Ambari on Azure - Fix the Self Signed Cert Error

Ambari on Azure - Fix the Self Signed Cert Error

New Contributor

I have installed a Hadoop cluster on Azure VMs and setup Ambari to use Https. To access Ambari, I will have to type in https://xxxxx.cloudapp.net:8443, instead of https://AMBARI_HOST:8443. So when the cert is generated by some certification authority, what should the server name be set as? The actual URL or AMBARI_HOST to bypass the cert error that the browser throws if it cannot validate the cert. Or is there a way to bypass this error?

You seem to be using a self signed certificate as such your Web browser doesn't trust it.

You need to import your local CA into your Web browser and the error will go away.

@Kay Aries Need more context. Whats the error? You are right on https://xxxxx.cloudapp.net:8443, instead of https://AMBARI_HOST:8443

It is more like a warning stating that the browser cannot verify the validity of the cert.

I don't want to see that warning. So the certificate should issued to the server (AMBARI_HOST) or xxxxx.cloudapp.net?

I will go through the URL you have specified, will let you know if it resolved the issue.

Thanks a lot, Neeraj.
