SSL Installation: Microsoft Office Communications 2007

The following instructions will guide you through the SSL installation process on Office Communications 2007.

  1. Make sure you have all the following files saved before proceeding:

    • Your Server Certificate - This is the certificate you received from the CA for your domain. You may have been sent this via email. If not, you can download it by visiting your Account Dashboard and clicking on your order.
    • Intermediate Certificates - These files allow the devices connecting to your server to identify the issuing CA. There may be more than one of these certificates. If you got your certificate in a ZIP folder, it should also contain the Intermediate certificate(s), which is sometimes referred to as a CA Bundle. If not, download the appropriate CA Bundle for your certificate.
    • Your Private Key - This file should be on your server, or in your possession if you generated your CSR from a free generator tool. On certain platforms, such as Microsoft IIS, the private key is not immediately visible to you but the server is keeping track of it.
  2. Click Start, then select Programs, then Administrative Tools, and finally Office Communications Server 2007.
  3. Expand the Enterprise Edition Server snap-in.
  4. Right-click the correct Server and select Certificates.
  5. Select Next, then choose Process the pending request and install the certificate.
  6. Find your SSL Certificate and hit next.

Congratulations! You've successfully installed your SSL certificate! To check your work, visit the website in your browser at https://yourdomain.tld and view the certificate/site information to see if HTTPS/SSL is working properly. Remember, you may need to restart your server for changes to take effect.
