Configuring Cassandra Authentication

The Commvault software supports all the Cassandra authentication options.

You can use any of the following Cassandra authentication options with the Commvault software:

  • CQL and JMX configured without SSL
  • CQL or JMX configured without SSL
  • SSL configured only on the CQL interface
  • SSL configured only on the JMX interface
  • SSL configured on the CQL and JMX interfaces

You can customize your authentication settings by using additional settings in conjunction with client options.

Procedure

JMX and/or CQL without SSL

If you do not use SSL, then you only need to configure the JMX and/or CQL options on the client. For information on how to set the values, see Online Help - Cassandra Authentication Settings.

JMX and CQL with SSL

If SSL is configured with both the JMX and CQL interfaces, then configure, the SSL interface, the JMX interface, and the CQL interface. For more information, see Online Help - Cassandra Authentication Settings and Online Help - Cassandra SSL Configurations.

SSL Configured only on the CQL Interface

For this configuration, add an additional setting that disables SSL on the JMX interface, and then configure the CQL and SSL options.

  1. To each Cassandra node client in the Cassandra cluster, add the nCassandraJmxSslDisabled additional settings as shown in the following table.

    For instructions on how to add additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.
