Symptoms


Customer is trying  to integrate PeopleSoft with third party application using https.

The third party application's digital certificates have been imported in to PS gateway keystore.  When the PSHD tries to post the xml messages to the third party application, the following error is received "Integration Gateway - External System Contact Error".  

The errorLog says "HTTPS hostname wrong:  should be <biztalk-hpit.corp.xx.com>, but cert says <CN=xx01.americas.xx.net".  
Customer  tried sending messages to the load balancer URL https://biztalk-hpit.XX.XX.com/ImageHttpRcv/BTSHTTPReceive.dll?CE but the subject name of the
third party certificate is "xx01.americas.xx.net" and the "biztalk-hpit.XX.XX.com" name is in the "Subject Alternative Name" of the certificate.

Certificate Details :
Subject :  
xx01.americas.xx.net
Subject Alternative Name :
DNS Name=xx.xxx.xxxp.xxorp.net
DNS Name=biztalk-hpit.XX.XX.com
DNS Name=xx01.cce.xx.com
