Unix Agent (standard deployment) - how to use SSLCACertificatePath

Hi Community,

by default a unix agent uses the following path "/var/opt/managesoft/etc/ssl/cert.pem" to check for SSL certificates. We would like to switch over from a dedicated file deployed via "mgsft_rollout_cert" to a certificate path where the Unix admin will maintain all certificated in a global way (based on the recommendations by Flexera, name of the file, ...).

https://docs.flexera.com/FlexNetManagerSuite2020R1/EN/GatherFNInv/index.html#SysRef/FlexNetInventory...

Is it sufficient to specify the parameters for the SSLCACertificatePath via mgsconfig and the agent will look into the second location too?

/opt/managesoft/bin/mgsconfig -i /var/tmp/tempconfig.ini
tempconfig.ini
[ManageSoft\Common\CurrentVersion]
SSLCACertificateFile=/opt/global_cert/cert-xxx.pem

 

Thanks and Best, Dennis

Please do test it, but I expect that the approach you have suggested of using mgsconfig to set the SSLCACertificateFile setting is likely to work.

If you do get a chance to test it to confirm, it would be great if you can report back here.
