What open source or free web servers are available to assist with system administration?

There's an article over in KB: https://kb.netapp.com/Advice_and_Troubleshooting/Miscellaneous/What_open_source_or_free_web_servers_are_available_to_assist_with_system_administration

 

What I've found useful, especially in air-gapped environments, is to use Python to run a quick-and-dirty web server, from a RHEL6 or RHEL7 host.

Python 2.x: python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Python 3.x: python -m http.server

 

To test:

curl http://localhost:8000/

 

This way, you get your software or patches uploaded to a NetApp or a FC switch and you don't have to bring in software from external sources and deal with the associated approval paperwork.

Added the python server to the KB. Thank you for the feedback.

 

FYI if you wish you can provide feedback directly and we have KDEs and the KB team who regularly monitor this.

 

Thank you so much!
