Troubleshooting SSL validation for self-signed certificates 

Set ssl_validate to False if you use a self-signed certificate and experience difficulty connecting to a DataStax Enterprise cluster.

cluster_name.conf 

The location of the cluster_name.conf file depends on the type of installation:

  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/clusters/cluster_name.conf
  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/clusters/cluster_name.conf

Set ssl_validate to False if you use a self-signed certificate and experience difficulty connecting to a DataStax Enterprise cluster.

Procedure

  1. Open cluster_name.conf for editing.
    [cassandra]
    username =
    ssl_ca_certs = .cer file location
    ssl_validate = False
  2. Restart OpsCenter.
