Multiple OWA URLs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Does anyone know if it is possible to use two separate OWA URLs in exchange 2010?

    We have one exchange server used by two schools. Exchange is used at one site and uses their domain name. The other school logs on using the current URL but would like their own URL to be used.

    I tried creating a CNAME that points to the owa address of the current exchange server and this fails.

    Thanks in advance.

  • It should work. If the new domain name is not included in the Exchange certificate, the users will get a security warning.

    Check it internally first (ex. configure split DNS). When you confirm that it is working as expected, check the firewall configuration, forwarding etc.

  • Hello,

    of course. You should do:

    1. Assign new IP address to your Exchange server
    2. Use command New-OWAVirtualDirectory and use another name for its identity
    3. In IIS manager bind IP address to your virtual directory
    4. configure new virtual directory with needed names
    5. Import certificate to you server, which contains the name

    OR:

    use the same IP for new OVA virtual directory and then the certificate should contain both names.

  • Hi,

    As Zbynek mentioned,you can create a new OWA VD to achieve your goal.

    Here are some articles for your reference:

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks.
