Connecting to

Below you can find detailed information on how to connect your DataMiner System to, also known as connecting to the cloud or making a DMS cloud-connected.


Before you connect

Before you connect your DMS to (unless you connect with a DMZ setup):

  1. Verify that your DataMiner System meets all requirements.

  2. Download the latest DataMiner Cloud Pack installer from DataMiner Dojo and install it on one or more DMAs in the cluster.

    If you are on the Feature Release track, .NET 6 is included in DataMiner from version 10.3.3 onwards, so select the package without .NET 6. If you are on the Main Release track, .NET 6 is included from version 10.3.0 [CU3] onwards, so for earlier versions, you will need to select the package with .NET 6.

    • If your DataMiner System contains a Failover pair, and one of the Agents in the Failover pair is responsible for hosting the connection towards, install the DataMiner Cloud Pack on both Agents in the Failover pair.
    • Installing the Cloud Pack on more than one DMA has several advantages. However, make sure that the Cloud Pack is only installed on DMAs that allow network traffic towards *
