3.0 Installing the Access Manager Administration Console

Installation time: about 20 minutes.

What you need to create during installation

A username and password to use for the Access Manager administrator.

For a functioning system, you need an Administration Console for configuration and management, an Identity Server for authentication, and an Access Manager device for protecting resources such as an Access Gateway, an SSL VPN server, or a J2EE Agent. The Administration Console must be installed before you install any other Access Manager devices.
