I'm trying to set up the admin console to be accessible w/ SSL (https). I have the
right certificates set up and the main FDS is SSL enabled. I'm running FDS 1.0.4. I
usually get a problem when I open up the admin console, click on the Configuration tab,
click on the Encryption tab in that window, then try to check the enable ssl box. It
gives me some error and doesn't save it.
I had an idea which I tried and I think it worked (or it was just coincidence). Instead
of clicking on the Configuration tab, I clicked the 'Configure Admin Server' task
in the Task tab. This opened a separate configuration window which otherwise looks the
same as before. But, this time I was successful in saving the change.
I still had a problem with the NSSNickname being set to 'blank' in the
console.conf file (under /opt/fedora-ds/admin-serv/config); I edited that manually. This
seems to happen if you try and fail to save the SSL changes, after that the certificate
list always comes up empty. And I also manually edit nss.conf to point to a file for the
certificate-store PIN for automatic startup.
So, should the two methods of opening the configuration window have different effects?
