|If the activation of the Web Components Server fails with error [0x8007052E] Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password, this may be because the Active Directory domain controllers have not yet fully replicated the new service accounts. Wait for the domain controllers to synchronize (or manually initiate synchronization), and then repeat this procedure in order to re-run the Activate Web Components Server wizard.|
Request and Install SSL Certificate
Procedure W08-DWHO.21: To request and install SSL certificate
Follow the steps in Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB 298805 How to enable SSL for all customers who interact with your Web site in Internet Information Services in order to request and install an SSL certificate that will be used for the Web Components. For the purposes of this reference architecture, the common name for this certificate should be web.consolidatedmessenger.com
Bind the new SSL certificate to the Default Website on OCSPOOLWEB01.
|Be sure to mark the SSL certificate as exportable. You will need a copy of this certificate when you create your firewall web publishing rule ('reverse proxy') in order to publish the Address Book web components to the Internet.|
