Importing a PKCS #12 (pfx) format certificate

If you have an existing SSL certificate and you want to use this certificate in Tomcat, follow the steps below to import this SSL certificate.

NOTE: This certificate must be provided in the PKCS #12 (pfx) format. If the certificate and private key are saved in separate files, run the following command to merge them to the PKCS12 format:
openssl pkcs12 -export -in <certfile> -inkey <keyfile> -out <keystorefile> -name tomcat -CAfile <cacertfile> -caname root
1
Delete the existing tomcat certificate from the tomcat.keystore directory using the following command:

On the Management Server, open the <foglight_home>/server/tomcat/server.xml file for editing.

In the server.xml file, locate the following Connector element and add keyPass and keyAlias parameters at the end:

Setting the length of Foglight sessions

You can configure the length of inactive Foglight browser interface sessions by changing the value of the parameter server.console.session.timeout. This parameter controls the length of time that Foglight waits before automatically logging you out of an idle browser interface session.

1
Stop the Management Server. Open the file <foglight_home>\config\server.config on the Management Server machine. Set the parameter server.console.session.timeout to the desired value in minutes.
The default value is 60 minutes. If you set the value to less than or equal to 0, or greater than 30000000, Foglight never logs you out of the browser interface, regardless of how long the session has been inactive.
2
Save the server.config file.

HP patch checking tool

If your external database is installed on an HP-UX server, HP provides a tool for ensuring that all the patches required to run Java® on HP-UX are installed.

The tool is available from:

http://www.hp.com/go/java

To use the tool, issue the following command:

Uninstalling Foglight

You can uninstall Foglight using the uninstaller utility for your platform. The uninstaller can be found in <foglight_home>/UninstallerData.

The default mode for the uninstaller is the graphical user interface (GUI) mode. In cases where a graphics display is not available on UNIX® systems, the Foglight uninstaller can be run from the command line by using console mode or silent mode. Console mode is available only for Linux® and Solaris.

2
Navigate to the UninstallerData directory of your Foglight installation and run the Uninstall_Foglight shell script.
Linux® and Solaris only: To launch the uninstaller in console mode, run the UninstallFoglight shell script using the following command:
./Uninstall_Foglight -i console
To launch the uninstaller in silent mode, run the Uninstall_Foglight shell script using the following command:
./Uninstall_Foglight -i silent -f installvariables.properties
3
After uninstallation, you can safely delete the <foglight_home> directory. It is recommended that you do so, since the uninstaller does not remove certain directories within <foglight_home>.
