Multiple hostname support in ADFS?

Is there any way to have ADFS work on multiple hostnames?

 

For instance, our ADFS 3 (on Server 2012 R2) is currently configured as fs.domain.com. If we create a CNAME to point something.domain.com to fs.domain.com and then try to browse to https://something.domain.com/adfs/ls/, I get the following results:

- Chrome:  ERR_CONNECTION_RESET
- Firefox:  Secure Connection Failed

 

Before I go the route of creating a new SSL certificate with both the fs.domain.com and something.domain.com names... will this even work? Will ADFS respond as both fs.domain.com and something.domain.com?

 

There's a long winded reason why I'm asking, but it's fairly irrelevant here.

 

Upgrading ADFS is certainly an option, if there are features in newer versions.

It will not work most of the time. Redirects to IdP happen from SP. CNAME might work but ADFS is unaware itself of "secondary" name. and SSL bind will be funky (strict check for HTTPS hostname binding)

That was my thinking, but I wanted to bounce the thought around before I went another route. Thanks for your input!
