ECS Administrative Web UI¶
Login to the Web UI¶
The WebUI uses SSL and a self-signed certificate to help protect your
session from casual eves-dropping. Take the IP of your first ECS node,
fire up your browser, and point
https:// at it. For this example,
the latest Google Chrome browser was used.
You cannot add, change, or remove administrative users in this build. Use the default below.
Username: rootPassword: ChangeMe
Open Settings, then Licensing and upload the
located in the ecs-single-node / ecs-multi-node folder. The UI will
not automatically update the license view in this release. Navigating
away from page and returning will prompt it to update. You may need to
try a few times before it updates. Once it does, you should see
something like this:
Create Storage vPool¶
Open Manage, then Storage Pools and create a storage pool. Keep the name simple, and add all nodes to the pool. Click Save.
There’s a known issue in this build that causes the Storage Pools view to appear frozen for about 1-2 minutes after provisioning begins. Unlike with the license view case, this view will update on its own. Once it’s updated, you should see something similar to:
Create Virtual Data Center¶
Open Manage, then Virtual Data Center and create a Virtual Data Center using the below screenshot as a guide. Please wait for up to 20 minutes after creating a Storage vPool before creating a Virtual Data Center. There are several background tasks that must complete, and for object to fully initialize.
Create Replication Group¶
Open Manage, then Replication Group and create a Replication Group using the below as an example. Currently only one VDC in a replication group is supported.
Open Manage, then Namespace. Set up a Simple Namespace with a name such as “ns”. Input a namespace username to use with the namespace, such as “ecs_user”. Select the replication group for the namespace, and click Save at the very bottom.
