Starting the VSM

Publication Date:  2012-07-28 Views:  192 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
l           VSM services run as background processes. Maintain the VSM services using a System Monitor client.

l           The client is installed at the same time as the VSM software. The client described in this topic is the one installed on the server.

l           During installation of the VSM software, only one default VSM user, that is, the admin user, is provided. The admin user is the administrator of a VSM and has the highest rights of the VSM.

None
Handling Process
Step 1     Log in to the OS as a user with administrator rights. The system automatically starts the database and VSM services.



SQL Server 2008: If the database is not started, choose Start > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2008 > Configuration Tools > SQL Server Configuration Manager > SQL Server Services, right-click SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) and choose Start to start the database. If the database has been started, the manual operation is not required.

SQL Server 2000: If the database is not started, choose Start > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server > Service Manager, and then click Start/Continue to start the database. If the database has been started, the manual operation is not required.

If VSM services have not been started, double-click the  shortcut icon on the desktop or run the startnms.bat file in the VSM installation path \server\bin to start VSM services manually. If the VSM has been started, the manual operation is not required.

When you run a .bat file on Windows 2008, a user account control dialog box may be displayed. In this case, click Yes to allow the program to make changes to the computer.

                                Step 2     Check the shortcut icons.


If you cannot log in to the server through the GUI, skip this step.

The following shortcut icons are displayed on the desktop:

l           VSM Client

l           VSM System Monitor

                                Step 3     Choose Start > All Programs > Network Management System > VSM System Monitor or double-click the associated shortcut icon on the desktop to start the System Monitor.

                                Step 4     In the Login dialog box, enter a user name and password to access the System Monitor window. The user name is admin and the initial password is Admin@123 by default. When you log in to the System Monitor for the first time, you must change the initial password.

                                Step 5     Check whether VSM processes can be properly started. The processes whose startup mode is manual must be started manually.

                                Step 6     Start a VSM client.

1.         On the desktop, double-click the VSM Client shortcut icon.

2.         In the dialog box that is displayed, enter a VSM user name and password. If you have changed the password for the admin user when logging in to the System Monitor, enter the new password. The password for logging in to the System Monitor client is the same as that for the VSM client.



There are two data transmission modes, namely, Common and Security(SSL). You can query data transmission modes on the server. The default data transmission mode is Common. For details, see 19.19 How to Set the Communication Mode on the VSM server for the Single-Server System (Windows).
