To deploy load balancers managed by Sophos UTM on AWS via the Resource Manager, proceed as follows:
- In Sophos UTM on AWS navigate to AWS Management > Outbound Gateway.
- Click on New Outbound Gateway.
The Add Outbound Gateway dialog box opens with the activated Resource Manager checkbox.
- Make the following settings:
Failover Group: Define the group of load balancers for fallback.
Note – For more information on failover groups, see chapter Fallback Scenarios.
Group Name (if New Failover Group is selected): Enter the name of the new group.
Position: If requested, change the position number, defining the priority of the gateway.
AWS Subnet ID: ID of a fresh and empty AWS subnet, the gateway should be deployed to.
Note – Do not use an existing client subnet or a subnet which is already in use.
Networks: Insert the network object for the client subnet in the same Availability Zone.
Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.
- Make the following advanced settings:
Gateway Network Prefix: If the displayed prefix is already in use, change it.
- Click Save.
The gateway is saved and displayed in the list.
- Repeat the steps for second gateway using the data of the other two subnets.
Note – You cannot change the usage of the Resource Manager after creating the gateway.
Note – If you have to change anything like changing the manual deployment into automatic deployment, delete the Outbound Gateway and create a new one.
