    Two questions or thoughts I need help with please.
    I am held up on step 7 and 8 in the ARRConfig process located here:


    ARRConfig config –cert “c:\temp\certificate.pfx” –hostnames “exchange.domain.com”–targetserver “exchange”
    Or is it .local because I have a .local domain? (exchange.domain.local is my exchange server)
    ARRConfig config –cert “c:\temp\certificate.pfx” –hostnames “exchange.domain.local”–targetserver “exchange”

    I am trying to get the Exchange 2016 and Essentials 2016 integrated with 1 internet connection
    Virtual directories running on exchange will hit exchange.domain.com
    Essentials services will hit office.domain.com


    The host names that you provide must be contained in the SSL certificate that you purchased for Exchange Server.
    If you have multiple host names, use a comma (,) to separate them.

    I created a self signed cert in Exchange with the following SAN's
    DNS Name=exchange.domain.com
    DNS Name=exchange
    DNS Name=AutoDiscover.domain.local
    DNS Name=AutoDiscover.domain.com
    DNS Name=DOMAIN.local
    DNS Name=domain.com
    DNS Name=exchange.domain.local

    Does the second line mean I have to match the host names (all of the SAN's)in my cert with the Powershell command?
    ARRConfig config –cert “c:\temp\certificate.pfx” –hostnames "exchange.domain.local”,"exchange","AutoDiscover.domain.local","AutoDiscover.domain.com", "DOMAIN.local", "domain.com", "exchange.domain.local"–targetserver “exchange”

    I appreciate the assistance!
    Thank You,

    Hi staplebench,

    I think it means that if you want to configure ARR for multiple binding host header, then you could add these host name to your command line. Otherwise, I think you just need one binding host header.

    Besides, if you want to use this command line, remember to run as administrator and run the command >cd C:\Windows\System32\Essentials
     to target the path before using your command line.

    Best Regards,
