Create a Neighborhood
You can log into a CC-SG unit where you want to create a Neighborhood and which is not a member of any Neighborhood yet. After a Neighborhood is created, all members in the Neighborhood share the same Neighborhood information. If any member is the Primary Node of clustered CC-SG units, the IP address or hostname of the Secondary, or Backup, Node also displays in the Neighborhood configuration.
To create a Neighborhood
- Choose Administration > Neighborhood.
- Type a name in the Neighborhood Name field.
- Click Create Neighborhood.
- The IP address or hostname of current CC-SG already displays in the Secure Gateway IP Address/Hostname table. You may click the drop-down arrow to switch between its complete or short hostnames or IP address.
- Add one or more CC-SG units in the table.
- Click the next empty row, or press Tab or up/down arrow keys.
- Type the IP address or hostname of new CC-SG unit that you want to add and press Enter. See Terminology/Acronyms for hostname rules.
- Repeat previous steps until you finish adding all CC-SG units.
- Click Next.
- If one or more CC-SG units cannot be found, a message appears and these CC-SG units will be highlighted in yellow in the table. Remove these units or modify their IP addresses or hostnames, and click Next again.
- CC-SG displays a list of CC-SG units along with their firmware version and state in the Neighborhood Configuration table.
Note: The CC-SG units which do not meet the Neighborhood criteria are automatically deactivated.
- Adjust the Neighborhood configurations if necessary. Optional.
- To change any CC-SG's Secure Gateway Name, click the name, type a new one and press Enter. The default is a short CC-SG hostname. The name is what Access Client users will see when switching among the Neighborhood members so each name must be unique.
- To deactivate any CC-SG unit, deselect the Activate checkbox next to that unit. Deactivated CC-SG units operate as standalone units and do not show up as one of the Neighborhood members to Access Client users.
- Click the column header to sort the table by that attribute in ascending order. Click the header again to sort the table in descending order.
- To return to previous screen, click Back and repeat prior steps. Optional.
- Click Finish.
Note: Raritan recommends that you should:
(1) Configure the same Restricted Service Agreement setting and text for all Neighborhood members. See Portal.
(2) Use trusted/official certificate for every Neighborhood member if SSL is enabled.
