VCS Cert

VCS Cert

I'm not sure if this is the right place in the forum for this question, but...

I'm trying to issue a wildcard cert for our Cisco VCS. I have purchased the wildcard cert, but I'm not sure how to create the CSR to obtain the wildcard cert for the domain.

Do any of you think I need to spin up a domain controller for that domain and request a cert that way? No one I have talked to seems to know how to do this.

Thank you!

RE: VCS Cert

Have you generated a csr from the vcs?
The deployment guide walks you step by step on the certificate generation subject

RE: VCS Cert

I have, but it generates the host name with the domain name, and I'm trying to find a way to export *.domain.com instead of vcs.domain.com. I have not done this before outside of IIS or our domain controller, and I'm not sure if using one of those to generate the initial CSR would work. Then add the vcs.domain.com to the wildcard as a sub domain.

I'm just having a hard time figuring out the initial CSR to upload to godaddy for the wildcard cert.

RE: VCS Cert

This is an expressway right?
I'm pretty sure wildcard crest are not supported.
I remember reading that somewhere in the deployment guide
