Installing the Email Security module of the Security Manager
Deployment and Installation Center | Forcepoint Email Security
When installing the Email Security module of the Security Manager, the option is provided to also install Email Log Server.
It is assumed you have reached this point by starting a Forcepoint Security Manager installation and selecting the Email Security module. If not, see Creating a Forcepoint management server.
The Email Security module of the Security Manager will be installed automatically. You cannot deselect it.
Email Log Server is selected for installation by default. To install the Email Log Server, SQL Server or SQL Server Express must already be installed and running in your network (see System requirements for this version for supported versions of SQL Server). If you chose to install SQL Server Express, if available, during Forcepoint Management Infrastructure installation, then it is already installed on this machine.
Starting in version 8.5.4, more stringent connection string and certificate requirements are needed for establishing an encrypted connection with a SQL Server. Using an IP address is no longer supported for encrypted connections; you must use a hostname or a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) that matches the Common Name (CN) field on the certificate used by SQL Server, if using an encrypted database connection.
If you choose to install Email Log Server, the Email Log Server Configuration utility is also installed. This utility can be accessed by selecting Start > Forcepoint > Email Log Server Configuration.
You can install the Email Log Server on another machine; it is not required to be installed on the same machine as the Security Manager. To install Log Server on a different machine, deselect the Email Log Server option here (in the Select Components screen) and complete the installation. Then run Forcepoint Security Installer on the machine on which you want to install the Email Log Server. Perform a custom installation of email protection components to install Email Log Server (see Installing email protection components).

On the Email Log Database screen, specify the IP address or IP address and instance name (format: IP address\instance) for the email Log Database.
You may specify whether the connection to the database should be encrypted.
If you are using an encrypted connection, ensure that you use a hostname or FQDN for your Email Log Database that matches the CN field on the certificate that SQL Server is using.
Please note the following issues associated with using this encryption feature:
To use SSL encryption, you must have imported a trusted certificate to the Log Server machine. See your database documentation for information about importing a trusted certificate.
Designate the login type for the database, either Windows authentication or SQL authentication.
On the Email Database File Location screen, specify where database files should be located and then click Next.
This screen appears only if you chose to install the Email Log Server.
The path entered here is understood to refer to the machine on which the database engine is located. The path entered must specify a directory that already exists.
On the Email System Credentials screen, specify the server name or domain name of the management server, along with the user credentials to be used by Forcepoint Security Manager components when running services. Specify the User name and Password of the account to be used by the Security Manager.
On the Email Appliance screen specify the Email appliance to be managed by this installation of the Security Manager and then click Next.
Enter the IP address of the Email appliance. You must specify an IP address only. Do not use a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN).
When you click Next, communication with the specified appliance will be verified. Communication may be unsuccessful if:
If the Appliance network communication popup message appears, click OK and enter your subscription key in the appropriate entry field.
On the Installation Folder screen, specify the location to which you want to install Email module components and then click Next.
To select a location different than the default, use the Browse button.
Each component (Email Security module and/or Email Log Server) will be installed in its own folder under the parent folder you specify here.
On the Pre-Installation Summary screen, review your settings for the components to be installed. If they are correct, click Install.
Click Back to return to any screen on which you want to modify settings.
The Installing Email Protection Solutions screen appears, as components are being installed.
Wait until the Installation Complete screen appears, and then click Done.
