In order to start administering and monitoring your Universal Messaging Realm servers you need to launch the Universal Messaging Enterprise Manager. The Enterprise Manager is capable of connecting to multiple Universal Messaging realms at the same time, whether these are part of a cluster / federated namespace or simple standalone realms. A configuration file called realms.cfg
is created in your home directory which stores the Enterprise Manager's connection info, however the very first time you launch it a bootstrap RNAME environment variable can be used to override the default connection information. Subsequent launches will not depend on the environment variable as long as you save your connection information (see Realm Profiles
Launching on Windows platforms can be done by selecting the Enterprise Manager shortcut in the start menu.
You can also open a client command prompt and type a command of the following form:
where <UM_install_dir> is the installation root location and <UM_server_name> is the name of the Universal Messaging server.
Launching on Unix platforms can be done by executing the nenterprisemgr executable, which you can find under the installation directory at the following location:
When you start the Enterprise Manager, there is a login dialog in which you can enter a user ID and password. The user ID and password are only required for logging in if you have activated basic authentication. If you have not activated basic authentication, the password is ignored, but the user ID is still subject to the usual ACL checks in the Enterprise Manager.
See the section Basic Authentication
for information about setting up basic authentication.
