Enabling a New Certificate on a Server:


1. In order to get your Certificate Thumbprint, you must Run the following Get-ExchangeCertificate Command. Any information that pertains to your individual domain or company must be changed to match your company. In this example, it will be generically stated as your domain. The Get-ExchangeCertificate Command to run is: [PS] C:\> Get-ExchangeCertificate -DomainName your.domain.name Under the Thumbprint section type: 136849A2963709E2753214BED76C7D6DB1E4A270 and under the Subject section type: CN=your.domain.name

2. Next, Run the Enable-ExchangeCertificate Command to allow your certificate to be used with Exchange. The following is the command to be ran: Enable-ExchangeCertificate -ThumbPrint [paste_your_thumbprint] -Services "SMTP, IMAP, POP, IIS"

3. Now you will be able to re-run the Get-ExchangeCertificate command in order to determine that the installation was completed successfully.

4. At this point you will be able to test your certificate by connecting to the Server using IE, ActiveSync, or Outlook. In some older ISA formats you may need to restart your server before the installation will be completed.
