[dev.icinga.com #11159] Common name in node wizard isn't case sensitive #3939
This issue has been migrated from Redmine: https://dev.icinga.com/issues/11159

If you use "icinga2.exe node wizard" and you have a hostname with uppercase letters, the certificate creation will fail as the wizard uses a lowercase hostname, regardless what you have entered as common name or zonename.

DNS names, as in the FQDN, are always case insensitive. https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4343 Therefore the lowercase notation is correct about it. You're probably using the Windows AD names which do not care about upper and lower case characters. The SSL certification CN is also case insensitive, so imho we're on the safe side to use the lowercase notation enforcing a clear specification for names amongst multiple operating systems.

here is the Output from the wizard. As you can see the "Please specifiy the local zone name [my_little_hostname]:" is already in lowercase. With lowercase the certificate fetch will fail, as the ticket was generated for uppercase hostname.
