non-ssl webadmin redirects to ssl IP not FQDN

I have the same problem as:
http://forums.novell.com/novellforums/novell-product-discussions/collaboration/data-synchronizer/ds-mobility-pack/447480-running-webadmin-port-80-a.html

namely, I've installed a commercial cert for the webadmin and the mobility, no problems there. The issue as follows:

- go to http://datasync.mydomain.com:8120 (i.e. non SSL, use FQDN)
- it redirects to https://10.1.2.3:8120 (i.e. SSL)

The problem being, http request redirects to https but not the fqdn; rather, the IP is used; so the administrator still gets the cert warning.

The workaround is to go to the https directly i.e.: https://datasync.mydomain.com:8120

It's not obvious which (if any) config file to modify to fix the redirect behaviour. Any ideas appreciated, thanks.
