  1. Open a browser, and type this URL in your browser:

    http:// hostname:4848

    If the browser is on a different system than the server, replace the hostname variable with the hostname or IP address of the system that the Domain Admin Server is running on.

    4848 is the Admin Console’s default port number. If you changed the port number during the installation or if you have created a domain with another port number, use that number instead.

    Note –

    If a popup window appears with a message such as Website Certified by an Unknown Authority, click OK.

    This message appears because your browser does not recognize the self-signed certificate that the Domain Administration Server uses to service the Admin Console over the secure transmission protocol.

  2. When the Log in window appears, enter the admin user name and password.

  3. Click Login.

    Admin Console has a banner pane, a left pane with common
tasks tree, and a right pane with links for Common Tasks and documentation

    In the left pane, select what you want to manage from the tree provided. In the right pane, various administrative tasks are listed under the Common Tasks heading.
