Reconfiguring Beacon from On-Prem to the Cloud
We are looking for some recommendations as we are looking to move a beacon that is connected to FNMS On-Premises to a Cloud instance.
Is there anything in particular we need to take in account before reconfiguring it?
Has anyone completed this setup before?
Configure the FlexNet Beacon Engine service to run as the service account (i.e. the same account that is used for running sch edu led tasks).
@clugo1 - The two types of beacons are basically different applications.
]You will need to completely UNINSTALL your On-Premises inventory beacon and then do a new install of an FNMS Cloud/Flexera One ITAM Beacon.
Assuming that you have access to the Flexera Cloud or to Flexera ONE, follow these steps for redirecting an existing on-prem FNMS Beacon to the Cloud:
- Manually edit the 'BeaconServicesEndpoint' setting in the Windows registry on your Beacon to point to the Flexera Cloud.
- Follow the standard process for registering a Beacon in the Cloud. This includes importing the Beacon configuration file that you downloaded from the Cloud into your Beacon.
- When configuring the FlexNet Beacon endpoints in the 'Parent connection', make sure the following endpoints are configured:
After completing these steps, the Beacon will be communicating with the Flexera Cloud only.
