Configuring Cloud-enabled Management Site Server Settings policy

ITMS Installation and Upgrade

The process of setting up HTTPS communication between site servers, and Cloud-enabled agents or intranet agents is now automated. Cloud-enabled Management Site Server Settings policy delivers SSL certificates, signed by master certificate from Notification Server, to site servers. If Internet Information Services (IIS) on the site server computer has no HTTPS binding, the binding is created, assigning the new certificate.

Cloud-enabled Management Site Server Settings policy is enabled by default. Force overwrite HTTPs binding is disabled by default.

Policy processing actions depend on the policy details and IIS configuration of the site server. The differences are explained in the following table:
