Give some more details about your environment.
When u say NSH connection , r u using NSh here from the GUI against a target ?
Yes : you're right !
What is the network between the GUI and appserver, and the appserver and target?
Are you using a nsh proxy?
Sorry for the delay !
We have made new test on our architecture that doesn't used nsh proxy, but pass trough multiple Firewalls.
With a machine in the same subnet than the BladeLogic Application Server, it takes about 9 s to obtain the prompt, versus 30 s on a custumer server behind Firewals.
This incompressible 9 seconds seem related to BladeLogic authentication phase controlled by the JAVA layer of the solution: can you please confirmed this point ?
From our side, we need to diagnose Network latency relating to crossing of multiple Firewalls.
I'll let you informed of our results.
What do you mean by ‘obtain the prompt’ ?
If you type ‘nsh’ at the command prompt it takes 9s for that to return to a nsh prompt?
If you are not using the nsh proxy, then running nsh from the command prompt does not initiate any connections to anything.
We don't have a dedicated server for the nsh proxy, that's what i mean.
we use the feature embendded in the bladelogic application server.
So, when i say it takes 9 s to get the prompt, it's the time to obtain the # prompt when using "NSh here" from the GUI against the target.
But the nsh client is configured to use the nsh proxy?
What is in the secure file on the system you ran ‘nsh here’ from ?
The secure file on my desktop in directory C:\Windows\rsc is :
default:port=XXXX:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:auth_profiles_file=/C/Program Files/BMC Software/BladeLogic 2/NSH/br/authenticationProfiles.xml:auth_profile=defaultProfile:appserver_protocol=ssoproxy:encryption=tls
Port has been hidden in this exchange for security reasons (sure not XXXX !)
And this is the system that does not go through all the firewalls, and is on the same network as the appserver? and it takes 9s to ‘login’ ?
You don’t need the port=whatever if you are using the nsh proxy. I’m not sure if that will cause an issue or not.
Is there another bsa gui installed on this system (I see the ‘BladeLogic 2’)
How are you launching nsh ? cmd, start menu, nsh here ?
Did you resolve the issue?
Please share the details.
Thanks & Regards,
