CauseViewing the SSL certifcate issued to the Authentication Manager does not match the actual Authentication Manager fully-qualified computer name

A new keypair and certificate request for the correct name of the Authentication Manager is required. The certificate request must then be signed by a trusted root that would have imported into the Root Certificate Key Store and Identity Certificate Key Store. The signed certificate should then be imported into the Identity Certificate Key Store and activated.


Please refer to Replacing RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 SP4 Certificates as this covers the steps taken to change the SSL certificates used by the Authentication Manager 7.1 software.


Please contact RSA Customer Support on one of the telephone numbers listed for further assistance if you are still experiencing a technical problem.
