SSL Enabling OWA 2003 using your own Certificate Authority Part 2


Getting the Pending Request accepted by our Certificate Authority

Now that we have a pending Certificate Request, we need to have it accepted by our CA, which is done the following way:

Note: In order to access the Certsvr virtual folder, you may be prompted to enter a valid username/password, if this is the case use the Administrator account. When you have been validated the Windows 2003 Server will most probably block the content of the CertSrv virtual folder, which means you wil have to add it to your trusted sites in order to continue.

Under Advanced Certificate Request click Submit a certificate request by using a base-64-encoded CMC or PKCS #10 file, or submit a renewal request by using a base-64-encoded PKCS #7 file

Now we need to insert the content of the certreq.txt file we created earlier, you can do this by clicking the Browse for a file to insert or by opening the certreq.txt file in notepad, then copy/paste the content as shown in the screen below, then click Submit >

Enabling SSL on the Default Website

We have now appended the Certificate to our Default Website, but before the data transmitted between the clients and the server is encrypted, we need to click the Edit… button under Secure Communications.
Here we should put a checkmark in Require Secure Channel (SSL) and Require 128-bit encryption just like below:

Now click OK

Appending the Certificate to the Default Website

Okay it’s time to append the approved Certificate to our Default Website, to accomplish this we need to do the following:

  • Click Start > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
  • Expand Websites > Right-click Default Website then select Properties
  • Now select the Directory Securitytab
  • Under Secure Communications click Server Certificate… > then Next
