Logging in to the UI

You can log in to the Unified Manager UI using a supported web browser.

Before you begin

About this task

You are automatically logged out of the session after 24 hours of inactivity.


  1. Enter the URL in your web browser, where URL is the IP address or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Unified Manager server:
    • For IPv4: https://URL/
    • For IPv6: https://[URL]/
    If the server uses a self-signed digital certificate, the browser might display a warning indicating that the certificate is not trusted. You can either acknowledge the risk to continue the access or install a Certificate Authority (CA) signed digital certificate for server authentication.
  2. At the login screen, enter your user name and password.
    If login to the Unified Manager user interface is protected using SAML authentication you will enter your credentials in the identity provider (IdP) login page instead of the Unified Manager login page.
    The Dashboards/Overview page is displayed.
    Note: If the Unified Manager server is not initialized, a new browser window displays the first experience wizard. You must enter an initial email recipient to which email alerts will be sent, the SMTP server that will handle email communications, and whether AutoSupport is enabled to send information about your Unified Manager installation to technical support. The Unified Manager UI appears after you complete this information.
