Disabling SSL in Binary Tarball Installations - Linux and Mac OSX

SSL is enabled on Linux and Mac OSX installations by default.

To disable SSL on Linux and Mac OSX, you need to modify the configuration files for OpsCenter and its agents.

Procedure

On the OpsCenter machine:

  1. Go to the directory containing the OpsCenter configuration file (opscenterd.conf):
    • Packaged installs: cd /etc/opscenter
    • Binary installs: cd /<install_location
  2. Open opscenterd.conf, for editing. For example:
    sudo vi opscenterd.conf
    
  3. Add the following to opscenterd.conf:
    [agents] 
    use_ssl = false
  4. Restart OpsCenter:
    • Packaged installs: sudo service opscenterd restart
    • Binary installs: Find the OpsCenter Java process ID (PID), kill the process using its PID number, and then start the OpsCenter:
      ps -ef | grep opscenter
      sudo kill <pid>

      bin/opscenter (Use -f to start in the foreground.)

On the agent machine:

  1. Go to the directory containing the OpsCenter agent configuration file (address.yaml):
    cd /<install_location>/conf
  2. Open address.yaml for editing. For example:
    sudo vi address.yaml
    
  3. Add the following command and set its value to 0.
    use_ssl: 0
    
  4. Restart OpsCenter:
    • Packaged installs: sudo service opscenterd restart
    • Binary installs: Find the OpsCenter Java process ID (PID), kill the process using its PID number, and then start the OpsCenter:
      ps -ef | grep opscenter
      sudo kill <pid>

      bin/opscenter (Use -f to start in the foreground.)
