Run BeyondInsight for Unix & Linux

Log in to the console using a supported browser: https://localhost:4443. If this is your first time logging into the console, the first-run wizard starts.


If the wizard starts and this is not the first time the console has been run, do not go through the wizard again. All data in the system will be lost. Contact BeyondTrust Technical Support.

Set Up the Console Using the First-Run Wizard

If this is the first time you are logging on to the console, complete the wizard and configure system settings including:

  • Administrator account: Create the account that you will use to log in to the console.
  • Active Directory connection: Configure a connection to an Active Directory forest. Active Directory users and groups can be used in Privilege Management for Unix and Linux policy and can log in to the console.
  • Settings: Configure default settings, including default policy type, authentication timeout values, and security level.
  • Credentials: Create credentials for remote hosts. The credentials are used to connect to the remote hosts.

Review the settings and save. You are now able to log in to the console using the administrator account you created in the wizard.
