    Is Enterprise Service Manager required (consider production environment).
    If yes, how to install ESM. We could see only ESM - Gateway configurations but not an installation guide.

     

    What should be the ideal production architecture?

    Thanks for quick reply Kemal, 

     

    I understand that ESM is not required but what is the ideal suggestion for the production environment? What parameters should consider to validate?

     

    The provided documentation speaks about ESM - Gateway configurations. I am looking for ESM installation document which can provide system prerequisites, software, and installation steps. 

     

    Regards

    Kareem

    Kareem,

     

    The ESM documentation has not made it into our online documentation so I have attached the User Manual. As Kemal mentioned the ESM is not required and we have seen more people using the Gateway Migration Utility (GMU) to migrate policy and internal monitoring agents/tools to monitor the Gateways.

     

    Sincerely,

    Hi Stephen,

    After login ESM, there is very good online document, click "Help" link on top right.
