    Secure file

    Monoj Padhy

      Hi Guys,

       

      Usually the secure file contains following entries.

      default:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls:

      rscd:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls:

       

      Kindly guide me significance of these two entries.

       

      Thanks,

          Default entry:

           

          When you initially install Network Shell, the BMC BladeLogic consoles, or the RSCDagent, a default entry is automatically created in the secure file. The default entry specifies that the client use protocol 5 and instructs clients and servers to communicate using the TLS protocol for secure communication. The default entry

          also designates the default port as 4750. The default entry that is automaticallygenerated in a client’s secure file reads as follows:

           

          default:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls

           

           

           

          rscd entry:

           

          When you initially install an RSCD agent on a server, an rscd entry is automaticallycreated in the secure file. The rscd entry specifies that the RSCD agent use protocol 5 and instructs clients and servers to communicate using the TLS protocol for secure communication. The rscd entry also designates the default port as 4750. The rscd entry that is automatically generated in the secure file on a server reads as follows:

           

          rscd:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls

           

          This and more information can be found in the BladeLogic Administration Guide.

            Default is the line for the nsh client that tells it how to communicate w/ rscd agents.

             

            The rscd line will be present if the agent is installed and tells the agent what port to bind to, etc.

              Thanks Guys .................

               

              Actually i wish to manage few servers with a customized port other than 4750.

              There are few managed server which listens on the default port 4750 and their are some server where the default port cant be used. so we need to use different port here. what all changes we need to do in this case.

               

              Application server secure file

              default:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls:

              file server secure file

               

              rscd:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls

              default:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls:

               

               

              managed servers

              rscd:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls

              default:port=4750:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls:

                You need:

                 

                HOSTNAME:port=CUSTOMPORT:protocol=5:tls_mode=encryption_only:encryption=tls

                 

                This should be documented in the admin pdf.
