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 Novell iManager 2.7.6 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.

    Because iManager 2.7 uses only Tomcat 5/5.5 for its Web server requirements, on platforms other than Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) you must specify the Tomcat port as part of the iManager URL. The default URL to start iManager 2.7 is as follows:

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

    iManager 2.7 on the OES 2 platform uses the following default iManager URL:

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

    Although slightly different iManager URLs might work on some platforms, Novell 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
