Alert Can't connect https, but can curl from collector


Got an issue where getting a status "5", can't connect on https-443 to a web server on AWS EC2.  But can connect to https site from public browser and using curl from the collector, without issue.

Running diagnostics through LM shows a timeout. The "Poll Now" data looks fine except Normal Datapoints shows errors.  These errors cannot be confirmed.

It does look like it's not able to communicate with the web server. Status 5 is "Network error" and it isn't showing any content or headers. Have you tried using the debug console !http command to see what it shows? It supports using https as a url. Do you have a proxy? I don't think LM collector will look at the windows/IE proxy settings while other software might.

Very odd, was your "HTTPS-" DataSource modified? Perhaps worth checking the Repository if there is an updated version of or difference in that DataSource from core.

Otherwise I would dig thru the wrapper and other collector logs or reach out to LM support.

I had the same issue and was able to resolve it with the following steps:

1. Open ServerManager in host
2. Add Roles and Features
3. Before You Begin...Next,
4. Install Type...Next,
5. Server Selection...Next,
6. Select Web Server (IIS) > Select Add Features...Next
7. Web Server Role (IIS)...Next
8. Roles Services...Next
9. Confirmation...Install

10. Select the new IIS option from Left Pane > Right click your server name > Internet Information Services Manager

11. Expand hostname > Right click Default Website > Edit Bindings > Add > type: Https > SSL Certificate: My ADFS Cert > close.

12. Right click Default Web Site > Manage Website > Start

13. Go to your LMportal > ADFS Host > HTTPS-443 > Raw Data > poll now.
