The Cluster Management Console is a web application that is installed on a VCS node. You must log in to the Cluster Management Console to manage your VCS cluster. To run the console, the local system (the system you use to run the console) must also be running a supported web browser.
To log in to the console
System is either a system name or the virtual IP address configured for the webip resource in the ClusterService service group.
On Windows, you can click Start>Programs>VERITAS Cluster Management Console to view the log in screen.
On UNIX, the default user account is the local root account. On Windows, the default user account is the account that was used to perform the VCS installation.
If the user account you are using to connect is not a domain account, enter the fully-qualified system name for the local host system. The local host is the cluster node running the Cluster Management Console.
If you are logging in to a secure cluster, you can set Domain Type to unixpwd to automatically set Domain to the local host name. You can then log in without being required to know the name of the node that is running the Cluster Management Console. This scenario is for the typical case in which log in authentication takes place on the local host where the Cluster Management Console is running.
You can also log in by authenticating on a cluster node other than the one where the Cluster Management Console is running. To authenticate on another node (alternate host), set Domain Type to unixpwd and then enter the alternate host name into the Domain box. In this scenario, a trust relationship must exist between the authentication broker installed on the local host and the one installed on the alternate host.
See your Veritas Cluster Server 5.0 Installation Guide for information on setting up trust relationships between authentication brokers.
