Install the
CylanceGATEWAY
Connector to an
ESXi
environment

You can configure the
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
's network interface to use DHCP or configure a static IP only when you install the
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
. If you want to make changes to the configuration, you must uninstall and then install the
CylanceGATEWAY Connector
with the new network interface configuration.
Make sure you have permissions to deploy an OVF template into an
ESXi
environment.
  1. Download the
    CylanceGATEWAY Connector
    OVA file (cylance-gateway-connector-<
    build number
    >.ova) from
    my
    Account
    .
  2. Log in to the
    ESXi
    environment.
  3. In the
    Navigator
    panel, select
    Virtual Machines
    .
  4. Click the
    Create/Register VM
    button
  5. On the
    New Virtual Machine
    screen, select
    Deploy a virtual machine from an OVF or OVA file
    and click
    Next
    .
  6. Type a name for the virtual machine
  7. Navigate to the cylance-gateway-connector-<
    build number
    >.ova file. Drag and drop the file in the dialog box.
  8. Click
    Next

    IP addresses must be entered as IPv4 addresses in dot-decimal notation.
    • By default, the
      Use DHCP
      is enabled and the connector uses automatically assigned IP addresses. If you want to configure the connector with a static IP address, you must clear the Use DHCP check box and provide the IP addresses for the following settings: 
    • In the
      IP address / Prefix Length
      field, specify the IP address and prefix that can be assigned to devices (for example, 192.0.2.100/24). To use multiple IP addresses, separate the IP addresses with a comma (,).
    • In the
      Gateway
      field, enter the address for the network gateway (for example, 192.0.2.1)
    • In the
      DNS
      field, specify the IP address for the DNS servers that you want to use (for example, 192.0.2.120). To use multiple DNS servers, separate the addresses with a comma (,).
  12. Click
    Next
    .
  13. On the
    Ready to complete
    screen, review the configuration settings and click
    Finish
    .
After you install the connector, you can verify that the OVA file is installed correctly in the virtual environment. For instructions, see Configure the CylanceGATEWAY Connector in the VM environment.
