Registering a CloudBridge Appliance with Citrix Command Center

Aug 12, 2014

Before you can use Citrix Command Center to manage a CloudBridge appliance, you must register the appliance with it.

To configure a CloudBridge appliance for autoconfiguration
  1. In the CloudBridge setup wizard (System > Configuration > System > Setup Wizard ), specify the IP address of the DNS server used by the CloudBridge device.
  2. Enter the registration password that you specified in Configure CloudBridge Registration Settings on the Command Center server, and click OK. Leave this field blank if you have not changed the password.

The CloudBridge appliance sends a registration request to the Command Center server, which automatically discovers the device and runs the commands available in the configuration profile.

Alternatively, you can navigate to the CloudBridge > Configuration > Appliance Settings > Logging/Monitoring page and specify the Command Center details on the Command Center tab.

To register the appliance with Citrix Command Center
  1. Navigate to the CloudBridge > Configuration > Appliance Settings > Logging/Monitoring page.
  2. Click the Command Center tab.
  3. In the IP Address field, type the IP address of the Citrix Command Center appliance with which you want to register the CloudBridge appliance.
  4. In the Port field, type the port number used for Citrix Command Center. 8443 is the default port number used for Citrix Command Center.
  5. In the Registration Password field, type the password that the Command Center administrator has set for a CloudBridge appliance to log on to Citrix Command Center. Do not specify any password if the Command Center administrator has accepted the default password for registering the appliance.
  6. Click Update.
  7. Select AutoConfiguration By Citrix Command Center option to automatically configure the appliance through Command Center.

    The Status field changes from Disabled to Initiated registration, which later changes to Request accepted if the registration of the appliance with Citrix Command Center is successful.

Your CloudBridge appliance is registered with Citrix Command Center and you can now manage the appliance remotely by using Citrix Command Center.
