IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Enable Secure Socket Layer at the data collector level

To enable SSL, enable Node Authentication first (See Node Authentication). SSL works only with Node Authentication enabled.

Configuration with default options involves setting one property to true to operate the data collector in SSL mode:

  1. In the DC_home/runtime/app_server_version.node_name.server_name/custom/datacollector_custom.properties file, set the following property to true by removing the comment symbol (#) in front of the property definition (by default, this property is commented out).
    comm.use.ssl.dc=true

  2. Restart the application server.

On the managing server only the Kernel-related changes need to be enabled other managing server components are enabled automatically.
