3.4. Logging In to and Out of the Administration Portal

Access the Administration Portal using a web browser.
  1. In a web browser, navigate to https://your-manager-fqdn/ovirt-engine, replacing your-manager-fqdn with the fully qualified domain name that you provided during installation.


    The first time that you connect to the Administration Portal, you are prompted to trust the certificate being used to secure communications between your browser and the web server. You must accept this certificate. Refer to the instructions to install the certificate authority in Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome.
  2. Click Administration Portal. An SSO login page displays. SSO login enables you to log in to the Administration and User Portals at the same time.
  3. Enter your User Name and Password. If you are logging in for the first time, use the user name admin in conjunction with the password that you specified during installation.
  4. Select the domain against which to authenticate from the Domain list. If you are logging in using the internal admin user name, select the internal domain.
  5. Click Log In.
  6. You can view the Administration Portal in multiple languages. The default selection will be chosen based on the locale settings of your web browser. If you would like to view the Administration Portal in a language other than the default, select your preferred language from the drop-down list on the welcome page.
To log out of the Red Hat Virtualization Administration Portal, click your user name in the header bar and click Sign Out. You are logged out of all portals and the Manager welcome screen displays.
