So I found out about an hour ago that our SSL certificate has expired.
So the VLE and Exchange 2007 server are now only available locally and not externally, which is no good when the staff are not in school.
Having not set this up before im struggling a bit in what goes where etc.
Ive just brought a 3 year Standard UCC SSL 5 slot certificate from GoDaddy and am trying to follow the guide here Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) - Exchange Server 2007 | Go Daddy Help | GoDaddy Support but im stuck at step 4. Specifically
our FQDN is domain.schoolname.bham.sch.uk so is this what I put in for the FQDN even though our website is just schoolname.bham.sch.uk ?
Then I get to this point:
so, our VLE and OWA both use https://portal.schoolname.bham.sch.uk is this all I need to add there?Code:-domainname — The comma-separated list of additional domains that are included in your certificate and referred to as Subject Alternative Names (SANs). Deciding what SANs to use depends on the services you are running. You need to know how your server is configured to properly secure everything. But, depending on your configuration, consider adding the following SANs:
- The external name that people use to send and receive mail: mail.yourdomain.com. Where yourdomain.com is your domain.
- The Fully Qualified Domain Name: yourdomain.com. Where yourdomain.com is your domain.
- The local name: yourdomain.local. Where yourdomain.local Is the local name of your server.
- The name for your Autodiscover services (Autodisover automatically configures profile settings to work with mobile phones and other services): autodiscover.yourdomain.com. Where yourdomain.com is your domain name.
- To use Outlook Web Access internally, you need to include two NetBIOS names: owa1.yourdomain.local and owa1. Where yourdomain.local is the NetBIOS name of the server.
Whats this autodiscover.yourdomain.com? So I need to specify that and how do I tell what mine is?
Any help with this would be appreciated as Ive only recently taken over and had no idea this was set to expire
