|Name||A description of the node.|
|Host||Hostname or IP address: The node's hostname or IP
address. For remote nodes, use the IP address or resolvable host
name. For a local host (Shares and Enterprise Server are installed
on the same machine), the hostname is localhost.
Note: When adding a local node multiple times, you must ensure each node uses localhost as the host.
Port: The node's HTTPS port (as configured in aspera.conf). The port field represents the port on which the node service is running. The default is 9092.
Path: The path field is an advanced feature used for URL Proxy operations. In nearly all cases, you may leave this field blank.
|API Username||The node API username associated with the transfer user on the node machine.|
|API Password||The node API password associated with the transfer user on the node machine.|
|Use SSL||Shares requires SSL to be enabled, so this must be selected.
Nodes may use an Aspera pre-installed and self-signed certificate
or your own certificate. To generate a new certificate, see IBM
Aspera Enterprise Server Admin Guide: Installing SSL
Note: After generating a new certificate, you must create a cert.pem file that contains the private key and the certificate. To do so, copy and paste the entire body of the key and cert files into a single text file. Then save the file as filename_cert.pem.
|Verify SSL Certificate||
To verify the SSL certificate, select this checkbox.
If the node's SSL certificate is not recognized by the Certifcate Authority (CA), Shares displays the following error message at the top of the page when you try to add the node: "Status: Not pingable. Internal error. (Error-35)".
If the node is using the default self-signed SSL certificate provided by Aspera, the certificate is not recognized by any CA. You must clear the Verify SSL Certificate option.
|Timeout||Sets the number of seconds Shares will wait for this node to respond to a request.|
|Open Timeout||Sets the number of seconds Shares will wait for the connection to this node to open.|
|Bytes free - warn||Issues a warning message when the node has equal to or less than a specified number of storage bytes free. You can enter the number as G, MB, terrabytes, and bytes.|
|Percent free - warn||Issues a warning message when the node has equal to or less than a specified percent of its storage free.|
|Bytes free - error||Issues an error message when the node has equal to or less than a specified number of storage bytes free. You can input the number as G, MB, terrabytes, and bytes.|
|Percent free - error||Issues an error message when the node has equal to or less than a specified percent of its storage free.|
The node now appears on your Home page under Nodes.
