  • As long as your Verisign certificate is configured correctly and meets the minimum requirements then it will work for CWA as it's basically an just IIS site using a certificate for standard SSL communications.

    What about the front end server, because it need subject alternative names???  sorry for confusing message

  • The certificate for a Front-End server should typically contain the server's FQDN as the Subject Name and then the sip domain names in the SAN field.

  • I did a complete install in the past using only an Entrust UC cert. You may get some validation errors because OCS responds with the server name from MWI not the requested host but if all done properly it should not prevent OCS from working.
