Set Supervisor Password dialog

The supervisor account is the default account for accessing all features of the mangement console. The supervisor is a member of all roles and no permissions can be removed from supervisor. However, the supervisor does not have Active Directory credentials and therefore is blocked from performing Active Directory tasks.

To set the supervisor password

  1. On the Set supervisor password dialog, enter a password for the supervisor account and click Next.

    The Summary dialog displays.

  2. To log on using the console supervisor account, use supervisor as the user name.

Note: The supervisor is the only account that has rights to change the supervisor account password in System Settings. See Reset the supervisor password for details.

Summary dialog

To complete the Management Console for Unix Setup wizard

  1. On the Summary dialog, click Finish.

    The Management Console for Unix log-in screen opens.

Management Console for Unix Log On page

Whenever you launch the mangement console, you must enter an authorized account to proceed. The Management Console for Unix features that are available depend on the account with which you log in.

To use the core version of the mangement console to manage local Unix users and groups and to access system settings, you must use the supervisor account (that is, you must log on with the supervisor user name). However, to use the Active Directory features of Management Console for Unix, you must log on with an Active Directory account that has been granted access to the mangement console. That is, defined during the post-installation configuration. See Set up console access by role for details. To add additional accounts to this access list, see Adding (or Removing) role members.

To log on to the mangement console

  1. Enter the user name and password and click Sign In.


    • the supervisor account name
    • a sAMAccountName, which uses the default domain
    • a User Principal Name in the form, username@domain

    The mangement console opens and displays the user name you specified in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

  2. To log on using a different account, click the authenticated user's login name and click Sign Out. Then sign back on using a different account.

    The Log-on page redisplays, allowing you to enter a different account.

Management Console components

Note: What a user sees in the mangement console is based on the rules that pertain to the role the user is assigned. A user can only access and perform tasks specified for that role.

The mangement console consists of the following main components:

  • Tabs
  • Views
  • Task Progress pane
  • Status bar
