About configuring HTTPS

You can provide additional security by configuring the websites to use secure web browsing (HTTPS). If secure web browsing is required, it is simpler to configure after installation.

Self Service is composed of a portal and an adapter, which must talk to each other over HTTP or HTTPS. When you want to configure HTTPS, these system URLs must be edited and changed to HTTPS.

The NetBackup Self Service Configurator contains a wizard, which lets you edit and validate all of the system URLs in a single place.

1

Import the SSL certificate into IIS.

  1. In a production system, an SSL certificate must be sourced from a certificate provider such as Verisign. You must import the certificate into IIS. More information is available.

  2. For a test system, a self-signed certificate can be created in IIS. More information is available.

Configure the website to use secure browsing.

  1. In IIS, navigate to the website where you want to install Self Service.

  2. Right click and select Edit Bindings.

  3. Select Add.

  4. Select Type "https", choose the SSL certificate, and then select OK.

  5. Accept the confirmation.

Edit the NSS system URLs.

  1. In Windows Explorer navigate to the NetBackup Self Service Adapter installation location. By default, this location is C:\Program Files\Biomni\NetBackup Self Service Adapter x.x

  2. Double click NetBackupSelfServiceAdapterConfigurator.exe

  3. Select the Edit URLs in NetBackup Self Service Adapter option, click Next

  4. The next page loads the existing URLs for the system, click Next

  5. The Edit Self Service URLs page lets you edit the four URLs in the system. Change the URL scheme to HTTPS, and change the host name to match the host name that is specified in the SSL certificate. Click Next.

  6. The Validate URLs page calls each of the four URLs and confirms that they connect. If you have difficulty getting the URLs to validate, the information in the Log file may help you.

  7. If the URLs validate correctly, click Next.

  8. Update URLs. The configurator runs and updates the URLs in Self Service.

  9. You should now be able to log on to Self Service using the new URL, and the system should load cleanly.
