HPSIM Signing CSR with SAN

Hi All,


I am wanting to sign my HPSIM certificate against our internal CA. The problem I have is that whenever I create the CSR request in HPSIM, it omits the Subject Alternate Name (SAN) information that I had filled out earlier as part of the certificate.


Setting the SAN is somewhat important for me as I am using Windows Server and I currently use a DNS CNAME of to point to the machine name ( SITEPR-SERVERTYPE), and would prefer not to have to rename to server to 'HPSIM' just to get a certificate that will match the hostname. I imagine any hostname/dns mismatches will also cause HPSIM to do interesting things.


Does anyone have experience with signing the HPSIM certificate with a CA with the ability to use certificates SANs?


Re: HPSIM Signing CSR with SAN

Did you get anywhere with this? I've successfully created an SSL certificate with a SAN but HPSIM refuses to honor it, returning the following error:

The hostname in the website’s security certificate differs from the website you are trying to visit.

I've tried all sorts of combinations of certificate generation but have been unable to get it to work. If I remove the SAN everything is OK.
