SAP Web Dispatcher - Using Alternate URLs and SSL...

I have installed a Web Dispatcher server on a WAS and got it working with SSL - everything worked!

Now I want to do exactly the same, but use a different SSL. Is there a document that details what I need to do?

If I just try it, it works, but the SSL certificate says that it is invalid for the new DNS name.

To explain fully what I want to do:

Our SAP servers have DNS names (e.g. abc.def.mycomp.co.uk = 123.123.123.123) and I have configured the Web Dispatcher on that server, using that DNS name. Therefore I have also configured the SSL certificate on that server (in transaction STRUSTSSO2) to use that DNS name.

With that configuration everything worked as expected.

I now want to configure the Web Dispatcher to use a unique DNS name as opposed to the system specific DNS name (because we are migrating the systems over to different physical servers later this/next year).

I have defined the DNS name abc.def.mycomp.co.uk to point to the server 123.123.123.123 and have changed the 'Own Certif' value in the SSL Server value (transaction STRUSTSSO2) from CN=abc.def.mycomp.co.uk to CN=*.def.mycomp.co.uk and have imported a new test SSL certificate (obtained from https://websmp201.sap-ag.de/SSLTest) with the value *.def.mycomp.co.uk

I then go to https://abc.def.mycomp.co.uk/sap/public/icman/ping (in order to test the Web Dispatcher service) but I get SSL warnings saying that the SSL certificate in the BW system does not match the DNS name that I am using to access the WAS. Please can you advise on how this can be achieved?

Thanks.

    Sorted it - I just had to bounce the WAS to get it to pick up the new SSL certificate! 😊
