The certificate received from the remote server does not contain the expected name. It is therefore not possible to determine whether we are connecting to the correct server. The server name we were expecting is <server name>. The SSL connection request has failed. The attached data contains the server certificate.

What is Schannel?
ME2282241 indicates that this problem occurs because of an error in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008. The LDAP client stores the node's canonical name into the alias field. This problem occurs if the node alias and the node name are different. See the article for information about a hotfix available.
When we set up our Outlook Web Access and tried to go into public folders on the Exchange system manager, we received an error about SSL certificate being invalid. The Certificate published to the public was for the server's public FQDN (different to the "real" name). When the SSL IIS was set up, the required secure channel tick box was ticked and applied to all child nodes. Unticking this box and letting this new setting filter down solved both problems.
ME324345 only applies to Windows 2000. After following the instructions in ME324345 without success on a Windows 2003 box, I found that to get rid of the error I had to first remove the certificate from the default website completely and then add it again. This cured the problem.
