System Manager login fails with http error

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • OnCommand System Manager (integrated)


  • cannot access System Manager UI
  • can't login in OnCommand System Manager
  • when enabling http you can get logs from SPI
  • since we have a http forwarding to https on the UI it cannot work that way on System Manager UI
  • The issue is clearly that ssl is not working
  • in the apache logs we find:
