Dell SMA Central Management Server (CSM) is located inside a corporation’s intranet. CMS requires a new type of license called a CMS License that is issued by Dell. The CMS runs as a virtual machine that can be hosted on VMware ESX/ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V. CMS is not designed to run on custom hardware such as VPN appliances.
Core CMS provides the following features:
• Central Management Console (CMC) to monitor, maintain, and configure Dell SMA appliances.
• Simplified license management with a centralized license that eliminates the need for individual appliance licenses.
• Centralized alerts via the console dashboard and SNMP traps.
