7.7 Logging in to Oracle VM Manager

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

https://hostname:port/ovm/console

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.

Important

The hostname should match the fully qualified domain name or IP address that you configured during installation of Oracle VM Manager. The SSL certificate that was generated for HTTPS traffic is specific to this hostname. If you enter an alternate hostname or IP address, the SSL certificate may fail validation and you may see an error in your browser.

Note

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:

https://myserver.example.com:7002/ovm/console

Important

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.

Warning

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:

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.

The user interface displays context sensitive information, relevant to the selection in the navigator and content panes. For further information on using the user interface, please refer to the Oracle VM Manager Getting Started Guide and the Oracle VM Manager User's Guide.
