Windows 2008 requesting local CA certificate with just server name, not fqdn
Posted on 2011-09-22
All of our servers get certificates when we bring them on our AD domain, but they get the fully qualified domain name such as server1.doman.com. We have some applications that require us to have the certificate just read the name of the server, such as just "server1". Whenever I go into the certificate snap-in and request a certificate, it always assigns it to the fqdn. How can I get the certificate made out to just the server name only and NOT fqdn?
