Tips to update the certificate request with SANs (subject alternative names)

When we deploy our custom certificate in the https://<vrops>/admin UI, vROps will take care of distribute that same certificate to all vROps nodes.

Because vROps uses one certificate for all nodes, we must have every nodes’ IP address and FQDN (and short name, if your systems support short names) as Subject Alternate Names in the one certificate.On top of that we need to add the alias name to the master node to the SAN so that when we accessing the like with URL it will come with the certificate.

I have found the below two links which helped to achieve the same.
