Disable global settings for certificate checking

By default, HPE OneView validates the security of its HTTPS communications by validating digital certificates. Use this procedure to disable these certificate checks appliance-wide.

Never use HPE OneView enterprise directory integration features when certificate checking is disabled. Use only local user accounts.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that certificates only be disabled in environments where security is not important (for example, certain test environments). When certificate checking is turned off (disabled), certificates are not validated by HPE OneView as trustworthy, and all device and user login credentials are transmitted over the network insecurely, making your environment subject to attacks.
