OpsMgr 2012 R2 Web Console SSL


  1. Windows 2012 R2
  2. Operations Manager 2012 R2 (Single Server Installation)

This post describes the steps necessary to configure the System Center 2012 R2 – Operations Manager Web Console to use SSL. Prior to configuring the web console to use SSL, ensure the console connective works via the http connection.

Great! Now we are sure the web console is working. Time to proceed. The next step is to request the certificate from the server that has the Web Console role installed. Start by opening Internet Information Services (IIS). Once IIS is open, click on Server Certificates.

From the Actions pane click Create Domain Certificate.

The Create Certificate window will open. Fill in the fields. Click Next.

Click Select to specify an online certification Authority.

Select the certificate authority you want to use. Click OK.

The Specify Online Certification Authority filed now contains the Certification Authority you selected. Specify a Friendly name. Click Finish.

You should now see the certificate.

Now that the certificate has been successfully created, you will need to adjust the bindings within IIS. Select the site that contains the Web Console. Select Bindings.

The Bindings window will open. Click Add.

Under Type select https. Ensure the port is 443. Select the SSL certificate. Click OK.

Verify the Site Bindings now contains https. Click Close.

Now we will need to setup IIS to require SSL connections. From the Default Web Site select SSL Settings.

Select Require SSL. From the Actions pane, click Apply.

Almost done. Open the Operations Manager Console. Click on the Administration pane. Click on Web Address. The Global Management Group Settings – Web Addresses window will open. Select https://.

Click Test.

You Site is now secure.


If you did not get the Console above and actually got the screen below, uninstall the Web Console component and reinstall.
