Step 5e: Running MDM Gateway Server Setup


The following steps discuss Mobile Device Manager Gateway Server Setup. Make sure that you synchronize the clock on MDM Gateway Server to that of the domain. MDM Device Management Server will be unable to authenticate the gateway certificate if you do not synchronize the clocks.

  1. On the MDM installation CD, on the Setup menu, choose Gateway Server.

  2. On the Gateway Server Setup page, choose Next.

  3. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms and then select the I accept the License Terms for Microsoft Software check box. Choose Next.

  4. On the Installation Directory page, accept the default directory, or type a different location, and then choose Next.

  5. On the Gateway IP Address page, type the company network-facing IP address and port that you want to communicate with MDM Device Management Server. Choose Next.

    The IP address that you supply here is the company network-facing address on MDM Gateway Server. The IP address and port that you enter do not validate to make sure that they are currently active, or that there is a valid IP address or port on MDM Gateway Server. You must confirm that these values are correct for the final management static IP Address and port for MDM Gateway Server. You must also make sure that the port you choose is open between both MDM Gateway Server and MDM Device Management Server.
  6. On the Gateway Configuration File page, choose Browse. Locate the GatewayConfig.xml file that you created and stored in the previous step, Step 5d: Creating and Importing the MDM Gateway Server Configuration File.

  7. Choose Next.

  8. On the Gateway Server Certificates page, choose Browse to select the gateway authentication certificate.

  9. In the Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager-Gateway dialog box, select the Gateway Certificate that you installed previously in Step 5a: Creating the MDM Gateway Certificate Request and Certificate, and then choose OK.

  10. Choose Browse to select the certification authority certificate.

  11. In the Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager-Gateway dialog box, select the certification authority certificate that you installed previously in Step 5c: Create and Import Certification Authority Certificates onto the MDM Gateway Server. Choose OK, and then choose Next.

    This certificate must be the root certification authority certificate and not the certificate of an intermediate certification authority. You must select the root certification authority certificate. Otherwise, MDM Gateway Server will reject communication from the Windows Mobile device. Setup will not be completed successfully if a root certificate is not chosen in this step.
  12. If you have not already configured Microsoft Update on the server, a Microsoft Update page will appear that prompts you to configure the server for Microsoft Update. Make your selection and then choose Next.

  13. On the Ready to Install page, verify the information and then choose Install.

  14. Choose Finish to close the wizard.
