how to change FQDN or other options to fix SSL certificate
Posted on 2016-09-23
I've been notified by Godaddy that I need to change our SSL certificate from a common name to a FQDN before Sep 28. Right now my SSL is for uxxxxx.net and my FQDN is uxxxxx.int.
My functional level for the domain is 2008 R2. I'm not the best with this kind of change and am uncertain what to do. Do I have any options other than renaming my FQDN? If not, how do I rename it? What else needs to be done? Will that change automatically filter to all the other servers? I had been told by a vendor previously that this is a difficult change to make so I'm basing my hesitation on that conversation. If it has to be done, I want to make sure I cover all my bases before doing it.
