accept.unverified.certificates

Internal Use Only

This property definition is visible to Confluence users in the "Hyperic Members" group — not to other site visitors.

Description

This property controls whether or a warning is issued when a Hyperic Agent presents an SSL certificate that is not in the server's keystore and is either self-signed or signed by a different CA than the one that signed the the server's SSL certificate.

Under these circumstances, if accept.unverified.certificates=false, as it is by default, this warning is issued:

 
The server to agent communication channel is using a self-signed certificate and could not be verified
Are you sure you want to continue connecting? [default=no]: yes 

If you respond "yes", the server imports the agents's certificate, and will trust it henceforth.

Note that if accept.unverified.certificates is "true", the server automatically accepts and imports the certificate presented by a Hyperic Agent, and does not issue a warning if an agent presents a certificate that the server does not trust.

Do NOT set accept.unverified.certificates=true unless ALL agents reporting to the Hyperic Server have been upgraded to Hyperic 4.6.
