Log in to the SEM web console

Use the web console to manage and monitor the SEM application.

  1. Open a web browser and enter the web console URL that was provided when you configured the SEM VM on either VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V, for example:

    http(s)://<IP address of SEM VM>:8080/sem/

  2. Enter your user name and password.

    Only existing administrator, auditor, and monitor users can log in to SEM. Contacts cannot log in. See About SEM roles for details.

The console restores the view that was open the last time you closed the console.

When you connect to the web console for the first time, SEM prompts you to authenticate to the host Manager. If you have additional Managers associated with the console, log in to configure each Manager or view their events. When you log out, you are disconnected from additional Managers in the web console. To disconnect from the host Manager, close the browser window.

Supported and unsupported URLs

If you are using the hostname for the URL, add the SEM hostname or IP address into DNS.

Port 8080 is unsecure and is automatically disabled after activation has been completed. Port 8443 is always available.
