Issue/Introduction

We use gateways and PolicyManager 9.4. Every time we connect to the gateway by hostname, we have to click the "Warning:
The hostname entered for the Gateway is server01 but the Gateway presented a certificate claiming its hostname is server01.com. Do you want to login to this Gateway?"
 
I understand why the warning is there, but I was wondering if there is some startup parameter (like -D option in the command line) we could use to suppress this warning.
 
 

Cause

01

Environment

Release : 9.4

Component : API GATEWAY

Resolution

There is no command or method that suppresses the message

The reason you get this warning is because the default SSL name is different to the one you specify when you log into the gateway.

Can you check the difference between the default SSL private key. It's shown with an "S" sign when you go to :

> Tasks
> Certificates, Key, Secrets
>Manage PRivate key

Also, what port do you log in through policy manager? Default is 8443. When checking the port settings. what have you specified for :

> Task
> Transports
> Manage Listen ports
> Select the port which you log into policy manager with
> SSL/TLS Settings
> What is the "server Private Key" ?
