6.6 Configuring the Engine

  1. Click Configure Engine.

  2. From the wizard page, read the overview of what will be configured and click Next.

    This page lets you confirm or change basic Engine configuration settings.

    HTTP Listener: Communication parameters for the Engine.

    Host Address: Unless you want the Engine to only listen on a certain IP address, leave this setting as it is.

    SSL Port: Unless there is a port conflict, leave the setting at 3035.

    SSL Certificate: Details for the SSL certificate that will be generated.

    Subject Name: The name of the certificate that will be generated. The server name is listed by default.

    Expiration Days: The life span of the security certificate, which is set at 10 years by default.

    Key Length: The SSL certificate encryption setting, which is set at 2048 by default.

    Details: Click the button to view the certificate data.

    Generate: If you modify any of the settings in the SSL Certificate region, click this button to generate a new certificate.

    Data Folder: The default location of the Data folder. The Data folder is used for a variety of tasks, including storing Agent configuration data, serving as a temporary repository for scans, and mail spooling.

    Move data from (Enabled only during an upgrade): Having this check box selected indicates that content from the Engine’s data folder for the previous version of File Reporter, will be moved to the path specified in the Data Folder field and the original path with be removed. If this check box is not selected, it will use whatever path is specified in the Data Folder field, including the original path.

  3. Edit any needed parameters settings and click Next.

    This page lets you establish a name for the proxy account, proxy rights group, and the communications group.

    File Reporter uses a proxy account so that Agents can access all of the servers for scanning. A proxy rights group makes it easier to manage the rights of the proxy account. The Scan Processor uses the communications group to secure who can access its service.

    The Configuration Wizard establishes default account and group names, which you can modify.

    If you are upgrading from a previous version of File Reporter, the Proxy Account and Proxy Rights Group fields will specify the existing proxy account and proxy rights group such as nfrproxy and nfrproxyrights respectively.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Specify the name for the Admins Group and Report Users Group, or use the default names.

    The Report Users Group is a group that File Reporter creates in Active Directory. Members of this group have access to all stored reports.

  6. Click Next to create the two groups.

  7. Click Finish.

    The Engine is now installed, configured, and running.
