Connect to external FPolicy servers

Contributors

To enable file processing, you might need to manually connect to an external FPolicy server if the connection has previously been terminated. A connection is terminated after the server timeout is reached or due to some error. Alternatively, the administrator might manually terminate a connection.

About this task

If a fatal error occurs, the connection to the FPolicy server can be terminated. After resolving the issue that caused the fatal error, you must manually reconnect to the FPolicy server.

Steps
  1. Connect to the external FPolicy server by using the vserver fpolicy engine-connect command.

    For more information about the command, see the man pages.

  2. Verify that the external FPolicy server is connected by using the vserver fpolicy show-engine command.

    For more information about the command, see the man pages.
