After configuring the initial network setup on the SMA 8200v console, you can access the Appliance Management Console (AMC) with https://<<you< a="">IP address>:8443. The first time you access AMC, the Setup Wizard runs automatically to guide you through a series of required and optional steps for configuring the appliance.
To complete the Setup Wizard for the SMA 8200v:
2, License Agreement
3, Basic Settings
From release 12.0, GMS is deprecated and Central Management Server(CMS) is introduced as new feature to manage up to 100 VPN appliances. To configure the virtual machine as a CMS, select the checkbox under Central Management section. To configure the virtual machine as a virtual SMA appliance, uncheck this option.
4, Network Settings
For Dual -homed interface configuration, select Dual interfaces. For single-homed interface configuration, select Single interface.
6, Name Resolution
The appliance must be able to perform name resolution to reach resources on your internal network. Enter a default domain, which is the domain in which the appliance is located (such as yourcompany.com).
7, User Access
You can give users full network access by provisioning the OnDemand Tunnel access agent. If you do, you'll also need to specify the Source NAT address that will appear to back-end servers as the source of client traffic. This must be an IP address that is on the same subnet as the internal interface, and is not in use elsewhere.
Decide on an initial access policy for users (you can refine it later in AMC). This can be completely permissive (granting access to the entire network protected by the SSL VPN), very strict (deny all access), or in-between (give users access to all resources as you define them in AMC).
To apply the settings, click Finish.
The SMA 8200v restarts, which causes you to lose your current connection. A progress bar is displayed while the settings are being applied.
After restarting, the AMC login page is displayed.
Enter admin into the Username field. Enter the Administrator password that you set in the Basic Settings screen into the Password field. Click Login.
