Webconsole and DSEE

Just did the install of JES on Solaris x86. The online docs miss a step that is important. You should check to make sure the web console is running. You can do this by issuing /usr/sbin/smcwebserver start.

Also make sure your url has https:// not http:// in it. You will prolong the greying of your hair.
Comments:

http://<host>:6788
https://<host>:6789
/etc/webconsole/console/config.properties
I'm not sure how authoritative that file is. netstat -an was telling me that ports 6788 & 6789 were open ONLY for localhost even though the config file was saying that only 6788 was. (localhost means you must be running your web browser on localhost and have localhost in your url) So, I ran the commands below.
# svqccfg -s svc:/system/webconsole setprop options/tcp_listen = true
# svcadm refresh svc:/system/webconsole
Well, the refresh didn't fix it. I needed to stop and start smcwebserver
#smcwebserver stop
#smcwebserver start
At this point, I was able to access both ports remotely. Now, that is not the desired outcome since you may still want to restrict http to "localhost".
It worth noting, this was on build 63 of Open Solaris.....

Same issues on Solaris 10, I can also access the console from any host. Side thought. Its Tomcat. So one would think that Tomcat security rules should apply here.

Thanks for this ... I couldn't work out how to enable access to the console from anything other than local host. The cryptic:

svqccfg -s svc:/system/webconsole setprop options/tcp_listen = true

Was exactly what I needed!
