Completing the Symantec Mobility: Suite installation
You use the Configurator Wizard to complete the configuration of Symantec Mobility: Suite. The Configurator Wizard breaks the configuration into several sub-tasks:
Google Cloud Messaging
Use the following instructions to complete each sub-task:
Start the Configurator Wizard
Open a web browser and go to: http://<FullyQualifiedDomainName>:8000, where the FQDN is that of the machine that's hosting the Mobility Manager. On the displayed web page, click Start Wizard.
If you have problems loading the page, make sure any intervening firewalls are open to port 8000.
Add your SSL certificates for this installation.
If you plan on using this installation for multiple tenants, you must use a "wild-card" SSL certificate, because each tenant has it's own sub-domain.
On the Certificates screen, next to Handle SSL locally:, click Yes.
Browse to and select the SSL certificate you've procured for this installation.
Similarly, browse to and select the Key file and CA Bundle of intermediate certificates for the SSL certificate.
You configure the type of server registration, and provide registration details.
Under Will multiple companies be using this installation, click No for a single-tenant installation, or Yes for a multi-tenant installation.
If you clicked Yes in the previous step, Click Next. Otherwise, continue by filling in the rest of the form and then click Next.
Google Cloud Messaging (optional)
If you want to push messages to Android devices, you need to provide a GCM Project ID and GCM API key, which you obtain from Google. Enter your GCM information as indictated in the UI, and then click Next. Otherwise, click Next to skip the GCM configuration.
Enter the network address (IP or FQDN), port, DB name, and the user credentials for the primary database.
User cannot be named "root."
Optionally (but strongly recommended), click Test Connection to verify that the server can connect to the database.
Repeat the steps you performed for the primary database, except provide the name of the MDM database. If any of the other values are different for the MDM database, enter the appropriate values for this database. Click Next.
An email server is used to send some of the Mobility system notifications, and is mandatory for the Symantec Mobility: Suite installation.
Enter your email server information. The Host can be an IP address or FQDN.
Enter the email addresses you want to use for Sender and Recipient. For instance, for Sender, you may want to use "noreply@<mail server>" to indicate that there is no listener for replies to this address.
The Recipient is usually the Mobility: Suite administrator that's responsible for monitoring system health. This person must already have an account on the email server.
You can store files on the primary database or map a mounted file system for file storage. Stored files include .IPA, .APK (iOS and Android apps, respectively), and icon files. Using a mounted file system provides higher performance.
Scaling in this context refers to task brokering. Symantec Mobility: Suite can use either of two task brokering systems; Rabbit MQ or DB Queue. Rabbit MQ relieves the database of the task brokering work, which can be considerable. To use Rabbit MQ, it must be configured prior to completing this workflow.
For instructions to set up Rabbit MQ for Symantec Mobility, see the article, Installing and configuring a Rabbit MQ server cluster for Symantec Mobility Manager at http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO100093 .
Select the broker you want to use. If you select Rabbit MQ, provide the requested information and then click Next. If you select DBQueue, click Next.
It is strongly recommended that you test the connection to the task brokering service before you move to the next step.
The review page provides a configuration status summary of the configurator worklflow selections and values. You can return to any of the configurator pages and make corrections if necessary. When you are ready to finish the workflow, click Finish.
The configurator runs and completes the installation process. If the configurator cannot complete, an error is displayed and the process halts. Once you've resolved the error(s), use the Resume button to continue.
A message is displayed when the configurator successfully completes the configuration process.
