The login page can be used for logging on to the Appliance Management Console and also the NetBackup Appliance Web Console. You must enter AMS user credentials to access the Appliance Management Console. If you enter the regular admin credentials on the login page, you can access the NetBackup Appliance Web Console for the specific appliance.

To log on to the Appliance Management Console

Note:

Before logging on the Appliance Management Console, you must set the appliance as AMS. You must also grant an AMS role to a user from the AMS shell menu.

  1. On a system that has a network connection to the appliance, start a web browser.

    Table: Recommended browsers for Appliance Management Console lists the recommended browsers for accessing the Appliance Management Console.

    In the web browser address bar, enter the following:

    https://host.domain where host.domain is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the AMS and can also be an IP address.

    The hostname is the label that is assigned to your appliance to identify the device in your network.

  2. Enter the credentials of a user with an AMS role.

    You can access the Home page on the Appliance Management Console.

    Note:

    You must enter AMS user credentials to access the Appliance Management Console. If you enter the regular admin credentials on the login page, you will access the NetBackup Appliance Web Console for the specific appliance.
