Logging In to Storage Gateway Management Console

Use the Storage Gateway management console to create, manage, and monitor file systems.

The URL to access the Storage Gateway management console is provided after you successfully install Storage Gateway. When you access the management console for the first time, a wizard prompts you to create the administrator credentials and your first file system.

Note

Because Storage Gateway uses a self-signed certificate for the HTTPS connection, your browser can display a warning that the SSL certificate couldn’t be verified. If you entered the correct public IP address of the Storage Gateway instance, you can safely ignore this warning. The steps to ignore this warning and go to the management console vary depending on the browser you use.

To log in to the management console

  1. Using a supported web browser, enter one of the following:

    • If you installed the software on an on-premises host, enter the URL provided by the installation script at the end of Storage Gateway installation:

      https://<storagegateway_hostname>:<port_number>

      For example:

      https://myStorageGatewayHost:443

    Note

    If you are unable to access Storage Gateway using the hostname, contact your network administrator. Depending on your network configuration, your Storage Gateway hostname might need to be added to DNS or you might need to use an IP address rather than the hostname.

    • If you are installed the software in an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute instance, enter the URL as follows:

      https://<instance_public_IP_address>:<port_number>

      For example:

      https://192.168.14.5:443

    Note

    See Getting the Instance Public IP Address for details.

    The console login page is displayed and you are prompted to set and confirm the password for the Storage Gateway admin user.

  2. Enter a password that meets the following requirements:

    • Use from 8 to 32 characters.
    • Must include at least one special character, one numerical character, one uppercase character, and one lowercase character.
