Goto SiteManager GUI > GateManager > Agents and create an agent for the data collection. (Any predefined agents will also work, just tick the DCM check box on the right side, DCM colum.)

In the Parameter details page add the Collectorname value from the DCM configuration file.

Restart the DCM : SiteManager GUI > DCM > Restart.



Now return to the DCC to retrieve the certificates for installation

Click the next to the GateManager name and the devices will appear in the tree structure on the left.

Locate the DCM in IOT Administration, and click “Setup certificate for this DCM”



Give it a name, and click “create”

Then copy / paste the 3 certificates into the DCM cert-store.

The first one is the ROOT CA certificate, next is the Device Certificate and last is the Device Key. Make sure to select the proper types in the drop-down menu in the DCM.

add the certificates from the DCC with the names from the DCM config file:

"RootCAName": " dccrootca ",

"DevCertName": " dccdevcert ",
