Restart http services 6510

    ​I have a 6510 which I cannot manage over http either from BNA or web interface (issue occurred after an upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1).  I can putty to it.  How do I restart http services on it without power cycling?

    I had the same situation after I upgrade Lenovo Flex System switches to 8.1.
    I generate a new certificate which fixes the problem.

    seccertutil generate -https -keysize 2048 -hash sha256 -type rsa -years 5

    1. Log into the switch as root (not admin) and
    2. execute /fabos/libexec/webdconfigure and answer 'yes' to the HTTP Restart question.


                   switch:root> /fabos/libexec/webdconfigure

                   http attributes (yes, y, no, n): yes

                             HTTP Restart (yes, y, no, n): yes

                             HTTP enabled (yes, y, no, n):

                             ErrorLog Enabled (yes, y, no, n):

                             AccessLog Enabled (yes, y, no, n):

                             SSLLog Enabled (yes, y, no, n):

                             HTTP Port: (1..60000)

                             Secure HTTP Port: (1..60000)

                             HTTP IsAlive Check Enabled (yes, y, no, n):

                             HTTP Max HeapSize: (256..1024)

                   webtools attributes (yes, y, no, n):

                   cal attributes (yes, y, no, n):


                   switch:root> ps -ef | grep http

                   root     23369     1  0 10:08 ?        00:00:00 /usr/apache/bin/httpd.0 -f /fabos/webtools/bin/httpd.conf.0

    ​Just a follow up, found out what the issue is, as I couldn't start https.  When you upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1 if you dont have the cert chain set up it wipes https certs.  Had to reimport issuer/root cert plus identity cert.  Thanks all for your responses.
