Logging in to the JIMS Server
You log in to the JIMS server over an HTTPS connection using the Juniper Identity Management Service Administrative Interface to perform configuration and monitoring tasks. The administrative interface enables you to configure the server dynamically, making changes to the JIMS server’s XML database without service interruption.
Before you begin, you need the username and password for a user in the local Administrator's group, which includes the "Domain Admins" group.
To log in to the JIMS server:
- From the Windows Start menu, select Juniper Networks
> JIMS Administrative Interface, right-click on JIMS Administrative
Interface, and then select Run as administrator.
The JIMS Administrative Interface GUI can be accessed only from the server on which the JIMS server is installed and running.
The Server Logon page appears.
- Type your username and password for the administrator’s
group, such as the domain administrator’s group.
For your username, you might need to include your domain name in the format: domain\username.
When you get a failure message while logging in to the JIMS server, or adding event or user info sources, you should try using the other form of the username. For example:
Pre-2000-domain-name\username, where username is the sAMAccountName in Active Directory.
firstname.lastname@example.org, where fqdn.com is the fully qualified domain name of the Active Directory domain.
- Click Connect.
The Juniper Identity Management Service Administrative Interface is now securely connected to the JIMS server.
- To reconnect, select File > Connect to bring up the Server Logon page.
