MAS and Director integration

doesn’t seem to work on just HTTP
Needs a host file or DNS to be done if using wildacrd cert.
Needs cert chain to be correct.
Can’t use a pfx cert on MAS even though you can on netscaler, so export the wildcard.pfx.ns cert off the netscaler and rename it to a .pem then import to MAS, which will then reboot.

Need to run the exe in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Director\tools

Use the parameter /confignetscaler from command line.
add MAS FQDN and select secure.

If it doesn’t work you’ve probably got either SSL or DNS errors (or both!)
