Server Security File

Server Security File

Security information is maintained in an optional text file on the server system. The file stores unencrypted user names and unencrypted passwords, therefore, the file must be kept in a secure directory.

When user names and passwords are entered on the Administration and Monitoring utility program (the client), they are encrypted for delivery to the server. The server decrypts the user names and passwords to verify authorized access to the ServeRAID controller. If the verification is successful, the ServeRAID controller accepts commands from the client. If no security file is present in the default directory or the directory specified by the -s parameter, the ServeRAID controller disables security and accepts commands from any client connection.

The security file contains one user name and password combination per line. The user name and password strings are separated by a colon (:), and each string can have a maximum of eight characters.

Server Utility Name Resolution: The server utility program relies on name resolution to determine the host name from the client that is trying to connect. When a client is trying to access a remote server, the server tries to look up the name of the connecting client. The method used to look up the name is determined by the configuration of the server. Some possible methods for this are Domain Name Servers (DNS) or HOSTS files. With certain configurations, some timing delays might occur due to misconfiguration or inability to access the DNS. If problems occur, check the network configuration.
