Repoint a CWS sensor to the CertCentral cloud service

Manual sensor repoint when automatic fails during CWS discovery upgrade

When you import your CWS sensor and scan settings to CertCentral, we reconfigure your sensors so they communicate with the CertCentral cloud service instead of CWS.

In the rare case that we can’t repoint your sensor, it’s easy to do yourself if you have access to the sensor installation directory.

Manually repoint a CWS sensor

  1. Make sure your network allows your sensor to communicate with the CertCentral cloud service.

  2. Download our repoint package, [name.zip]. [link or get from console? Ask Surya/Harpreet]

  3. Extract the package contents to the sensor installation directory. The package contains:

    • jar file
    • repointsensor.bat
    • repointsensor.sh
    • config file
  4. Run repointsensor.bat for Windows or repointsensor.sh for Linux.

    The repointsensor process automatically updates cloud service URLs in your license.properties file.
