Dear all, i hope you all are in good health. I am in a big trouble in administrating my ArcGIS Server 10.3.1. I have configured the communication protocol from HTTP to HTTPS without "Enabling SSL on ArcGIS Server". Now i cannot login to arcgis server and my browser is also showing me "

This page can’t be displayed

Turn on SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to again."

I tried several ways but cannot login to server. Please anyone give me a solution without uninstalling the server.

Thanks

Hello Muqit,

In IIS Manager,

1) Create a self-signed certificate.

2) Bind the certificate with port 443 (https)

Now try accessing the URL. Configure web-adaptor, if required.

Hello Mr Jayanta, thanks for your advice. I am doing so, and did before as well but could not solve the issue.

Thanks

Are you getting this message when trying to log into Manager? Have you tried logging in as the primary  site administer account?  You can reset this password if you forgot it

Hello Rebecca, I cannot go inside the admin or any service as i changed the protocol to HTTPS. So I must have to do something outside from the server.

Thanks

I did something similar, if memory serves me correct. There wasn't a way to fix this without modifying some server config files - let me see if I can dig those up...

Ok, try this:

1 )Stop server (Windows Services >> ArcGIS Server)

2) Make a back-up of the following config files:

X:\arcgisserver\config-store\security\security-config.json

X:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\framework\runtime\tomcat\conf\server.xml

3) Make changes to the config files:

X:\arcgisserver\config-store\security\security-config.json

"httpEnabled": false, = "httpEnabled": true,

X:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\framework\runtime\tomcat\conf\server.xml

set SSLEnabled="false"

I think that's what did it for me, though I'm not positive... If that doesn't work, you can try keeping SSL in the security config json file and set keyAlias="SelfSignedCertificate" for the <Connector> tag in the server config file

4) Restart ArcGIS Server in Windows Services

Thank you Chris. If you find anything sold instead of server uninstallation, please let me know.

Thanks

Muqit,

If you follow my instructions in my previous note, you will not need to uninstall server - you just need to stop and restart it in Windows Services.

Hello Chris,

Please have a look on my security-config.jason file

{

  "securityEnabled": true,

  "authenticationMode": "ARCGIS_TOKEN",

  "authenticationTier": "GIS_SERVER",

  "userStoreConfig": {

    "type": "BUILTIN",

    "properties": {}

  },

  "roleStoreConfig": {

    "type": "BUILTIN",

    "properties": {}

  },

  "sslEnabled": false,

  "httpEnabled": true,

  "virtualDirsSecurityEnabled": false,

  "allowDirectAccess": true

}

and the server xml

<!--

    <Connector maxHttpHeaderSize="65535" port="6443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="false"

               maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="false"

 

I did it, but still its not working.

thanks
