange 2010 box and still have it co-exist with exchange 2003?

    No. While you can try and force it, ultimately it isn't going to work correctly.
    You are now suffering the consequences of not deploying Exchange 2003 correctly. That may be blunt, but for the cost of an SSL certificate ($30 or less) you have caused yourself more work.

    Depending on when the migration is taking place, you may want to consider getting an SSL certificate in place and telling users to reconfigure in advance, to try and avoid the mass headaches when you go live.

    Simon.
