Steps for enabling Self Signed SSL in OpManager 12 Enterprise Edition

Steps to enable SSL for OpManagerCentral 
    • Stop OpManagerCentral
    • Open a command prompt (Run > cmd) and change directory to /OpManagerCentral/bin.
    • Execute the following command  
      • ssl_gen.bat -f Enable
    • Start OpManagerCentral
Now we have successfully enabled self signed SSL certificate for OpManagerCentral.

As we have enabled SSL for OpManagerCentral, we need to do few changes in probes. Then, OpManagerProbe will start communicate with OpManagerCentral through https mode. Please follow the steps given below  :-
    • Please edit InitImpl parameter in /OpManagerProbe/conf/OpManager/CommunicationInfo.xml in all probes to com.me.opmanager.extranet.remote.communication.https.probe.HTTPSProbeCommInit.
    • Then copy OpManager.truststore from /OpManagerProbe/conf/ folder and save it under /OpManagerProbe/conf/ for all probes.
    • Restart all OpManagerProbe services, so that probes can communicate with OpManagerCentral in https mode.
Note : We have to follow the above steps in all the probes. Steps mentioned above will enable SSL only in Central and probes will remain in http mode, only the communication between Probe and central will be in https mode.
