Fought with this a bit using our internal CA. This link is helpful: https://www.poweradmin.com/help/pa-server-monitor-8-3/report_other_ssl_cert.aspx

Following along in the create your own new certificate section:

New step 4 The Client.cnf file failed to include the SANs for us, so cert errors would result. If you save the text at the bottom as Client.cnf in the NewCert folder after updating it with your information, the CSR will contain the SANs listed in the DNS.1, DNS.2 boxes (make sure not to leave any trailing spaces in the Client.cnf file.)

After step 8 Get Base 64 certnew.cer file from https://YOUR_SUBCA_FQDN/certsrv/ Copy certnew.cer into NewCert folder

Convert .cer to .pem "C:Program FilesPA Server Monitoropenssl.exe" x509 -in certnew.cer -outform PEM -out SIGNED_CLIENT_CERT.pem

(back slashes in path are missing)

input_password = PrivatePW000
output_password = PrivatePW000
distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name
req_extensions = v3_req
prompt = no
C = Country Code
ST = State
L = City
O = Organization
OU = Org Unit
CN = FQDN of server
keyUsage = keyEncipherment, dataEncipherment
extendedKeyUsage = serverAuth
subjectAltName = @alt_names
DNS.1 = example.yourdomain.com
DNS.2 = example
