Run the VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector installer on your configured server that meets all of the prerequisites.

Prerequisites

On-premises customers should ensure the server you are installing VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector on can reach AWCM by browsing to "https://{url}:<port>/awcm/status", where {url} is the Workspace ONE UEM environment URL and <port> is the external port you configured for AWCM to communicate.

SaaS customers should ensure the server you are installing VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector on can reach AWCM by browsing to "https://awcmXXX.awmdm.com/awcm/status". (Replace 'XXX' with the same number as used in your environment URL, for example, '100' for cn100.). If your server fails to connect to the AWCM URL, ensure that the URL matches the URL provided in your onboarding documents.

Note: If you previously used the VMware Enterprise Systems Connector and you want to install the AirWatch Cloud Connector on the same server, you must download the VMware Identity Manager Connector installer and run it again before running the AirWatch Cloud Connector installer.

You should see the status of the AWCM with no SSL errors. If there are errors, resolve them before continuing or the VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector will not properly function.
