I'm trying to update the certificate for Captive Portal through Aruba Central so i can finally update the IAP firmware.
I decided to get a Public Certificate from a Certificate Authority so user's wouldn't have any security errors when getting access to internet.
To create the certificate i followed the steps from this "How To" that i found after reading a post in the forum;
"How to Create a Certificate for Instant Captive Portal using Open SSL and a Certificate Authority"
I managed to install a certificate through Aruba Central and then assign it to Captive Portal and Auth Server.
Now, when android and windows users connect to the network they get a Security Warning, they can continue but get a “Untrusted certificate” message in the browser.
If I check the certificate I am warned that the website doesn’t match the certificate name. I had to create the certificate with the common name of a domain I have access to, in this case it was wifi.xxx.xx.
Is this the right procedure to generate a certificate for Aruba Central Captive Portal?

Yes, its a publicly signed certificate from Comodo.
I have tried to change the Aruba Central > Guest Access > Splash Page Configuration > Override Common Name to match the one used to generate the Public Certificate (wifi.xxx.xx).
The Certificate Usage Type is Auth Server and Captive Portal.
Android phone users get the following error when connecting:
Name of the web site doesn’t match the one in the certificate.
Any ideia why is this happening with Android phones?

Have you found the solution to this issue? I am getting trouble with this situation too. And the Aruba Central documentation does not help at all.
Thank you in advance
