I'm confused with SNI support and correct installation of certificate.

I have a vps with a dedicated ip and I use on it a wildcard certificate for hostname, like vpsXX.maindomain.net

I installed a second certificate for a virtual host on this vps with SNI support but I think that there is a problem because every others virtual host on same vps that I load with https work on this virtual host.

in effect you can see the attachment image and on Manage SSL Hosts say that SNI not need and this SSL is primary website on ip address.

I'm very confused, thank you

This is the intended behavior. You will need to make a different installed certificate the primary certificate via the "Make Primary" action under the "Manage SSL Hosts" option in WHM if you want a different certificate to appear for Virtual Hosts without a certificate installed.

Thank you.
