This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to install a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 computer that has the Client Access server role installed.

Before You Begin

To perform the following procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange View-Only Administrator role and membership in the local Administrators group.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations

To perform this procedure, you must have previously requested a certificate from a certification authority by using the New-ExchangeCertificate cmdlet, and then transmitted that request to a certification authority. The certification authority must have returned a certificate file.


To use the Exchange Management Shell to install an SSL certificate on a Client Access server

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Import-ExchangeCertificate -Path c:\certificates\filename.cer -friendlyname "Contoso CAS01"

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Import-ExchangeCertificate.
