Configuring CloudPoint from your browser and signing in
The following figure shows where you are in the CloudPoint installation and configuration process.
Before you complete the steps in this section, make sure that you have deployed CloudPoint on your instance or physical machine.
The final steps to configure CloudPoint are performed from a browser. Before you proceed, ensure that the browser is supported by CloudPoint.
We recommend that you use Google Chrome.
To configure CloudPoint from your browser and sign in
- Open your browser and enter the following URL in the address bar:
Here, <cloudpoint_hostFQDN> represents the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the host on which you installed CloudPoint.
The configuration screen is displayed.
- In the Admin Account Setup section, enter a username and password. They are configured as the CloudPoint administrator username and password.
The user name should meet the following requirement:
A valid email address
If you forget the admin password, you can configure CloudPoint to send instructions for restoring the password to this email address.
The specified email address should not include an underscore character.
CloudPoint currently does not support adding users whose email addresses contain the underscore character.
The admin password should meet the following requirements:
At least six characters
No & (ampersand) character
- Under Host information, in the Host names or IP field, enter any additional host names or IP address that you use to connect to this CloudPoint host and then click the + icon to add that entry to the list.
Repeat this for each additional host name that you wish to add.
The specified names or IP address are added to the list of host names to use for configuring CloudPoint. The names in the list are used to generate a server certificate for the CloudPoint host. If you connect to the host using different names (for example, myserver, myserver.mydomain, or myserver.mydomain.mycompany.com), then ensure that you add all the names here if you want to enable CloudPoint access using those names.
The names you specify here must point to the same CloudPoint host. The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the host is added by default.
If you are integrating CloudPoint with Veritas NetBackup, use host names only.
- Under Select Your License, select the CloudPoint trial license that you wish to activate in your CloudPoint deployment.
Pick from one of the following options depending on your requirement:
A Freemium license is a permanent license that does not expire and allows you to try out a subset of the CloudPoint features. This license lets you protect up to 10 TB of front-end terabyte (FETB) data.
An Evaluation license is a 60-day time-bound license that allows you to try out all of the CloudPoint features. This license lets you protect up to 1000 TB of FETB data.
The selected trial license is installed on the CloudPoint instance during the initial configuration and allows you to use the features that are entitled as part of that license.
You can upgrade to a paid license any time after the initial configuration is completed.
- Select Help us improve CloudPoint by automatically sending your usage information to Veritas to enable the Telemetry service. When enabled, this service collects your CloudPoint usage information and shares it with Veritas anonymously.
- Read the End User License Agreement and then select the I agree to the terms and conditions option.
- Click Configure to begin the initial configuration process.
An installation status screen is displayed as Veritas CloudPoint configures the remaining services. This process can take a few minutes.
- After the installation completes, click Refresh browser. If you see the login screen, it confirms that CloudPoint is installed and configured successfully.
- On the login screen, enter the CloudPoint administrator username and password and then click Sign In.
The username and password are the same that you specified on the initial configuration screen in step 2 earlier.
The coffee screen is displayed. The coffee screen provides a quick high level overview of your CloudPoint environment. After you configureCloudPoint to protect your assets, you can use this coffee screen to get a quick update on the overall protection status.
- Your next step is to configure one or more plug-ins. On the coffee screen, click Manage cloud and arrays.
Plug-ins are the software modules that discover assets in your cloud or on-premise environment.
