This topic describes how to log on to a cluster.
On the View menu, click Expand.
On the View menu, click Stop when an active panel appears as the view panel.
If the appropriate panel is highlighted, click Login on the File menu.
If the cluster is running in secure mode:
Enter the credentials of a native user.
You can use nis or nis+ accounts or accounts set up on the local system. If you do not enter the name of the domain, VCS assumes the domain is the local system.
If the user does not have root privileges on the system, VCS assigns guest privileges to the user. To override these privileges, add the domain user to the VCS administrators' list.
The Java Console connects to the cluster using the authentication broker and the domain type provided by the engine. To change the authentication broker or the domain type, click Advanced.
Select a new broker and domain type, as required.
The Server Credentials dialog box displays the credentials of the cluster service to which the console is connected.
To disable this dialog box from being displayed every time you connect to the cluster, select the Do not show during startup check box
Click OK to connect to the cluster.
The animated display shows various objects, such as service groups and resources, being transferred from the server to the console.
Cluster Explorer is launched automatically upon initial logon, and the icons in the cluster panel change color to indicate an active panel.
