Configuring the CTPView Administrative Settings
This topic provides an overview of configuring CTPView administrative settings. You must configure these settings when you receive a new CTPView server and after you install or upgrade the CTPView server operating system (OS) or the CTPView software. Many of the settings provide better access security for your CTP network. Juniper Networks recommends that you perform some of the following tasks at least every year; details are in the task.
To configure the administrative settings:
If the CTPView server is new, prepare the server for configuring the administrative settings.
Change the default password used to access the BIOS menu.
Change the default password for the server’s default user account.
Change the default password for the server’s root account.
Change the default password used to access the GRUB Boot Loader menu.
Change the default password for the MySQL server Apache user account.
Change the default password for the MySQL server Root user account.
Configure the server to operate on your network.
Create a self-signed Web certificate.
Enable OpenSSL authentication by creating and importing a self-signed Web certificate.
Update the CTPView software to ensure that you have the latest features.
Verify that you can log in to the CTPView GUI from your Web browser.
Change the default password for the CTPView GUI default user account.
Create at least one global administrative account to access the CTPView Admin Center in the CTPView GUI.
Configure the hostnames as fully qualified domain names (FQDNs), as necessary, for your network needs. See Configuring Subdomains in Hostnames (CTPView Server Menu).
