1.2 Ondemand Content Master - Requirements

The Ondemand Content Master requires an Internet connection to communicate with and download content from the external Antimalware cloud service. This service is a Content Distribution Network (CDN) that manages all the malware signature files required to disinfect files on managed devices.

Configuring a proxy: If the OCM requires a proxy to access the service, the OCM server’s Subscription proxy configuration file is used.

To configure the proxy configuration file for a proxy server:

  1. On the Primary Server that is configured as the Ondemand Content Master, create a JSON file titled ODCExternalConfig.json in the location indicated below for your server type:

    • Linux: /etc/opt/microfocus/zenworks/

    • Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\ZENworks\conf

    An example of the content within the ODCExternalConfig.json file is shown below:

    URL proxy format: username:password@host:port

      "proxyUrl": "johndoe:novell@"

    If credentials are not required, use this format example:

      "proxyUrl": "@"
  2. Save the JSON file. The settings are effective within 15 minutes, but you can restart ZENworks services to apply the settings immediately.

  3. A Satellite proxy must be configured with the Content Role and have SSL enabled in that configuration. If you are using a Satellite as proxy:

    Save a copy of the JSON file on the Satellite and restart the ZENworks Agent Service on that device. The JSON file location for satellites is provided below:

    • Linux: /etc/opt/novell/zenworks/

    • Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\ZENworks\conf

Accessing the CDN: The following URL must be open to access the CDN: https://microfocus-2dcb60a8-26c9-4560-9cc2-34a16ea5f6e6.2d7dd.cdn.bitdefender.net
