Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 12.1.3.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Customer is accessing an https website and the URL indeed does not match the name on the certificate.  However they want to disable the name verification in order to use it anyway. In the console customer has set Hostname Verification on the server's SSL tab to None and the startup param -Dweblogic.security.SSL.ignoreHostnameVerification=true; however still receiving the error:

"Error java.security.cert.CertificateException: No subject alternative DNS name matching"

Applied the patch from BUG 20019718 for the similar issue in WLS 12.1.3.0.0 but issue still persists.
