How to remove RDS certificate warning: server name incorrect

On some MCIT deployments you may get this warning, we show you how to fix this issue

On some RDS MCIT deployments (classic and v3) you may get the warning: "The server name on the certificate is incorrect". 

You can still connect by clicking "yes" however there is a way to resolve this issue (mismatch between public RDS domain and AD domain name).

Warning: This only applies if you are using the autords.com public domain for RDS. If you use your own domain name and certificate this fix DOES NOT APPLY.

Note: This tool only works for:
