Configuring Apex Central (Control Manager) Registration Settings

By default, registration to Apex Central as a Service is automatically set up during the Apex One provisioning process. You can register to a different on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server if required (for example, you want to subscribe to Suspicious Object Lists from an on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server).

Important:
  • Apex One only supports re-registration to an on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager 7.0 (or later) server.

  • If you are registering to an on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager 7.0 (or later) server, you must first run the Apex One as a Service Remote Connection Tool on an endpoint in the DMZ to facilitate communication between the cloud-based Apex One console and the local Apex Central or Control Manager server.

  1. Go to Administration > Settings > Apex Central.
  2. Click Register to a Different Apex Central Server.
  3. Specify the Server FQDN or IP address of the new Apex Central (or Control Manager) server.
    Important:
    • You must specify a different on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server than the server that Apex One has currently registered.

    • If you have set up an endpoint to establish a remote connection to an on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server, specify the Server FQDN or IP address of the reverse proxy endpoint.

  4. Specify the Port (HTTPS) of the Apex Central or Control Manager server.
    Important:

    If you have set up an endpoint to establish a remote connection to an on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server, specify the Port (HTTPS) of the reverse proxy endpoint.

  5. Beside Apex Central certificate, click Browse... and select the certificate file downloaded from the target Apex Central or Control Manager server.

    To obtain the Apex Central or Control Manager certificate file, go to the on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server and copy the certificate file to the Apex One server from the following location:

    <Control Manager installation folder>\Certificate\CA\TMCM_CA_Cert.pem

    Important:

    If your company uses a customized certificate on the Apex Central or Control Manager server, you must upload the Root CA certificate during the Apex Central or Control Manager registration.

    For more information, see Apex Central Certificate Authorization.

  6. If the IIS web server of the on-premises Apex Central or Control Manager server requires authentication, type the user name and password.
  7. Specify the Entity display name that identifies the Apex One server on the Apex Central or Control Manager console.

    By default, entity display name includes the server computer's host name and this product's name (for example, Server01_OSCE).

  8. Click Connect.
