Configuring a Proxy Network Topology for Application Migration

Create a proxy network topology so that the proxy server can communicate with the cloud.

For this configuration, there is a proxy server between a client group that contains the MediaAgent and CommServe computer and a client group that contains the clients that have the applications that you want to migrate.

This topology uses the following client groups:

  • A group that contains the CommServe computer and the MediaAgent.
  • A group that contains all the clients that contain the applications that you want to migrate
  • A group that contains the proxy server

Before You Begin

  • Create a client group that contains the CommServe computer and the MediaAgent.
  • Create a client group that contains all the clients that contain the applications that you want to migrate.
  • Create a client group that contains the proxy server.

For more information, see Creating a Client Computer Group.

Procedure

  1. Create a network gateway topology for the clients groups with the following parameters:
    • Topology Type: Via Proxy
    • Trusted Client Group 1 (Clients): The client group that contains the CommServe computer and the MediaAgent.
    • Trusted Client Group 2 (Infrastructure): The client group that contains all the clients that contain the applications that you want to migrate.
    • Proxy/DMZ Group: The client group that contains the network gateway server.

    For more information, see Setting Up Network Gateway Connections Using a Predefined Network Topology.

    Note: The only package that you need to install on the network gateway server is the File System core package.

  2. Configure the network gateway server client to use port 443.
    1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers, right-click the networkgateway_client, and then click Properties.

      The Client Properties dialog box appears.

    2. Click Network.

      The Network Properties for Client dialog box appears.

    3. On the Network Route Configuration tab, on the Incoming Ports subtab, select the Override default tunnel port check box, and then type 443.
    4. On the Options tab, select the This computer is in DMZ and will work as proxy check box.
    5. Click OK.

What to Do Next

After you create the network topology, configure the remote cache for the proxy server with the following properties.

For more information, see Setting Up a Remote Cache on a Client Computer.
