VMware Enterprise Systems Connector Setup

The VMware Enterprise Systems Connector allows organizations to integrate AirWatch with back-end enterprise systems without exposing or compromising the security of these systems.  The VMware Enterprise Systems Connector runs in the internal network and acts as a proxy that securely transmits requests from AirWatch to enterprise infrastructure components.

For the purposes of the lab, the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector is already setup and configured for you.  The following steps will review the architecture and show a demo video of how to install the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector.

1. Architecture Overview

The simple architecture diagram above demonstrates the following concepts:

  • The VMware Enterprise Systems Connector is installed on the internal network where it is able to access your Active Directory.
  • The VMware Enterprise Systems Connector requires no inbound access from the internet, requiring no additional inbound ports to be exposed on your firewall.
  • When deploying the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector with only the AirWatch Cloud Connector component installed, AirWatch can securely sync your Directory and users to your VMware Identity Manager tenant.

Continue to the next step when you are ready.

2. Video Demo of Installation

NOTE: The video contains no spoken instructions.  Please refer to the subtitles for instructions about the installation process.

Please watch this short demonstration of how to install the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector before continuing to the next step.

NOTE: Do not attempt to make any of the configurations or changes shown in the demo video!  This demonstration is only to highlight the configuration and installation process for your knowledge.
