Certificate SAN Mismatch

Last Modified: 2016-10-25
I have a CAS array setup with a Netscaler for loadbalancing and the 2 CAS servers (exchange 2010 RU5) are configured for SSL Offloading. This is still in a testing phase but everything seems to be working well. However when I run the Best Practices Analyzer I get the error that "The subject alternative name (SAN) of SSL certificate for https://mail.domain.com/Autodiscover....(I get an entry for each virtual directory) does not appear to match the host address. Host address mail.domain.com. Current SAN: DNS Name=*.domain.com, DNS Name=domain.com.
I have added a SAN Cert to the Netscaler.

Since I'm doing SSL Offloading, does this really matter? Am I missing something here?
