Provider followed instructions to enable SSL and authentication for XMLRPC.
However, xmlrpcd_auth does not start after executing configure.pl script:
[root@pba55 bm]# /etc/init.d/xmlrpcd_auth restart -bash: /etc/init.d/xmlrpcd_auth: No such file or directory
Bug PBA-55458 was submitted to address this issue.
The issue was fixed in PBA-E 5.5.5. Please upgrade to the latest version of PBA-E.
If upgrade is not possible at the moment use the following instructions to enable SSL and authentication for XMLRPC:
Generate SSL certificate and private key
/usr/local/bm/etc/ssm.conf.d/xmlrpcd_auth.confwith the following content:
[environment] ATMName = XMLRPC_Auth_Container AuthorizationRequired = 1 SslPrivateKey = PATH_TO_PRIVATE_KEY_FILE SslCertificate = PATH_TO_CERTIFICATE_FILE Threads = 5 [options] bin = xmlrpcd bindir = $(st_prefix)/$(_bindir_name) summary = Stellart XML RPC AUTH Server arguments = $(HOST_IP):5225
Run the following command:
SSMROOT=/usr/local/bm /usr/local/stellart/bin/ssm install -f xmlrpcd_auth
After following these steps you should be able to send API requests to https://HOST_IP:5225.
If you want xmlprcd_auth to listen on all IP address assigned to host then on step #2 you should change line
arguments = $(HOST_IP):5225
arguments = 0.0.0.0:5225
and configure firewall to accept requests on port 5225 only from trusted IP addresses/subnets.
