vSphere VCSA: Cannot add a (http) https proxy


Hi,

with the VCSA Gui it is not possible to to enter a http proxy for https target URLs. An error: HTTPS Cannot connect to proxy server occurs.

The most linux tools accept http URLs in the HTTPS_PROXY variable and this also works with the VCSA.

It’s possible to bypass this check. Open a ssh connection and edit the file /etc/sysconfig/proxy and set HTTP_PROXY und HTTPS_PROXY.

# Enable a generation of the proxy settings to the profile.
# This setting allows to turn the proxy on and off while
# preserving the particular proxy setup.

save the file and reboot the VCSA appliance.

IMPORTEND: When setting https_proxy I highly recommend to also set the NO_PROXY variable because vCenter will try to reach some services of the ESXi host via proxy. This will usually fail. At your domains in the RegEx (.*.myDomain.org) syntax and also add your local subnets. See example config above. Otherwise you get some unexspected behaviours. For example the import of an OVF tempate fails with error: ThrowableProxy.cause A general system error occurred: Transfer failed: Invalid response code: 502, note that HTTP/s proxy is configured for the transfer.
