At the time of installation you can specify this in this section: BMC BladeLogic Decision Support for Server Automation Communication Protocol and Port
Communication Protocol (http/https)
Is this an installed BDSSA?
To change the BDSSA server from using HTTP to using HTTPS please do the following;
1). Run the following command – it is in the Programfiles/BMC software/Bladelogic/2.0/Reports/bin folder
2). You may need to acquire credentials;
GlobalReportAdmin Site = Siemens
GlobalReportAdmin User = A user with GlobalReportAdmins role
GlobalReportAdmin Role = GlobalReportAdmins
Authentication Type = 1
Password = Password of user above
3). Change the protocol (the protocol must be in lowercase).
blrptadmin> set webserver
Accept argument for command:Authentication parameters(y/n):n
Enter options for set webserver
Enter HTTP protocol: https
Enter HTTP port:: 443
Enter Certificate key file path:
Enter Certificate file path:
4). Restart the Apache service and the Cognos Service.
5). Go to site via browser – https://blreport
You will need to accept the site without a validcertificate;
For Firefox follow the exception process
For IE you may need to add the site to the trusted sites.
Is it possible to change it afterwards? Using blrptadmin?
Yes, I think Steve just answered that for you. That should work.
