OWA SSL on an Exchange 2003 cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm doing an Exchange migration from 2000 to 2003 in an active/passive cluster.  OWA works fine on 2000 by going to http://exchange.domain.com and getting redirected to https://exchange.domain.com

    What I can't get working or understand is when I go to http://exchange.domain.com and enter credentials for a mailbox on the 2003 cluster I get redirected to https://exchangeclustername.domain.com and get a certificate mismatch because the SSL that is on both Exchange 2000 and the Exchange 2003 is https://exchange.domain.com

    I have the SSL installed on the Default Website on both nodes in the cluster but not sure how to get it working.  http://exchangeclustername.domani.com does work.

  • The correct Exchange configuration for a clustered setup is to have Front-End OWA servers.

  • I agree with Luke. If we have cluster configured,then we have to configure OWA redirection on Front-end Exchange Server. You can check the steps in article below:
