When you use HTTPS in the remote URL, use the -validate-certification option to enable or disable digital certificate validation. Certificate validation is disabled by default.

Note

The web server to which you are uploading the configuration backup file must have PUT operations enabled for HTTP and POST operations enabled for HTTPS. Some web servers might require the installation of an additional module. For more information, see your web server’s documentation. Supported URL formats vary by ONTAP release. See the command line help for your ONTAP version.
