Root exception is javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException: No subject alternative names matching IP address

I am trying to tie Active Directory . Have installed certificate from windows admin as mentioned in following link 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/configuring-an-ssl-connection-to-active-directory-229838539.html

But JIRA is throwing following error

Error:

Connection test failed. Response from the server:
AUSTAD-PRD.amat.com:636; nested exception is javax.naming.CommunicationException: AUSTAD-PRD.amat.com:636 [Root exception is javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: java.security.cert.CertificateException: No subject alternative names matching IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xx found]

Hi Prakash,

I saw the same exception after a java update to 7u7x as it is quite strict checking the IP in the certificate (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9185489/x509-subject-alternative-name-subjectaltname-ip-address-field). AFAIK there are two options:

a) Downgrade to 7u5x

b) Issue a new server certificate for your AD server including a subject alternate name for the IP of this server. No idea how this works in the windows world. For our Linux-Server it was a straightforward command line / configuration option.

Hi Prakash, 

Can you verify if some IP Address or hostname has changed? Looks like your AD is not recognising the JIRA Certificate using  AUSTAD-PRD.amat.com with your xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx IP Address.
