Verify that your computer and network meet the minimum requirements before you run your first automation.
To configure an agent, the host names for the agent’s host device must be resolvable.
For example, to resolve the host name on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux server, add it to
/etc/hosts (for non-standard configurations).
The agent host must have access to the CertCentral cloud service and your targeted IP address.
CertCentral cloud service
Agents must communicate with CertCentral cloud to receive instructions to run automation and send inventory updates for newly automated certificates.
Failing to do this blocks the agents from activation and sending automation information to CertCentral.
Target IP addresses
The firewall rules or Access Control Lists must allow the agent to reach the target IP addresses you want to automate.
Proxy server communications
Agents must be able to communicate with the CertCentral cloud service to receive instructions associated with certificate automation and to report on certificate inventory updates. See Install and activate an ACME automation agent using a proxy server for communications.
