Microsoft PIC provisioning / certificate questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Back when Microsoft provided PIC messaging access to Yahoo, AOL and MSN we had to.....
    - provision our edge server with Microsoft
    - the certificate on the access edge needed to have the common name matching the name registered with Microsoft

    Its time for me to get a new certificatge on my access edge.
    Now that Microsoft no longer provide PIC
    - do we actually still need to have our edge registered with Microsoft?
    - What does this provisioning provide fo us now?
    - Since we are already registered, does NOT de-provisioning the edge matter?
    - what would be the ramnifications if I removed my edge server from PIC provisioning on the MS site?
    - If we leave the provisioning in place, does my certificate common name still need to match the registered name?

    Just a few odd ball questions.
