Disabling the HTTP Server

Disabling the HTTP Server

This chapter contains the following sections:

Information About the HTTP Server

An HTTP server, which can be turned off from the CLI to address security concerns, is embedded in the Virtual Supervisor Module (VSM).

Guidelines and Limitations for the HTTP Server

  • The HTTP server is enabled by default.
  • The VMware Update Manager (VUM) does not install Virtual Ethernet Modules (VEMs) if the HTTP server is disabled. During VEM installation, VUM talks directly to the HTTP server to extract required module information from the VSM. To install VEMs, you must do one of the following:
    • Use the VUM by enabling the HTTP server during VEM installation, and then disabling it after the VEMs are installed.
    • Install VEMs manually without using the VUM
  • The HTTP server must be enabled in order to get the Cisco Nexus 1000V XML plugin from the VSM.

Default Settings for the HTTP Server

The HTTP server is enabled by default.
