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.

Enabling High Availability mode after installation

If you want to run Foglight in High Availability (HA) mode but did not select this option during installation, you can enable HA mode after installation by editing the file server.config. For more information, see the Foglight High Availability Field Guide.

Changing external database credentials

Use the following method to reconfigure Foglight to start up with a new database password. The password can be updated in the server.config file.

Open the server.config file.

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>
Root CA certificate: <foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias ldapsvrcert -keystore <path_to_cacerts> -storepass changeit -file <path_to_cert_file>
Intermediate CA certificate 1: <foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -alias ldapsvrcert2 -keystore <path_to_cacerts> -storepass changeit -file <path_to_cert_file>
Intermediate CA certificate 2: <foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -alias ldapsvrcert3 -keystore <path_to_cacerts> -storepass changeit -file <path_to_cert_file>
