VMware: Server Certificate Subject Name Does Not Match

KB ID 0001504


If you replace the self signed certificate on your Horizon Connection servers, (so that they have a certificate with your ‘public’ address), you will see this error;

Horizon Name on Certificate Does Not Match

Status: Servers’s certificate subject name does not match the server’s External URL.
Server’s certificates is not trusted.

SSL Certificate: Invalid


At first I thought this was simply a DNS problem, and I needed to setup split DNS. But that’s not the case, you need to change the the connection servers name(s) to the public name(s) in the connection server properties in Horizon Administrator.

Horizon Connection Server Change URL

After a few minutes the error will disappear.
