The articles coming up will be discussing about each part or segment of GUI, step by step. This introductory article will be discussing that, how you can launch the administrative interface in your StoneFly Storage Concentrator.

The administrative interface resides on the Storage Concentrator. It is run from a network computer via a browser which can access the network where the Storage Concentrator is located.

Supported browsers include:

  • Netscape 4.7 or later (Windows PC and Linux)
  • Internet Explorer 5.0 or later (Windows PC only)
  • Mozilla Firefox

To access the administrative interface, use the steps that follow:

  1. Launch your web browser.
  2. Type the IP address for the Management Port of the Storage Concentrator in the address field of the browser. For more information, refer to the Setup Guide, “Configuring the Network Settings.”

The address field in the browser must include https:// to access the administrative interface.

The following login screen appears.

Accessing System Management Functions

To perform system management functions, you must log in with a user ID and password that is configured with administrative privileges.

Passwords must be between 6 to 15 alphanumeric characters with one character being a numeric character. Passwords cannot be the same as the corresponding username. StoneFly validates only the first eight characters during login. Characters after 8 are ignored, but supported for user convenience. For more information on creating users, see “Adding Users”

When logging in for the first time, the administrator can use the following: User ID: stonefly. Password: stonefly. It is strongly recommended that the stonefly password be changed at the initial configuration. It is also recommended that each system administrator have an individual user ID and password. For more information on creating users, see “Adding Users”.

1 Enter your User ID.

2 Enter your Password.

3 Press Enter or click Submit. The Storage Concentrator home screen appears.

If you attempt to log in with an administrator user ID and password that are in use, a warning message dialog box appears.

If this screen appears, choose one of the following options:

1 Click OK – This logs you in and logs off the user who is logged in with the user ID and password you entered.

2 Click Cancel – The initial login screen appears. Repeat steps 1-3 using a different user ID and password.
