What would be the cause of ssl certificate does not have a subject name that matches the specified Federation Service name: foo.bar.com RRS feed

  • Question

  • I went through Active Directory Federation Services Configuration wizard in order to complete Post-Deployment Configuration.

    I obtained proper SSL certificate in a shop where I work from system administrator. He used openssl to generate one.

    When I inspected it, it has following attribute:
    Subject: CN=foo.bar.com

    Issued to: foo.bar.com

    After completing, welcome > connect to AD DS > specify service properties > specify service account > specify database > review options > pre-requiste checks > installation, I got following error.

    "The SSL Certificate specified by thumbprint .... does not have a subject name that matches the specified Federation Service name: foo.bar.com".

    I know Subject has "CN=" prefix but using openssl I don't think you are allowed to remove that prefix. Does anyone know what may have caused this error?
