Sonicwall local DNS for ldap authentication

I am trying to configure Sonicwall 2040 to authenticate with active directory ( for VPN users) . everything is fine if I don't use SSL.

I created the certificate (using steps in Sonicwall admin guide) ; the problem is that the certificate is issued to domain controller FQDN name. however Sonicwall cannot ping that name. If I set server's IP address ; then it rejects the certificate.

If I use IP and I disbale the certificate ; it works fine.

Is there any place that I can set one internal DNS for Sonicwall ? like myserver 10.0.1.100

Sonicwall DNS entries are all external , I don't want to mess with that setting ..

are you running the enhanced OS on your sonicwall?  i'm not sure the exact steps you are using.  review this KB for an enhanced OS and see if it helps answer your questions.

Yes , It's enhanced . the only issue is that Sonicwall cannot resolve my server's DNS name.
