    HTTPS CSR File Creation Problem - URL vs FQDN

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to configure https on a consolidating appliance but am running into an issue that I need help with.

       

      Our appliance is reachable to the end user via a URL, let us call it:

           ADDM.company.com.

       

      However, when creating the CSR file, I need to use the FQDN:

          server1.subdomain.company.com

       

      I get a CER file from my administrator, load it  with success via the UI.

       

      However, when I try to log onto the appliance UI via the URL, I receive a warning by my browser stating the cert if bad. If I type the FQDN in my browser, the certificate is valid.

       

      My cert admin has told me I need to generate a CSR with SAN attributes, and that is why I am writing.

       

      How do I do that, is the a command line function and not UI?

       

      Thanks,

      Charles
