Log in to the Privilege Management Console

You need to be able to resolve the DNS before you can log in to PMC. If you intend to use a public DNS that has not yet been created, you need to create manual entries in the host files of the machines that need to communicate, such as the cluster nodes (including where the portal is installed).

To log in to PMC:

Navigate to the server URL of PMC. It is the DNS of your SSL certificate with the PMC port number 9443 appended to it.

You can also get the server URL from your web.config file.

  1. Navigate to the web.config file. The default location for the web.config file on the portal node is c:\inetpub\wwwroot\iC3.
  2. Open the web.config file with a text editor and locate the following entry:
  3. <add key="Avecto.IC3.Authentication.WSFederation.Realm" value="https://test.ic3.avecto.com:9443" />

    This contains the server URL you need to log in to PMC.

  4. Enter the user name and password that was either manually set up for you by your PMC management database creator or that you inserted through the PMC deployment wizard on the Authentication Tab.
  5. When you first log in, you are asked to confirm the time and date settings. You can change these if required.

You can now configure the connection to the Privilege Management MMC PMC snap-in.
