I'm trying to create a binding between SP2013 server and Office Web App 2013 server using the below PS Script:

New-SPWOPIBinding -ServerName "OWAServerName"

But I get the below error:

WARNING: The server did not respond. Trying again (attempt 1 of 5).
WARNING: The server did not respond. Trying again (attempt 2 of 5).
WARNING: The server did not respond. Trying again (attempt 3 of 5).

EventViewer displays the below error:

An operation failed because the following certificate has validation errors: Subject Name: CN=, OU=, O=, L=, S=, C= Issuer Name: CN=Symantec Class 3 Secure Server CA - G4, OU=Symantec Trust Network, O=Symantec Corporation, C=US Thumbprint:

Errors:

SSL policy errors have been encountered. Error code '0x2'.

I have uploaded the SSL Binding certificate for the https external URL to Office Web App server and also to the SharePoint 2013 server.

https://ExternalURL/hosting/Discovery/ displays the XML file.

I checked with my network team and they confirmed that they are no firewall restriction between SharePoint server and OWA server.

Can someone help me fix the issue and proceed?

Oops:The below PS Script worked for me.

New-SPWOPIBinding -ServerName "ExternalURL"

ExternalURL - is the external URL used while configuring Office Web App Server.

In all the Microsoft articles,it was mentioned to use the InternalURL/OWA FQDN.Using External URL will cause any problem?
