We currently put Hostname/IP into Common Name (CN) in the host
certificate subject. This is not good for two reasons:
- Using CN for host name matching in certificates is obsolete and
should be no longer used .
- CN may not contain an IP address.
In the latter case, migrations don't work on el8 since libvirt refuses
to connect to a destination host having invalid data in its
The correct way to handle the certificates is to put the host name or
IP addresses to the Subject Alternative Name . This is what this

Hi Martin, can you please review this doc text as soon as possible as we need it for errata approval for 4.3.7?
The following improvements have been made to host certificates used for encrypted communication between the RHV Manager and the Virtual Desktop Server Manager:
1. All newly added host will have certificates with correct SAN field
2. A periodic check for certificate validity is performed and if the SAN field is not populated an error is reported in the audit log, notifying administrators that the host certificate needs to be re-enrolled.
3. The SAN field in the certificate is also checked during host upgrade, so that the host certificate can be re-enrolled during host upgrade.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
