M670 Appliance

Unanswered Question

I have a Customer that has about 10 Iron Port 370 Web Security appliances.  They want to have a M670 on the West Coast be the Primary Central Manager with a second M670 on the East coast acting in a secondary manager role.  I am struggling to locate docs on the Cisco site showing how to set-up the roles between the M670s.  Can Anyone Assist?

Thanks in Advance.

Hello Rob,

In AsyncOS Version 6 and later, redundancy was introduced to allow for message tracking  and reporting data to be replicated across two M series appliances. If  you configure redundancy("secondaryconfig"), ensure that only one IronPort M-Series  Security Management appliance has redundancy enabled along with the  respective C-Series appliances.

The following Knowledge Base article covers this type of configuration.

Article #976: How can I configure the M-series appliance for redundancy?

Hope this answers your questions.

In addition to Jerry's response.

Centralized reporting feature for WSA will only work with one SMA (M-series), however you can add one SMA to two SMAs for centralized configuration. Just need to be careful to track which SMA is used to push/publish the configuration to the WSA.
