Like I said, you really need to be familiar with the Hotspot 2.0
specification (and certificate policy for this particular area)..

I do have such a setup, but it takes quite significant effort to get
everything running.. Especially OSCP stapling was a pain a while back,
but this should be easier now that recent enough versions of various
components are included in common Linux distributions and one does not
need to manually update things..

The DNS name itself does not matter (well, apart from obviously having
to be resolvable by the server and clients connecting to do OSU). The
other things in the certificates do matter, though, i.e., there are
rules even for the exact format used as the CN in the CA certificates,
