User Guide: AMF Security Controller version 2.1.0

Installing AMF Security



To install AMF Security on your server, take the following steps:

Note
When you install AMF Security on a virtual machine, please refer to "Virtual Machine System Requirements" at the end of this section.
  1. Connect a monitor and a keyboard to the server.
  2. Power on the server and the monitor, then insert the AMF Security installation media into a DVD drive on the server.
    Note
    Refer to your server's documentation for instructions on how to set it up to boot from a DVD.
    The AMF Security Installation Media does not support UEFI boot. Make sure that the server is using the legacy BIOS for system startup.
  3. On the following screen, select "Install AT-SESC" and press Enter.
    Note
    Pressing Enter begins the installation process, which erases all the data on your server's hard drive.

    Selecting "Start Recovery Mode" here lets you go into the recovery mode, where you can perform operations such as deleting system configuration files or reconfigure IP address. Please refer to Appendix > Recovery Mode for details.

  4. Installation process begins and the screen shows its progress.

  5. The following screen asks you which interface to use for management traffic.
    It lists all available interfaces on the server.

    Choose a management interface and select "OK".
    Note
    You can configure other non-management interfaces once the installation process is complete.
    If you select "Cancel" here, the system restarts without configuring any interfaces.

    The system also restarts if no interface is available.

  6. The next screen lets you assign an IP address to the management interface.

    Enter an IP address for the management interface and select "OK".
    Selecting "Cancel" here takes you back to the interface selection screen.
    Note
    If you enter an address in a wrong format, you are brought back to the interface selection screen.
    Note
    Please make sure that the specified IP address is not being used by any other device. If you reboot the server with the configured IP address which is being used by another device, you are locked out of the AMF Security's GUI because the management interface is disabled due to the duplicate address. In such cases, you have to start over the whole installation process. Alternatively, you can reboot the server and go into the recovery mode to reconfigure the management IP address.
  7. The next screen asks you to enter a subnet mask for the management interface.

    Enter a subnet mask and select "OK".
    Selecting "Cancel" here takes you back to the interface selection screen.
    Note
    If you enter an address in a wrong format, you are brought back to the interface selection screen.
  8. The next screen asks you to enter a default gateway address.

    Enter a default gateway address and select "OK".
    Selecting "Cancel" here takes you back to the interface selection screen.

    Note
    If you enter an address in a wrong format, you are brought back to the interface selection screen.
  9. The next screen asks you a primary DNS server address.

    Enter a primary DNS server address and select "OK".
    Selecting "Cancel" here takes you back to the interface selection screen.

    Note
    If you enter an address in a wrong format, you are brought back to the interface selection screen.
  10. The next screen asks you a secondary DNS server address.

    Enter a secondary DNS server address and select "OK".
    Selecting "Cancel" here takes you back to the interface selection screen.

    Note
    If you enter an address in a wrong format, you are brought back to the interface selection screen.
  11. The next screen shows you a summary of the configurations which you have chosen.

    If you are okay with those configurations, select "Correct".
    If you want to change some configurations, select "Modify" to go back to the interface selection screen.

  12. The installation process is complete with the following screen.
    Eject the AMF Security installation media, and then press Enter to reboot the server.


  13. The server restarts and boots into AMF Security operating system.
    Hereafter, you can configure and manage AMF Security through its web interface by using a web browser on your management PC. Therefore the server no longer needs the keyboard and the monitor.

    Note
    Make sure that the server running AMF Security is installed in a secure location.
