3.1 Logging into the User Interface

To open the Login page of the Oracle VM Manager user interface, enter the following address in a Web browser:


Where, hostname refers to the host name or IP address of the Oracle VM Manager host, and port refers to the port number on which the Oracle VM Manager user interface is listening (which is 7002 by default).


In previous versions of Oracle VM Manager unencrypted HTTP traffic was permitted by default. HTTP access is now disabled by default and Oracle VM Manager uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt all HTTP traffic. Therefore, you should always use https in the protocol section of your URI.


You must ensure that if you are accessing Oracle VM Manager through a firewalled connection, the firewall is configured to allow TCP traffic on the port that Oracle VM Manager is using to listen for connections.

To connect to Oracle VM Manager on a host named example.com, use:


Enter your Oracle VM Manager administration username in the Username field. This is the administration username you create during the Oracle VM Manager install. Enter the password for the Oracle VM Manager administration username in the Password field.


The Oracle VM Manager user interface makes use of cookies in order to store session data. Therefore, to successfully login and use the Oracle VM Manager user interface your web browser must accept cookies from the Oracle VM Manager host.

Now you are logged in, you can add Oracle VM Servers, add storage, create storage repositories and import resources into them, create server pools, and create virtual machines.

The user interface displays context sensitive information, relevant to the selection in the navigator and content panes.
