CP730 & SmartConsole R180.10

Jump to solution

Is there a document that outlines how to integrate the SmartConsole R80.10 with a 730.  Actually there are three (3) 730 units that I would like to interface. Is there value doing this with the SmartConsole or is it easier just doing a remote access to the units?

This thread is a little old, but 7xx series appliances cannot be managed with an SMS: 

"The 1100, 1200R and 1400 series appliances are capable of being centrally managed via SmartCenter.
The 600 and 700 series can either be locally managed, or managed via the SMP (Cloud or on-premise)."

Daniel Taney did already give the correct answer, but there is some addition: Although a 730 SMB appliance can not be managed by R80.10 SMS, the R80.10 SMS can be used by the 730s for central logging - a nice to have thing compared to logging locally on SMB...

Nice thing indeed.

Since we are on this topic: We need a way to send logs from locally managed clusters!!!! No pressure. 😉

I believe sk108437 - How to configure the External Security Log Server on Locally Managed SMB appliances is still applicable, though I admit I have not tried it with a locally managed SMB cluster.

Should be stright-forward - SMB HA clusters have only one fully configured member (see sk121096: How to configure cluster between locally managed SMB appliancesthat should be set to log to the SMS. At least do know nothing that this could be impossible in SMB clusters...

Not supported. Here is the message:

According to CP, the reason is that the GWs can only have SIC with one other host. In the case of locally managed cluster, they set SIC with each other and cannot connect to a CP log server, SMS or SMP.

Actually, take a look at your own answer here: Is it possible to connect a cluster to the SMP?
