Filemakmer 16 certificate assistance needed

We are setting up Filemaker 16 (version 16.0.1)

When installed on the worker server Filemaker install created a website "FMWebSite" it added port 80 *, port 443 * and port 16000 * the Filemaker default certificate was apply to the bind for port 443 and 16000.

We imported our custom certificate *" to both the master server and the worker, this updated the bind for the website ports with the wildcard certificate.

I also found this in a uac.log:

2017-09-29 16:35:25.531 +0000 - info: stderr: Certificate was added to keystore

[Storing C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\CStore\fmcacerts]


When we open the admin console and go to the database, security and view the certificate it displays the *" certificate.

On the worker when using FileMaker WebDirect Worker Deployment Assistant, the certificate shows a status of "Valid".

the rest of the information is correct.


When we try to connect the worker to the master we get "FileMaker Server cannot verify the SSL certificate. The certificate does not match the hostname."


Where is this process looking for the "hostname" value?


We wee need to add headers to the IIS bindings?


Thank you,
