To verify that the CN value is the DNS name of the directory, run the following test.

  1. Resolve the value in the CN attribute with the name service on the Teradata Vantage node if used, by running the following commands:
    • dig tcp -t A  directory_DNS_name
    • nslookup directory_DNS_name

      The commands return the IP address associated with the directory DNS name.

  2. Use the IP address to connect to the directory server indicated by the directory_DNS_name. If the IP address does not connect to the correct directory server, the certificate is unusable.
