  • The path and operating system must be consistent between all servers in the replication group.
  • The proxy UI must be protected. 
  • You must have access to the proxy UI.

  • BACKUP the proxy server configuration before making this change




Configure the proxy server


1) Open the access gateway UI

After you move your configuration to prod LOWER THIS VALUE!!!
