HTTPS configuration for ambari server

HTTPS configuration for ambari server

Explorer

Hi @Jay Kumar SenSharma

In regards to your link:

https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/39865/enabling-https-for-ambariserver-and-troubleshootin....

I have configured https for my ambari -server, but when opening ambari Ui in the web browser, it shows connection not secure. Can you help me to fix this issue?

I have 3 certificates- server certificate, intermediate certificate and root certificate.

Please provide the screenshot of the error.

Also let us know if you receive any error or exception?

You might see the message "This connection is not secure" because you are using Self Signed Certificates which are good for testing but not suitable for production Because the selfsigned certificates are not trusted (not sighed by CA Certificate Authority).

.

So you can still use the HTTPS with the salf signed certificate for your testing without any issues and ignore the browser message for now until unless you really need a "CA Signed Certificate" for your ambari.

The message is harmless and can be ignored (as we are using Self signed certificates). But still if you want to fix it from browser side then please refer to:

It throws an exception, need to add it to the exception list to access it.

When enable https options comes up, we just need to upload the server cert out of the three certs in the keystore, right?
