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.

Importing self-signed certificates to Foglight TrustStore

Foglight needs to verify self-signed certificates. It is necessary to configure the TrustStore properly for encrypted database/LDAP connection.

Non-FIPS mode

In non-FIPS mode, to be compatible with former Foglight versions, Foglight uses JRE TrustStore as the default TrustStore. The default TrustStore will NOT be preserved during Foglight upgrade. Foglight also support a separate TrustStore, which will be preserved during upgrade. Choose the one that best suits your needs:

Option 1: Import the certificate into the embedded JRE TrustStore, <foglight_home>\jre\lib\security\cacerts (default password: changeit), with the following command:
<foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -file <path_to_cert_file> -alias <alias_of_cert> -keystore <foglight_home>\jre\lib\security\cacerts -storepass <store_pwd>
1
Prepare TrustStore: copy <foglight_home>\config\security\trust.keystore.sample to <foglight_home>\config\security\trust.keystore
2
Import the certificate into the Foglight TrustStore, <foglight_home>\ config\security\trust.keystore (default password: nitrogen), with the following command:
