How to connect to appliances from CMC(SCC) using HTTPS only

Categories: SteelCentral Controller for SteelHead (CMC-VE)
Solution Number: S25671

Issue

There may be security policies in certain environments which prohibits the use of HTTP when trying to navigate to connected appliances on the CMC. In these cases, you will need to configure the CMC(SCC) to use HTTPS.

Solution

Please navigate to CONFIGURE > SECURITY > CMC Security to review the current configuration. You will need to choose the "Always use https" so that it will connect to the appliance on 443 in future instances. Also if you would like to eliminate the use of HTTP altogether, please issue the command below:

conf t
no web http enable
exit
write memory

 

 

Environment
