You can enable an HTTP connection in App Volumes Manager after you have installed the manager.

About this task

You must edit the Nginx configuration file and add a server block to enable HTTP in App Volumes Manager.

Prerequisites

Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\CloudVolumes\Manager\nginx\conf and take a back up of the existing Nginx configuration file, nginx.conf.

Procedure

  1. Log in as administrator to the machine where App Volumes Manager is installed.
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\CloudVolumes\Manager\nginx\conf, open the Nginx configuration file, and copy the following block in the Nginx file after include proxy/vcenter*.conf;.
    server {
            server_name  0.0.0.0;
            listen       80;
