Cloud Service Appliace - Modify Links to use HTTPS

Version 1

    Problem:

    The links on the CSA no longer work. It requires manually entering the https in the URL.

     

    Cause:

    Port 80 has been disabled for security reasons either on the CSA or an external firewall.

     

    Solution:

    Note:This is an unsupported modification and will not be supported by LANDESK.


    • SSH to the Cloud Service Appliance using the built in admin account
    • Elevate the session. It will prompt for a password, this is the same password used to login
      • sudo su
    • Change directory to /usr/LANDesk/broker/webroot for the 4.2 CSA or /opt/landesk/broker/webroot for the 4.3
      • cd /opt/landesk/broker/webroot
    • The links are built dynamically using the .vroot files in this directory. You will need to modify the .vroot files for each link on the main CSA page. Example:
      • vi client.vroot
      • press insert to allow edit
      • change references in this file from http to https
      • press escape to exit edit mode
      • press Shift+Q
      • type "wq" and press enter
    • Do this for each .vroot file
    • Restart the CSA
