Whenever I have ran the command "splunk reload deploy-server" in my Deployment Master server I am getting this message as below:

WARNING: Server Certificate Hostname Validation is disabled. Please see server.c onf/[sslConfig]/cliVerifyServerName for details.

So how can we get this fixed.  Kindly help to check and update.

That message is just a warning so there's nothing to "fix".  You can ignore it or you can make it "go away" by setting cliVerifyServerName=true in server.conf.  Doing so, however, may generate other error messages.  See the thread at https://community.splunk.com/t5/Splunk-Enterprise/Why-is-server-certificate-hostname-validation-disa... for a discussion of the matter.

As per your suggestion i will just ignore the warning message if else if I change anything then as you have mentioned it will trigger other error messages so as of now for a safer side we will ignore the message since it doesn't cause any impact.
