The Enterprise Systems Connector contains two Windows services that can be installed on a physical or virtual server running Windows 2008 R2, 2012, or 2012 R2. It operates from within your internal network and can be configured behind any existing Web Application Firewalls or load balancers.
By initiating a secure HTTPS connection from Enterprise Systems Connector to messaging services built into AirWatch and VMware Identity Manager, Enterprise Systems Connector can periodically transmit information from your internal resources such as AD, LDAP, etc. to the product without any firewall changes. If you plan on proxying traffic through an outbound proxy, you can use settings in the connector configuration that allow for proxying.
Use Enterprise Systems Connector in the following configurations.
