How to enable subjectAltName when signing certificates in pki-ca

We installed pki-ca (10.4.1-17 - latest from the repo) on a CentOS 7.4 server so we could sign our own SSL certificates.

When we approve the requests, the subjectAltNames from the CSR's are not included in the certificates.

I have added the following lines to /usr/share/pki/ca/profiles/ca/caServerCert.cfg, and changed the serverCertSet.list to include 9 at the end of it: policyset.serverCertSet.9.constraint.classid=noConstraintImpl Constraint policyset.serverCertSet.9.constraint.subjAltNameExtCritical=false policyset.serverCertSet.9.default.classid=userExtensionDefaultImpl Supplied Extension Default policyset.serverCertSet.9.default.params.userExtOID=

What else do we need to do to include the subjectAltNames in the certificates?

Thanks, George

I looked at my configuration and the OID was instead of .17.

I copied the configuration example from a bad reference.

Also, the configuration filename I needed to edit was located in two places, and the one I had configured according to that same documentation was not having an effect. I had to modify /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/profiles/ca/caServerCert.cfg instead.

Lastly, "service pki-ca start" did not do anything, because there is no service named pki-ca. I had to use "pki-server instance-stop|start pki-tomcat" to get it to start.
