Secure Mobile Access 12.4 CMS Administration Guide


The Central Management Server with Global High Availability (CMS with GTO) is located inside a corporation’s intranet. CMS requires a new type of license called a CMS License that is issued by SonicWall.

The CMS runs as a virtual machine that can be hosted on VMware ESX/ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, AWS, Azure, and KVM. CMS is not designed to run on custom hardware such as VPN appliances.

CMS with GTO provides the following features:

  • Central Management Console (CMC) to monitor, maintain, and configure SMA appliances
  • Simplified license management with a centralized license that eliminates the need for individual appliance licenses
  • Centralized alerts via the console dashboard and SNMP traps
  • Global Traffic Optimizer (GTO)
