certificate request file from ASMI interface should include Subject Alternative Name (SAN) to support modern web browsers

Currenty the certificate signing reqeust file (*csr) exported from the POWER flexible service processor interface ASMI does not include a Subject Alternative Name (SAN).

As result modern web browsers, like Microsoft Edge or Chrome with strict security settings reject a valid certificate if a SAN is not included. For example the error code from Microsoft Edge is
NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID

Also the certificate should be allowed to fill in the OU (organization unit) of the certificate.
