Accessing Orchestrator UI

In this article

    To access the Orchestrator UI, perform the following steps:

    1. In a web browser, navigate to the Orchestrator UI web address.

    The address consists of a FQDN of the Orchestrator server and the website port specified during installation (by default, 9898). Note that the Orchestrator UI is available over HTTPS.

    https://<hostname>:<port>

     

    Important

    Starting from version 4.0, Internet Explorer is no longer supported. To access the Orchestrator UI, use Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

    1. If you log in for the first time, specify credentials of the local Administrator who performed Orchestrator installation. The user name must be specified in the DOMAIN\USERNAME format.

    To authenticate using the credentials provided when logging into the system, select the Log in as current user check box.

     

    Tip

    To be able to log in as the current user, you must first do the following:

    1. Complete the Initial Configuration Wizard as described in section After You Install.
    2. Enable the Automatic logon with current user name and password option in the security setting of your browser.

    In future, you can configure users and roles to grant access to the Orchestrator UI. For more information, see Assigning User Roles and Permissions.

    Configuring Trusted Connection

    The Orchestrator UI uses SSL to ensure secure data communication between Orchestrator and a web browser.

    When you install Orchestrator, you can generate or choose a self-signed certificate. In this case, when you try to access the Orchestrator UI in a web browser, the browser will display a warning notifying that the connection is untrusted (although it is secured with SSL).

    Configuring Trusted Connection

    To eliminate the warning, import the self-signed certificate to client machines (the machines from which you plan to access the Orchestrator UI website). To learn how to import SSL certificates, see this Microsoft KB article.

    If you want to use the certificate generated during installation, perform the following steps:

    1. Log in to the machine where Orchestrator is installed.
    2. Open the Microsoft Management Console snap-in.
    1. Navigate to Certificates > Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates.
    2. Export the Veeam Self-Signed Certificate following the instructions provided in this Microsoft KB article.
    1. Import the Veeam Self-Signed Certificate to client machines.

     

    Tip

    If you still have issues accessing the Orchestrator UI, check your browser settings to ensure that the Orchestrator UI site is included in the Trusted Sites list.

    Logging Out

    To log out of the Orchestrator UI, at the top right corner of the Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator window, click the user name and then click Logout.
