6.1 Accessing and Editing the HTTPSTKD Configuration File

Anytime you want to change the functionality of OES Remote Manager, access the /etc/opt/novell/httpstkd.conf file, modify the settings, then restart the HTTPSTKD daemon.

NOTE:Beginning with OES 2018 SP2, NRM supports communication over TLS v1.2 when the cipher level in the /etc/opt/novell/httpstkd.conf file is set to all or high.

To access and edit this file from within OES Remote Manager:

  1. Log in to OES Remote Manager as the root user.

  2. Click the Configure icon Configuration page access icon in the navigation frame.

  3. Click Edit httpstkd config file.

  4. Make the changes.

  5. Click Save Changes.

You can alternatively open the /etc/opt/novell/httpstkd.conf file in a text editor that saves files to a UNIX format, edit the file, then save the file.

After making changes to this file and saving it, restart the HTTPSTKD daemon. See Restarting the HTTPSTKD Daemon. You can also restart it manually as described in Section 5.3, Starting or Stopping HTTPSTKD.

Table 6-1 identifies the functions that are controlled by settings in the OES Remote Manager configuration file, and provides links to information about how to change them.
