Registering a SafeGuard Enterprise Server that is located in a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

SafeGuard Enterprise Server

Operating systems
All supported Operating System versions.

What To Do

This applies to a scenario similar to this:

You have two SafeGuard Enterprise Servers:

Server #1 located in the internal network - hostname: SGNInt. This server is also running the SafeGuard Enterprise Management Center.
Server #2 located in a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) - hostname: SGNDMZ

  1. Copy SGMDMZ's certificate to a USB stick:
          ->default location: C:\Program Files\Sophos\SafeGuard Enterprise\MachCert
  2. Register the SGNDMZ Server in the SafeGuard Enterprise Management Center (running on SGNInt) using the cer file on the USB Stick: 
          -> Tools > Configuration Package Tool > Register Server > Add - browse to your *.cer file on the USB stick > OK
  3. Create the server configuration package for SGNDMZ (should now be available in the drop down box) and store it on the USB Stick: 
          -> change tab to Create Server Configuration Package > select SGNDMZ > specify output path > Create Configuration Package
  4. Install the server configuration msi package on SGNDMZ

Another thing to consider in such a scenario is, how the clients can reach the server in the DMZ. Depending on the name resolution you might need to register "SGNDMZ" twice (using the same certificate but a different hostname/FQDN/IP). When the client configuration package is created, the reachable option must be chosen.
