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?
@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.
