Configure the host name and FQDN on NetScaler Gateway

The host name is the name of the NetScaler Gateway appliance that is associated with the license file. The host name is unique to the appliance and is used when you download the Universal license. You define the host name when you run the Setup Wizard to configure NetScaler Gateway for the first time.

The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is included in the signed certificate that is bound to a virtual server. You do not configure the FQDN on NetScaler Gateway. One appliance can have a unique FQDN assigned to each virtual server that is configured on NetScaler Gateway by using certificates.

You can find the FQDN of a certificate by viewing the details of the certificate. The FQDN is located in the subject field of the certificate.

To view the FQDN of a certificate

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand SSL, and then click Certificates.
  2. In the details pane, select a certificate, click Action, and then click Details.
  3. In the Certificate Details dialog box, click Subject. The FQDN of the certificate appears in the list.
