In Gathering Inventory (on-premises 2021R1), it is said that adopted and agent 3rd deployment support HTTPS for UNIX targets. But only agent 3rd deployment has guidance to do that.
What about adopted? Does it support HTTPS for UNIX targets? And how can I configure that?
Thank you for your support.
Thanks for your reply.
I've followed the link for Agent third-party deployment. But the problem is about Adopted for UNIX target, it cannot communicate with beacon through HTTPS although the cert is imported.
And is there anyway to deploy the cert of beacon to targets (both Windows and UNIX) automatically?
Are you talking here about the adoption procedure whereby a beacon connects to a target device running a UNIX-like operating system using ssh, and then remotely runs a process that downloads then installs the agent components?
That particular process is unable to using HTTPS to download the agent components to be installed - only HTTP can be used. The libraries that would be required in the adoption component to implement HTTPS across all supported platforms are very large, and so are not included/supported in that component.
If you want to deliver the files required to install the agent to devices over HTTPS then you would have to use some other software deployment mechanism that supports HTTPS on the particular operating system(s) that you're working with.
