Error description

  • TO BE REVIEWED WITH TEAM - The profile creation has been
    accepting  the domain name that starts with the digit.  At

    Name in the server certificate.

  • It is  better for customer to update the domain name.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Profile fails to create if user         *
    *                      provided                                *
    *                      hostname with digits in the domain part *
    *                      of the hostname.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Digits are not allowed in the domain part of a hostname in the
    SAN
    extension of a certificate.   The default certificate will fail
    to
    create in turn the profile fails to create.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added more checking of the CN value of Subject DN to be inline w
    what the JDK allows to be in the SAN extension of a certificate.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.21 and 9.0.5.9. For more information, see 'Recommended
