Sealed mode

When sealed mode is enabled, the following settings are automatically applied:

  • One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) cannot be accessed remotely via SSH for maintenance.

  • The root password of SPS cannot be changed in sealed mode.

  • It is not possible to upload or delete plugins in sealed mode.

  • Sealed mode can be disabled only from the local console. For details, see Disabling sealed mode.

To enable sealed mode use one of the following methods:

  • Select the Sealed mode option during the Welcome Wizard.

  • Select Basic Settings > System > Sealed mode > Activate sealed mode on the SPS web interface.

  • Log in to SPS as root using SSH or the local console, and select Sealed mode > Enable from the console menu.

Disabling sealed mode

The event of disabling sealed mode is logged. The following describes how to disable sealed mode.

To disable sealed mode

  1. Go to the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) appliance and access the local console.

  2. Log in as root.

  3. From the console menu, select Sealed mode > Disable

  4. Select Back to Main menu > Logout.

Out-of-band management of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS)

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) 6.4 includes a dedicated out-of-band management interface conforming to the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) v2.0 standards. The IPMI interface allows system administrators to monitor the system health of SPS and to manage the computer events remotely, independently of the operating system of SPS. SPS is accessible using the IPMI interface only if the IPMI interface is physically connected to the network.

Note that the IPMI interface supports only 100Mbps Full-Duplex speed.

Basic information about the IPMI interface is available also on the SPS web interface on the Basic Settings > High Availability page. The following information is displayed:

Figure 112: Basic Settings > High Availability — Information about the IPMI interface SPS

  • Hardware serial number: The unique serial number of the appliance.

  • IPMI IP address: The IP address of the IPMI interface.

  • IPMI subnet mask: The subnet mask of the IPMI interface.

  • IPMI default gateway: The address of the default gateway configured for the IPMI interface.

  • IPMI IP address source: Shows how the IPMI interface receives its IP address: dynamically from a DHCP server, or it uses a fixed static address.

Configuring the IPMI interface from the console

The following describes how to modify the network configuration of IPMI from the console of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS).

Prerequisites

SPS is accessible using the IPMI interface only if the IPMI interface is physically connected to the network. For details on connecting the IPMI interface, see "Installing the SPS hardware" in the Installation Guide.

Caution:

IPMI searches for available network interfaces during boot. Make sure that IPMI is connected to the network through the dedicated Ethernet interface before SPS is powered on.

Caution: SECURITY HAZARD!

The IPMI interface, like all out-of-band management interfaces, has known vulnerabilities that One Identity cannot fix or have an effect on. To avoid security hazards, One Identity recommends that you only connect the IPMI interface to well-protected, separated management networks with restricted accessibility. Failing to do so may result in an unauthorized access to all data stored on the SPS appliance. Data on the appliance can be unencrypted or encrypted, and can include sensitive information, for example, passwords, decryption keys, private keys, and so on.

For more information, see Best Practices for managing servers with IPMI features enabled in Datacenters.

NOTE:

The administrator of SPS must be authorized and able to access the IPMI interface for support and troubleshooting purposes in case vendor support is needed.

The following ports are used by the IPMI interface:

  • Port 623 (UDP): IPMI (cannot be changed)

  • Port 5123 (UDP): floppy (cannot be changed)

  • Port 5901 (TCP): video display (configurable)

  • Port 5900 (TCP): HID (configurable)

  • Port 5120 (TCP): CD (configurable)

  • Port 80 (TCP): HTTP (configurable)

To modify the network configuration of IPMI from the console of SPS

  1. Use the local console (or SSH) to log in to SPS as root.

  2. Choose Shells > Boot shell.

  3. Check the network configuration of the interface:

    # ipmitool lan print

    This guide assumes that channel 1 is used for LAN. If your setup differs, adjust the following commands accordingly.

  4. Configure the interface. You can use DHCP or configure a static IP address manually.

    Use an IPv4 address.

    • To use DHCP, enter the following command:

      # ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc dhcp

    • To use static IP, enter the following command:

      # ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc static

      Set the IP address:

      # ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr <IPMI-IP>

      Set the netmask:

      # ipmitool lan set 1 netmask <IPMI-netmask>

      Set the IP address of the default gateway:

      # ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr <gateway-IP>

  5. Configure IPMI to use the dedicated Ethernet interface.

    • On the N1000, T1, T4, and T10 appliances, issue the following command:

      # ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0xc 1 0

    • On the 1000d and 10000 appliances, issue the following command:

      # ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0xc 1 1 0

  6. Verify the network configuration of IPMI:

    # ipmitool lan print 1

    Use a browser to connect to the reported network address.

  7. Change the default password:

    1. Log in to the IPMI web interface using the default login credentials (username: ADMIN, password: ADMIN or changeme, depending on your hardware).

      NOTE:

      The login credentials are case sensitive.

    2. Navigate to Configure > Users.

    3. Select ADMIN, and choose Modify User.

    4. Change the password, and save the changes with Modify.
