How to set Server Name Indication in Bindig Configuration

Fri Sep 07, 2018 2:26 pm

Hello,
when I'm creating a new https-"Website Binding" for a IIS Sites configuration, I could activate the "Server Name Indication" in IIS.

This option exists in IIS since Win8.

Could you tell me how I can achieve that in Advanced Installer?
Regards, Éric.

Hello Éric,

We apologize for the delayed reply. I am afraid we do not have built-in support for this option. This improvement is already on our TODO list and hopefully it will be available in the future. We will update this thread when such improvement is available.

Until then as a workaround you can try to develop your own custom action to set the related flag. For instance you can create a PowerShell custom action to set the SNI flag. The custom action could be added as a custom action with sequence scheduled after "Install Execution Stage -> Finish Execution" action group.

Hope this helped.

All the best,
Daniel

Hello Catalin,
thanks for adding the feature.
I've tried to set the value, but the checkbox is not enabled:

Hello Éric,

In order to use this option, you need to make sure that you choose HTTPS Binding, only for an HTTPS Binding the "Require Server Name Indication" option can be set.

So, please make sure you select an HTTPS binding to configure. See attached screenshot.
