Hi @AneesUrRehman-9712

Welcome to Q&A forum!

Are you deploying Standard Edition Server or Enterprise Server?

In this document, it seems that wildcard entries are only supported for the simple URL entries. So please carefully consider the use of a wildcard certificate. There is no support for a wildcard entry as the subject name (also referred to as the common name or CN) for any role. Therefore make use of SAN wildcard only. You could check this article to know each server's certificate SANs.
