Automatic enrollment is when new IP units on a network are automatically discovered by and added to Security Center. The role that is responsible for the units broadcasts a discovery request on a specific port, and the units listening on that port respond with a message that contains the connection information about themselves. The role then uses the information to configure the connection to the unit and enable communication.

The Access Manager role is able to automatically discover the Synergis™ appliances as access control units when the following conditions are met:
  • The Synergis™ appliance has never been connected to any Access Manager before.
  • The Synergis™ appliance and the Access Manager use the same discovery port.
  • The Synergis™ appliance and the Access Manager are on the same network segment.
  • The Synergis™ appliance is using the default logon username and password (admin/softwire).

HID units do not support automatic discovery.

When automatic discovery is not supported or does not work, use the Unit enrollment tool to find the units on your network and add them manually.
