Log into the SolarWinds Platform Web Console to use and manage SCM

As with all SolarWinds Platform products, you'll use Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) by logging into the SolarWinds Platform Web Console to manage all aspects of SCM.

In a web browser, go to: [http://hostnameOrIPAddress:port] where:

  • hostnameOrIPAddress is the hostname or IP address of the SolarWinds Platform server where SCM is installed.
  • port is the SolarWinds Platform Web Console port defined for the website. This is configurable during installation. The default port is 8787.

You'll see the SolarWinds Platform server login page:

The first time you log in, you'll be asked to create a user name and password. Later, you'll also want to create users with their own credentials and groups, each with their own specialized views and permissions.

If you're logging into a new installation of SCM, you'll be prompted to add a password to the main Admin account.
