Restore EFT Enterprise configuration and modify DMZ Gateway IP address

DISCUSSION

The attached VB script automates the EFT Enterprise restore function and allows you to change/set the DMZ Gateway IP address. This script is particularly useful when moving the EFT Enterprise configuration from a primary/production site to a warm/secondary site (when EFT HA is not enabled).

Note: The restore action requires a stop/start of the EFT Enterprise service. It is recommended for use on a ‘warm’ or ‘DR’ site where service interruption will not affect production traffic.

To use the script

  1. Create an Event Rule on the production server to copy the nightly EFT Enterprise backup file to the remote server. Rename the file to something static, such as ServerConfig.bak.
  2. Create a Windows Scheduled Task to invoke the RestoreConfig.vbs after the ServerConfig.bak is copied to the remote server.
  3. Test remote server configuration to verify that user accounts/event rules/workflows are correct.

The script allows for using either EFT Authentication (EFTLogin) or Integrated Windows Authentication (IWALogin) when accessing the EFT COM API. (Note: IWA will only work if the HSM module licensed in EFT.)

For more detailed information about how to use the EFT COM API, refer to the online help at http://help.globalscape.com/help/gs_com_api/com_using_the_com_interface.htm

After downloading the script file, rename it with the VBS extension.
