Amazon S3 advanced server configuration options
The following tables describes the SSL, HTTP header configuration, and proxy server options that are specific to all Amazon S3-compatible cloud providers. These options appear on the Advanced Server Configuration dialog box.
Table: General Settings tab options
Selectif you want to use the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol for user authentication or data transfer between NetBackup and cloud storage provider.
NetBackup supports only Certificate Authority (CA) signed certificates while it communicates with cloud storage in the SSL mode. Ensure that the cloud server (public or private) has CA-signed certificate. If it does not have the CA-signed certificate, data transfer between NetBackup and cloud provider fails in the SSL mode.
