To sign on to the administrative console, you must know the root user distinguished name (DN) or the common name (CN) of a root user DN.

For example, if the DN created when the server was installed is cn=Directory Manager, you can use Directory Manager as the username to sign on to the administrative console.


To run the administrative console in an external container, such as Tomcat, see Deploying the administrative console.

  • To access the administrative console, go to https://<host>:<port>/console/login.
    <host> is the hostname of the server, and <port> is the port on which the server accepts connections from HTTPS clients. This was configured during the install.
