Configuration is the last stage of building the Entuity server. You can run Configure at any time after installation to change the configuration, but ensure you have shut down ENA before doing so.
The wizard is only available on Windows. You can navigate between the pages in the configuration process at any time using Back and Next. You can re-run configuration by navigating to the Entuity install directory.
- When the install has reached 100%, you can click Run Configure. An administrative access permission window will open. Click Yes if you want to allow configure permission to carry out tasks such as installing the required services, otherwise click No.
- The next page allows you to confirm the server's registry setting. This setting extends the allowable ephemeral port range to the maximum allowed. This is necessary to allow ENA to communicate with large numbers of devices. Click Next.
- On the next page, set the location of the Database directory, Database Backup directory, and Log directory folders. Click Next.
- On the next page, select the license file to use. Click Next.
- On the next page, specify if you want to enable Integrated Flow Analyzer. This enables you to collect and analyze flow records. Note, you do not need to enable Integrated Flow Analyzer to run ENA, and it can be enabled at a later point. Click Next.
- On the next page, select which modules you want to use with ENA. Some of these modules require additional licensing. Click Next.
- On the next page, specify if you want to use Configuration Monitor in ENA. In Configuration Monitor, your network devices send configurations to the Transfer Server. Ensure that the transfer server IP is an address that your devices are able to route to. Click Next.
- On the next page, set up the details for SMTP Server Configuration. This configuration enables ENA to forward events, incidents and reports in an email. Note, your email server admin will need to whitelist the IP address of the Entuity server so that it can send emails.
- On the next page, configure the settings for the following, and then click Next.
- Server - hostname for the server. This must be resolvable in DNS.
- SSL Security Options - SSL security allows traffic between the Entuity web server and a user's browser to be secured using TLS v1.2.
- Database Password - the root password for the Database. You can change this or leave it as its default.
- Database Validation - specify if you want configure to check the database.
- On the next page, choose whether to use default or custom TCP ports for a number of services, such as the web server and Tomcat. Configure will warn you if any of these ports are in use and will allow you to select an alternative. Click Next.
- This will then open the summary page. If you are happy with the configuration settings, click Configure. Once the configure is complete, you will see a confirmation message at the bottom of the screen. Click Finish to close the configuration program.
