Getting Started
Setting Up OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer for the First Time : Starting OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer : Entering the default user name and password
 

Entering the default user name and password

The first time you log on to OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, you must use the default user name, which is admin, and the default password, which is admin.
To enter the default user name and password:
1. Type admin in both the User name and the Password fields.
2. Click OK. One of the following occurs:
*If you are logging on to OpenEdge Management, the OpenEdge Management Configuration page opens in the management console, allowing you to set the necessary initial options.
*If you are logging on to OpenEdge Explorer, the OpenEdge Explorer Configuration page opens in the management console, allowing you to set the necessary initial options.
Note: After you make your initial configuration choices, you can access and change certain configuration options at any time.
Keep in mind the following details related to the default password admin:
*You use the default password admin only once—the first time you log on to OpenEdge Management or Open Edge Explorer. The configuration page that opens at the initial login requires you to change the default password before you can submit your initial setup choices and before you can use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.
*The new password you provide on the configuration page does not take effect until you stop and restart OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer. You do this by either shutting down and restarting the host machine or using the appropriate command-line interface (CLI) commands. See Using the command-line interface for more information.
You can now make initial configuration choices, as described in Choosing initial configuration options.
