HipchatNotificationTransport exception when sending hipchat notifications

We're seeing the following exception in our bamboo server logs when bamboo attempts to send a notification to hipchat:

This means that the SSL is not convinced that Bamboo is using the host it says it's using. If you're using a self-signed cert, make sure that it has your FQDN, or if you're using a commercial cert, make sure Tomcat is aware of its network location.
