WebSocket Server dialog
Use this dialog to save NetBackup credentials for a secure connection to an application server in the cloud. NetBackup uses the server credentials to connect to the cloud server's WebSocket endpoint.
To use this dialog to save the credentials, the endpoint information must be available in either of the following ways:
In a URL that the cloud application generated.
The following topic contains a procedure for using this dialog:
See Saving NetBackup credentials for a WebSocket server endpoint.
Table: Fields in the WebSocket Server dialog
Select an option
Select one of the following to specify the endpoint information:
Clickto locate the JSON-formatted file that contains the endpoint information. Use the pull-down or the search icons. From left to right, the icons can move up one level, go to the desktop, create a new folder, or change the list view.
As an alternative, you can enter the file's full path in the File Name field.
REQUIRED: After you have selected the endpoint information ( or ), click to view the SSL certificate of the endpoint.
If you entered a URL for the endpoint information, click Server Information.to extract the information and display it under
The following fields show the endpoint information that NetBackup extracted from the JSON file or the URL.
The fully qualified host name or IP address of the cloud server that contains the endpoint.
This host name or IP address must be unique: it must not be the host name or IP address for an endpoint that has already been added.
WebSocket Server Endpoint:
The full URL, port, and any additional identifier of the WebSocket endpoint.
Example endpoint: wss://cloudhost7.nebula.com:8080/netbackup/face1
ws:// is not supported.
The server group that the endpoint belongs to.
Clickto display the security token that the cloud application uses to validate the identity of NetBackup.
If the extracted endpoint information is correct, clickto save this information as NetBackup endpoint credentials.
At a configurable interval, a scheduled task checks the NetBackup database for updates to endpoints and acts accordingly. It can take up to the configured time (default is 5 minutes) to connect after you add an endpoint.
