Configuring an edge server for the Master server

Configuration process

By configuring an edge server for a master server, you ensure that all requests to the master server from the inSync client's outside the organization's firewall are directed through the edge server. The following table describes the multi-step configuration process.

Step Description
Step 1 Install the edge server on a Windows or Linux server located on a DMZ. For instructions, see Installing edge server.
Step 2 Log on to the computer where you installed the edge server and generate an edge server registration key. For instructions, see Generating edge server registration key.
Step 3 Log on to the inSync Admin Console and enter the edge server details. For instructions see, Registering the master edge server.

Generating the edge server registration key

The edge server registration key acts as a unique identifier for the edge server and secures the interactions between the edge server and the Master server.

For Windows

To generate the edge server registration key

  1. Log on to the computer where you have installed the edge server.
  2. On the Start menu, click All Programs > Druva inSync Edge Server > Druva inSync Edge Server.

The following information about the edge server is displayed:

  • IP address of the edge server
  • Port number used for communication with the edge server
  • Registration key of the edge server 

Copy the edge server registration key.

For Linux

To generate the edge server registration key

  1. Log on to the computer where you have installed the edge server.
  2. On the terminal, run the following command:
    sudo insync-edgeserver-config.sh -k

The registration key of the edge server is displayed. Copy the edge server registration key.
