Python HTTPS connection




I am having some issues to work with the python API to connect to the controllers. So far I was connecting using a cluster account. I am using Python 3.4 on a CENTOS 7.2 server using 5.4P1 MNSDK. 

While opening a HTTPS connection I get: 


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 304, in <module>
File "", line 275, in GetSnapshotsList
raise StorageException("query failed: reason %s error number: %s ", resp.results_reason(),resp.results_errno())
__main__.StorageException: ('query failed: reason %s error number: %s ', '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:600)', 13001)


On the controllers I have a self-signed certificate. This error is despite I dont want to do an host or server verification: NaServer methods:


def is_server_cert_verification_enabled(self):

def is_hostname_verification_enabled(self):


return false.


I have solved the first problem adding the selfsigned certificate to my CA chain. 

Now I try to connect to the vserver management IP, and I get:


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 306, in <module>
File "", line 274, in GetSnapshotsList
resp=self.server_zapi.invoke("snapshot-list-info", "volume", self.volume["name"])

File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/", line 289, in match_hostname
% (hostname, dnsnames[0]))
ssl.CertificateError: hostname '' doesn't match 'vs2sx50'


Again I dont want to do any SSL verification. Is no otherway that to create a certificate (and DNS entry) with the vs2sx50 (this is my vserver name) on it?


Thank you.



Have you tried 


import ssl
ssl._create_default_https_context = ssl._create_unverified_context

to disable certificate verification?


Thank you! Indeed this solves the issue.
