Mediation certificate, machine FQDN or pool as subject name? RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello all,

     

    we're about to add a mediation server to our enterprise OCS to support integration with our PBX.

    as per Ocspedia (http://www.ocspedia.com/MediationServer/Cert_Mediation.htm), "if the server is part of the pool you should use the pool's name" as subject name.

    Problem: we do already have a certificate with the pool FQDN as subject name. It was generated at the time of installing the front-end, when there were no plans to add a mediation server.

    And, of course, the mediation server FQDN is not on the subject alternate name.

     

    could you please confirm if these statements are true and if i need to regenerate a new certificate with the pool FQDN as subject name and the front end AND the mediation FQDNs as alternate?

     

    thank you.

    D.

  • Hi,

     

    You don't need to have mediation FQDN in the SAN of your Pool certificate. When you add a mediation server, you only need to get a certificate for this server, with the FQDN of the mediation that' all.
