Changing Server Security Settings

If you choose to change security settings after installing the Service Virtualization Server, you must manually edit the HP.SV.StandaloneServer.exe.config configuration file. The file is located in the <HPE Service Virtualization Server installation directory>\Server\bin subdirectory. By default, the Server installation path is C:\Program Files\HPE\HPE Service Virtualization Server. In the system.serviceModel configuration section, you must edit the settings for the exposed REST management service.

This section includes:

REST management service configuration for disabled authentication

To disable authentication, set the following:

  1. Under the restManagementServiceConfiguration element, set the aclEnabled attribute to false.
  2. Make sure that the url attribute contains the HTTP address. We recommended using port with the default value, 6080.
  3. After reconfiguration, restart the Service Virtualization Server.
  4. To enable the new configuration, you must redirect all of your projects to the updated URL. For details, see the section on how to change servers in the Service Virtualization User Guide or the Service Virtualization Help Center (http://admhelp.microfocus.com/sv/en/latest).
