Description Aaron Spangler 2005-03-23 12:21:55 EST
Description of problem:

  Feature request.  Please provide command line option for including
X.509SubjectAltName's in SSL Server certificate.  This would be usefull if
the RHN server was known by several DNS names.

  When rhn-ssl-tool generates a new web cert, it would just have to add the
  optional line 'subjectAltName = alias.example.com' to the bottom of the
  /root/ssl-build/<hostname>/rhn-server-openssl.cnf file when signing the
  certificate request.

  It would be even nicer if the Web GUI for the rhn-installer would then
  prompt the user for any alternate names (aliases).

Todo:  I have not checked if the rhn-client properly accepts the alt names yet.
 This may not even work.  I'll have to gen a cert by hand and see if one of my
rhn clients likes it.
