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.
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.
