Configuring the VMP Server For
If the VMP Server was not configured to
use SSL during installation, you can use the VMP Enterprise Manager
to configure it to use SSL after installation.
You can also follow these steps to configure the VMP Server
to use an updated SSL certificate.
Note: If you are using VMP in a clustered environment, and want
to use SSL, you must configure each cluster node to use SSL.
Start the VMP Enterprise Manager.
The Configuration window appears.
Scroll down to the Services folder and then to the
In the NetworkSecureCertificate row, click in the
Value column, then click
In the Select Certificate dialog box, select the SSL certificate that you want to
use, and click OK.
Note: Vocera recommends that you use a publicly issued SSL certificate rather
than a self-signed certificate. If a self-signed certificate is used, most web
browsers will generate an error when the VMP Server is accessed from
the VMP Web Console, which might cause
confusion for end users.
If you want to enforce the use of SSL when connecting from a web browser to this
VMP Server, click in the
Value column of the
NetworkSecureEnforceWebSSL row. From the dropdown list that
appears, select true. Users that attempt to connect using HTTP
are now directed to the HTTPS URL.
Click Save to save your changes. In the confirmation dialog
box that appears, click OK.
After you have made your changes, the VMP Server needs to be
restarted. In the dialog box that appears, click Yes to
restart the VMP Server now, or
click No to restart it later.
