|Issue||Activating a wildcard certificate fails with the following error: |
The certificate subject name does not match the hostname of this solution. Select another certificate to activate.
|Resolution||RSA Authentication Manager does not allow activating wildcard certificates, which are public key certificates that can be used with multiple subdomains of a domain. It is a requirement that the certificate must be issued with exact hostname of the Authentication Manager server.|
Per page 176 of the RSA Authentication Manager 8.1 Administrator Guide:
To activate a secure socket layer (SSL) certificate, the certificate must have a subject field that contains a common name (CN) with a value equal to the fully qualified hostname (FQHN) of the instance you are administering.
