Issue/Introduction

For MOI, the use of TLS/SSL security was optional in pre- MOI 2.0.05 releases   In order to be able to check whether the TLS/SSL security is turned on or not, the steps in this document's resolution provide an easy way to check the status of TLS/SSL security in a MOI appliance. 

Environment

Release : 2.0

Component : MF OPERATIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Pre- MOI 2.0.05 releases

Resolution

Steps to check the TLS/SSL security setting for a MOI appliance:

1) Logon to the MOI appliance

2) cat /opt/moi/bin/plex.conf|grep APPLIANCE_OPT_SSL_ENABLED

 If the value of APPLIANCE_OPT_SSL_ENABLED displayed is equal to true, then TLS/SSL security is turned on for this MOI Appliance.  If TLS/SSL is turned on, HTTPS will need to be used in the MOI URL's  to access the MOI                                   appliance MPMUI and appliance controller MTCAC.   

 If the value of APPLIANCE_OPT_SSL_ENABLED displayed is equal to false, then TLS/SSL security is turned off for this MOI Appliance. If TLS/SSL is turned off, HTTP only be need to be used.
