To log in to HP SMH with Mozilla and Firefox:

  1. Navigate to https://hostname:2381/.

    If you are using Mozilla or Firefox to browse to an HP-UX system, then you can use port 2381 if you changed the default configuration to have autostart disabled and start on boot enabled. If you keep the default-installed configuration, you can use the following URI: http://hostname:2301/

    By default, HP-UX is installed with the autostart feature enabled. A daemon listens on port 2301 and only starts HP SMH on port 2381 when requested, then stops it again after a timeout period. See the smhstartconfig(1M) command for more information.

    You can find procedures on how to change the configuration variables in the previous chapters of this guide.

    The first time you browse to the HP SMH URI, the Website Certified by an Unknown Authority dialog box appears, asking you to indicate whether to trust the server. If you do not select Accept this certificate permanently, the Website Certified by an Unknown Authority dialog box appears every time you use a browser.

  2. Click OK.

    The Login page appears unless you have enabled Anonymous access, then the HP System Management Homepage appears.

  3. Enter the user name that is recognized by the operating system.

    If you have not yet added user groups into HP SMH security settings, then users must log in with an operating system account in the Administrators group for Windows or the operating system group root (which in turn contains the user root by default) for HP-UX and Linux. If the credentials cannot be authenticated, the user is denied access. In most cases, the administrator on Windows and root on HP-UX and Linux have administrator access on HP SMH.

  4. Enter the password that is recognized by the operating system.

  5. On HP-UX, click Sign In. On Linux and Windows, click Login. HP SMH appears.
