Setting Up a Proxy With Zerto

KB Number:
000001597

Cause:
Using a proxy requires setting the ZVM’s operating system to send/receive internet traffic through a proxy.  

Solution:

Note: Authenticated proxy is not supported. Therefore, the user running the ZVM service must have full permissions on the proxy server. The user should not need a username/password combination in order to access the internet.  

To set up a proxy with Zerto: 

  1. Open an elevated command prompt on the ZVM machine in question, and use the Microsoft Bitsadmin tool per Microsoft's TechNet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770473.aspx  (please note that this is an official Microsoft article and is not related to Zerto) 
  2. Use the following syntax from the article:  bitsadmin /Util /SetIEProxy localsystem MANUAL_PROXY <proxy list> <bypass list>
    For example, a proxy with address 192.168.0.25, will need to run  the following command: bitsadmin /Util /SetIEProxy localsystem MANUAL_PROXY https://192.168.0.25:8080 NULL
