Configuring Web Server roles

After you have created a Web Server role, you can configure user session time, usage statistics, the URL, port settings, and the SSL certificate for the Security Center Web Client.

What you should know

To modify a Web Server role:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
  2. Click the Web Server that you want to change.
  3. (Optional) From the Identity page:
    • Change the name of the role as it appears in Config Tool.
    • Assign the role to a different partition to restrict its use to certain user groups.
  4. Click the Properties tab.
  5. Configure the behavior of a user session, by doing one of the following:
    1. Set Unlimited session time to ON so that users remain logged on to Web Client as long as they keep their browser window open.
    2. Set Unlimited session time to OFF so that users are automatically signed out of Web Client after 12 hours of inactivity.
  6. If the default port settings conflict with other roles or applications on your system, set Use the default web ports of the server to OFF, and change the ports.
    By default, the HTTP port is 80 and the Secure HTTP port is 443.
  7. To change the URL used to access this Web Client, change the Web address.
    To see the URL, look under the Communication settings.
  8. Click Apply.
  9. Verify that the URL opens Security Center Web Client, by clicking the URL under Communication settings on the Properties page.
    If you are using the default self-signed certificate and it is not installed on your computer, your browser displays an error message. Proceed to the log on page by doing the following:
    • In Google Chrome, click Show Advanced, then click Proceed to ComputerName (unsafe)

    • In Internet Explorer, click Continue to this website (not recommended).
    The Security Center Web Client log on page appears.
  10. If you have multiple Web Server roles, move this role to its own expansion server.
  11. To add failover and load balancing for this Web Server role, add a standby server.
