  • Exchange 2013 and new certificate

    I have a problem with installing a certificate.

    The certificate is for OWA, when I renew the one I had I got an error. I removed the certificate and made a new certificate request. When installing the new certificate I still get an error, after trying to install the new certificate that failed I am not able to open Outlook or to open OWA. Normally I use rapidssl but because I am unable to view mails I have tried the a certificate from cacert.

    Hope someone can help me.

    I managed to the certificate part to Work, now I just have an other problem. When I try to open Outlook I get this error:

    Microsoft Outlook can not start. Outlook window can not be opened. Folder set can not be opened. The attempt to log on to Microsoft Exchange Exchange failed.

      Did you request and enable the certificate through Exchange only, or did you use IIS manager? A lot of the problems with SSL on Exchange 2013 come down to the bindings getting screwed up, usually caused by doing SSL work outside of Exchange, or other services on the server. Remote Desktop Gateway for example will completely screw up the bindings causing one of the two web sites to stop.

        All is done through IIS, do to the problems with login to the owa and ecp. Yes the bindings is correct, as far as I can see.

        I have added the certificate to both sites, default site and Exchange Back End.

          That was your problem.
          Don't do it through IIS manager. SSL certificate request response and enabling should be done through ECP.

          Go in to ECP and check what services are using the new SSL certificate.

            That was one of the main problems, because of the problem with the certificate I was unable to log in to the OWA and the ECP sites. Because of the login problems I had to do it through IIS. But the problem is resolved. I used a certificate from CAcert, Applied it through IIS corrected the bindings for the Default site and the Exchange Back End site. After that I was able to login to ECP make a new certificate request from my certificate reseller and receive their conformation mail.
