Verifying the HTTPS binding

ITMS Installation and Upgrade

Before you perform this step, ensure that you have added bindings to a website for establishing an HTTPS binding.

See Creating an HTTPS binding

After you have created an HTTPS binding, you must verify that the selected website uses the HTTPS binding that you specified. You can open the website's default page in a Web browser using the selected HTTPS binding.

To verify the HTTPS binding for a website

  1. Log on to the Notification Server computer as an administrator.

  2. On the Start menu, click Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  3. From the list of different server sites in the left pane, select the required website.

  4. Under the Browse Web site area, click Browse *:443 (https).

  5. In the Internet Explorer page for the selected website, select Continue to this website (not recommended).

    Internet Explorer shows an error page because the self-signed certificate was issued from the computer where you installed the IT Management Suite solutions and not from a trusted certification authority. The Internet Explorer trusts the SSL certificate if you add the certificate to the list of Trusted Root Certification Authorities. The SSL certificate can be added as a trusted certificate in the certificates store on the local computer, or in Group Policy for the domain.

  6. Verify that the IP address of the website which appears in the Internet Explorer starts with https://.

The next step is to configure your Notification Server and Symantec Management Agents to use HTTPS.
