I have an application server running Windows Server 2012 R2 with IIS ver. 8.5 installed. I have an internal website (Intranet) running and it is accessible by "Server-Name.Mydomain.com"
, it is using a self signed SSL certificate (Signed by itself a.k.a. "Sever-Name.Mydomain.com")
I have setup a CNAME record on our DNS server to point to the web server: "Cool Website Name" ---> "Server-Name.Mydomain.com"
The issue is I get an error when connecting to the website via the CNAME alias (Error attached below) -- Https://
<cool website name>
-It states that the security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different websites address
My question is how can I secure this website with https while still accessing it via a CNAME record? There are requirements for the website to be renamed so that users do not need to navigate to "Sever-Name.Mydomain.com".
However, when they do this they have to click 'accept' or 'continue to this website' when the error pops up.
Is there any way to achieve this maybe using an Enterprise CA (Active Directory Certificate Services) or some other method? Can any IIS/Intranet experts advise how to achieve this?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
