To establish a connection to the UMS Server, proceed as follows:

  1. Start the UMS Console.
  2. Click on System > Connect to.
  3. Enter the access data:
    • Server: Host name of the UMS server. If you are logging on to the UMS Console of the server, enter localhost.
    • Port: Port on which the GUI server of the UMS receives UMS Console queries. Default: 8443. You can change the port using the UMS Administrator; see Settings.
    • User name: User name for the connection between the UMS Console and database. When setting up the UMS for the first time, this is the user name of the database user account which was created while the UMS Server was being installed. If you belong to a domain configured in the UMS, enter @.
    • Password: Password for the connection between the UMS Console and database. When setting up the UMS for the first time, this is the password of the database user account which was created while the UMS Server was being installed.


  4. Click on Connect.


The data entered under Server, Port and User name will be saved for subsequent connection procedures. The next time you establish a connection, you will only need to enter the password. The server and user information last used are also stored. You can delete stored logon data under Misc > Settings > General > Clear login history.
