Ongoing issues with SBS 2008 and Outlook 2007
Can anyone out there please link me complete instructions to create and use a certificate for Exchange 2007 under SBS 2008? All the help I've found seems to apply to running Exchange 2007 under SBS 2003 or non-SBS 2008.I have created a certificate for my server following some extremely vague KB article instructions. The trouble is that the certificate generator webservice doesn't ask for any arguments. So I've made a certificate for who-knows-what, and I don't know what to do with the certificate file.I'm also unable to find where I view the directory security and certificates for the Autodiscover service using the IIS Manager console. PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT SBS 2003, and the instructions cannot be used due to the completely different interfaces under SBS 2008.I'm getting the well known 'incorrect name' certificate warning under Outlook 2007 when connecting. These are domain connected clients connecting internally. Everything I've read seems to imply that the certificate should not be required to begin with. I've run through the KBs and played with the suggested settings, but I still have the issue that the certificate is incorrect.Thanks for any help.

Replying to my own thread, but I have found and managed to work through are very sparse instructions: it took me about an hour to work through this because of things that weren't mentioned.I played with this as intended for some time, finding that setting CN to e.g. would make one thing work and break another. (It may still work for you if you haven't dicked around with your settings as much as me*).Then I tried making a certificate with one entry: CN=WINSERVER (the name of my server). Just the server name all by itself.Believe it or not, it worked. I have yet to verify this on the clients, but Test-OutlookWebServices FINALLY connects without warning me about the certificate.* I have set ALL my discovery URLs to https://winserver/etc Aaron Oxford - Innovative Computer Solutions - VioLet Composer (
