Changing the location of the Control Center on a Scanner

You can move your Control Center installation to a different computer. If the IP address stays the same and the MySQL tables are backed up and can be restored, no special configuration steps are required.

If you must change the IP address, change the Agent configuration file on all of your Scanners. This change lets the new Control Center communicate with your Scanners.

To change the location of the Control Center on a Scanner

  1. In a text editor, open the following file on the Scanner:

    Linux and Solaris

    Default directory:

    /opt/symantec/sbas/Scanner/etc/agentconfig.xml

    Note:

    If you use a non-default installation directory location, replace /opt/symantec/sbas/Scanner with /$loadpoint.

    Windows

    C:\Program Files\Symantec\sbas\Scanner\Config\agentconfig.xml

  2. Find the following section in the agentconfig.xml file:

    <allowedIPs> 
    <allowedIP>10.10.18.91</allowedIP> 
    </allowedIPs>
  3. Change the value of allowedIP to the new IP address for the Control Center.

    You can specify multiple IP addresses with multiple <allowedIP> tags. In each <allowedIP> tag, you can use either of the following notations:

    Single host: 128.113.213.4

    CIDR: 198.0.0.0/8 (equivalent to 198.0.0.0/255.0.0.0)

    Before you specify multiple IP addresses, make sure that you understand the security implications for your network.
