    SSL with multiple jboss instances

    semama1 Newbie


      I sent this message Installation&Configuration forum two weeks ago, but I haven't got any replies..

      I'm using jboss 3.2.2 with tomcat.

      I've succeeded to run multiple jboss instances on one machine and accessing jmx-console using http but not by using https.

      When I run one instance (default) of jboss I have succeeded to configure SSL right and can access jmx-console using both http and https.

      Here is the configuring I've used (jboss/server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml):

      <Connector className = "org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector"
       address="" port = "8443" scheme = "https" secure = "true">
       <Factory className = "org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteServerSocketFactory"
       protocol = "TLS"/>

      I have used exactly the same configuration for the different jboss instances (changend the port numbers), but as I said earlier haven't been able to access the jmx-console using https. I don't even get any log to the access-log file. How will I configure jboss to listen to the https port when running multiple instances?

      What have I missed? In sample-bindings.xml that I used for running multiple instances of jboss, the http port is defined (per instance), should the https port be defined in that file as well? How?

          haven't been able to access the jmx-console using https - What exactly do you mean, do you get any errors from the web browser?

          Do you know if JBoss is listening on the ports you have configured? (netstat -an)

            I actually managed to solve this..

            In sample-bindings.xml file there are rows written in xsl that fix the configuration of the ports in tomcat (i'm not that familiar with xsl). What I did was that I uncommented these rows which resulted in that the jboss-service.xml file (in deploy/jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF directory) is used with the ports that i configured and now i can access the webapplication with https aswell.

            Now I'll try to figure out how to use xsl so that all the used ports can be defined by using the sample-bindings.xml file.
