Generate an activation code

Before you begin

Configure network settings for the management interface, data interface, and the DNS name servers.

After you deploy the security connector and configure the network settings, you must activate the security connector. The activation process requires that you generate a one-time code for the security connector you added in ETP and provide this code in the Security Connector interface. This procedure describes how you generate the activation code.

The code is valid for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes, you must generate a new activation code.

How to

  1. In the ETP navigation menu, select Configuration > Utilities. Click the Security Connector tab.
    Note: If you are trying the new Enterprise Center interface, in the navigation menu, select Clients & Connectors > Security Connector.
  2. In the Akamai Security Connector area of the page, go to the security connector that you created, and click Generate OTP.
    A dialog appears with the one-time code that is needed to activate the security connector. Take note of this code. The activation code is case sensitive.

  3. Close the dialog. If needed, you can view the code again within the 60 minute time frame by clicking the Activation in Progress link that now appears beside the Security Connector status.
