  • What is the issue you're experiencing? – Jussi Palo Nov 28 '16 at 11:16
  • We are using self signing certificate for dev environment. 1. The certificate for this site expires in 2017 or later, and the certificate chain contains a certificate signed using SHA-1. – Arun Bhandari Nov 28 '16 at 11:18
  • 2. There are issues with the site's certificate chain (net::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID). – Arun Bhandari Nov 28 '16 at 11:18
  • First issue is fine as we are working on dev and self signing certificate are not supported any more as per Microsoft but second error is not known. Maybe we are making mistakes while extending existing web application or while binding the IIS website. – Arun Bhandari Nov 28 '16 at 11:21
