Control UTM-1 Edge appliances

The Edge gets its policy from the SmartCenter server over the SofaWare Management Server process (sms).
The interval of pulling the policy is defined over Global Properties -> UTM-1 Edge Gateway -> Update configuration settings every XX minutes
Global Properties for UTM-1 Edge appliances
If you want to update an Edge immideately, you can do this be using the WebUI (access your SmartCenter over http://:9283/) or you can use the command line.
The directory /opt/CPEdgecmp-R7x/bin contains the tool swcmdwhich can be used to issue commands directly to the Edge appliance.
swcmd UpdateNowAll will tell the Edges to update their policy immediately.
swcmd Reboot will reboot the gateway.
