SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name

Jump to solution

I am attempting to install Data Protector 10.3 and I am getting an error immediately getting an error when trying to open Cell Manager that states: SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name.

During the installation, there was a FAILURE for hostname validation, it stated that the hostname label must begin with an alphabet.  Our server naming convention begins with a number, could this be causing this error with the SSL?

Thanks for the link and the clarification.  I assumed this would be the issue, I just needed to be certain.  I renamed the server, and uninstalled and re-installed the 10.3 version of the software, and it opened fine without the error.
