Use SSL: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Configuration\Nsconfiguration
In most situations, these values get to set '80' and 'False' respectively when customers do an initial installation of the SMP without specifying HTTPS. When customers decide to use HTTPS they make the changes through the management console. The registry keys noted above DO NOT GET changed.
Because these keys are not changed after migrating to HTTPS the SBS server reads these values and communicates over HTTP causing communication to fail.
Note: Restarting SIM may cause the registry values to be changed back to port 80 and false after being changed.. This has not been 100% verified.
On the NS:
Open the registry using regedit
Change the registry keys to use the port and SSL settings desired
For HTTPS support:
Port: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Configuration\Nsconfiguration\NSWebSitePort : set to 443
Use SSL: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Configuration\Nsconfiguration: set to True
3. Open NBS General Settings through the management console and make any change.
4. The SBS server will update its configuration and the communication methods will be updated in the sbsconfiguration.xml file.
