Client certificate for syslog is failing

L3 Networker

Im trying to setup a syslog forward from a loggcollector with tls, i get this error in the syslog log on the collector.


Certificate subject does not match configured hostname; hostname='scrubbed', certificate=''

However the certificate has the correct hostname as a san name (aswell as, however it has lots of san names (10+), is the last one in the list of san name if i check the certificate with openssl from a other host. Has anyone run into issue with lots of san names on a palo while using client certificate?

this is a bug in the syslog-ng library. please check with the engineering team of Palo Alto networks for possible solutions.
