Foglight settings

Foglight can run with its default settings. Edit these settings if you need to change run-time parameters such as settings for running the Management Server in High Availability (HA) mode or the ports that the Management Server uses. Many Foglight settings can be changed by editing the file <foglight_home>/config/server.config, which contains settings.

For more details, see these topics:

Editing the server.config file

Editing the server.config file

The <foglight_home>/config/server.config file contains parameters for port settings, virtual memory, command-line options, and server federation. You can edit the file using a text editor. Values within quotation marks can be edited.

Setting up an encrypted LDAP connection with SSL

Use the following instructions if you need to encrypt communication between the Management Server and the LDAP server.

Acquire the LDAP server certificate in .pem format from the administrator.
Import the certificate into the Management Server keystore, <foglight_home>/jre/lib/security/cacerts (default password: changeit), with the following command:
<foglight_home>/jre/bin/keytool -J-server ‑import ‑file <path_to_cert_file> ‑alias ldapsvrcert ‑keystore <path_to_cacerts> ‑storepass <store_pwd>
On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, click Administration > Users & Security > Directory Services Settings.

Using encryption when sending email from Foglight

You can use encryption when sending email from Foglight. To do so, you must enable Foglight to use the SSL protocol and configure the mail server used by Foglight to use an SSL certificate that is not self-signed.

You can configure Foglight to use the SSL protocol either on the Email Configuration Dashboard or by editing the related mail.use.ssl registry variable. See the Administration and Configuration Help for more information.

See the documentation for your mail server for information about configuring it to use an SSL certificate.
