THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
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
- 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.
- Create a Windows Scheduled Task to invoke the RestoreConfig.vbs after the ServerConfig.bak is copied to the remote server.
- 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.
