2.2 Accessing iManager

Accessing iManager varies based on the iManager version (server-based or workstation) and the platform on which iManager is running.

For information on installing iManager, see the NetIQ iManager Installation Guide.

2.2.1 Accessing Server-based iManager

To access server-based iManager:

  1. Enter one of the following in the Address (URL) field of a supported Web browser.

    • To access iManager on the Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) platform:

      Secure URL: https://<server ip address>/nps/iManager.html

    • To access iManager on a non-OES 2 platform:

      Secure URL: https://<server ip address>:8443/nps/iManager.html

      NOTE:iManager 2.7.7 uses only Tomcat 5 and 5.5 for its Web server requirements. On non-OES 2 platforms, you must specify the Tomcat port in the URL.

    In the examples, the IP address in <server ip address> can be either IPv4 or IPv6. For example, when accessing iManager on the OES 2 platform, the URL can either of the following:

    • IPv4:

    • IPv6: https://[2001:db8::6]/nps/iManager.html

    Although slightly different iManager URLs might work on some platforms, NetIQ recommends using these URLs for consistency.

  2. Log in using your user name, password and tree name.

2.2.2 Accessing iManager Workstation

To access iManager Workstation:

  1. Execute the appropriate iManager Workstation startup script.

    Linux: Navigate to the imanager/bin directory and execute ./iManager.sh.

    NOTE:If you plan to run iManager Workstation as a non-root user in the future, do not run iManager as root the first time.

    Windows: Execute imanager\bin\iManager.bat.

  2. Log in by using your user name, password, and tree name
