    Default Change commonname on self-signed cert?

    When creating a certificate using zmcreatecert it uses the server's hostname as commonName. Our users however use a generic url (https://mail.domain.com) to access the service, which makes their browsers display a warning saying that the certificate was created for 'host.domain.com' and not 'mail.domain.com'.
    Is there a way to create a new certificate and specify 'mail.domain.com' on all Zimbra servers?

    I'm searching. I do, I do.. However I've been unable to find anyone discussing this.

    Well, I have to assume that there is no Zimbra-supported way, so I'll either create the certificate manually or modify a copy of the zmcreatecert script then.

    That's the current solution. The next version of zmcreatecert will allow you to specify the hostname (or multiple names) on the command line when you create your cert.
