security key-manager external modify-server

Modify key server properties

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the advanced privilege level.

Description

This command modifies configuration information for configured key management servers. When modifying a key management server from the external key manager associated with the admin Vserver, you must run the same command specifying the same set of parameters on the peer cluster. When modifying a key management server from a data Vserver, you can run the security key-manager external modify-server command on the active cluster only as the command is replicated on the peer cluster. However, if the password associated with a key management server is modified, then you must run the security key-manager external modify-server command specifying the same password on the peer cluster as the password is not replicated between clusters. This command is supported only when external key manager has been enabled for the given Vserver.

Examples

The following example modifies the I/O timeout to 45 seconds for Vserver cluster-1, key server keyserver1.local:

cluster-1::*> security key-manager modify-server -vserver cluster-1 -key-server keyserver1.local -timeout 45
        

The following example modifies the username and passphrase used to authenticate with key server keyserver1.local:

cluster-1::*> security key-manager modify-server -vserver cluster-1 -key-server keyserver1.local -username ksuser
