Hide / Suppress “Protocol cannot be switched to HTTPS; HTTPS is not configured/active”; “No switch to HTTPS occured, so it is not secure to send a password”

Tip: Hide Suppress warning “No switch to HTTPS occurred, so it is not secure to send a password” on login screen.

  • Is turning it off safe. Well for internal non-productive systems  clean-text Ethernet “password sniffers” may not be worth the efforts of the CIA or even bored internal staff.
  • Naturally for external facing systems and any production system, https should always be used.  To enable See Note 1527879 which refers to this document
  • Further information in note 1590454
