The tasks to deploy and set up VMware Identity Manager require that you complete the prerequisites, deploy the VMware Identity Manager OVA file and complete the setup from the VMware Identity Manager Setup wizard.

Note:

If you plan to enable certificate or smart card-based authentication, use the SSL pass-through setting at the load balancer, instead of the terminate SSL setting. This configuration ensures that the SSL handshake is between the connector, a component of VMware Identity Manager, and the client.

Note:

Depending on the location of the AirWatch deployment, the AirWatch REST APIs could be in the cloud or on premises.
