To open the Login page of Oracle VM Manager, 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 Oracle VM Manager is listening.


In previous version of Oracle VM Manager unencrypted HTTP traffic was allowed by default. This has been disabled to always encrypt traffic using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Therefore, you should always use https within the protocol portion of the URL to access the Oracle VM Manager.

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



You should ensure that if you are accessing Oracle VM Manager through a firewall, the firewall should be configured to allow TCP traffic on the port configured in Oracle VM Manager. By default, this is set to 7002.

Enter your Oracle VM Manager administration username (which is admin by default) 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.


In addition to the default admin user, you can also log into Oracle VM Manager using other default accounts created by the Oracle VM Manager installer, namely:

  • OracleSystemUser

  • weblogic

    Make sure the passwords for all accounts are secure. See Other Oracle VM Tools in the Oracle VM Utilities Guide for information on managing Oracle VM users and passwords.

To manage the local instance of Oracle VM Manager (installed on localhost), leave the Management Server URI field as the default, tcp://localhost. If you want to manage a remote instance of Oracle VM Manager, enter the hostname or IP address for that machine, for example:


See Section 4.9, “Enabling Remote Log Ins” for more information on accessing remote instances of Oracle VM Manager.

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