Logging on to the web interface

Use this information to log on to the web interface.

To log on to the IMM web interface, complete the following steps:

  1. On a system that is connected to the server, open a web browser. In the Address or URL field, type the IP address or host name of the IMM to which you want to connect.
    If you are logging on to the IMM for the first time after installation, the IMM defaults to DHCP. If a DHCP host is not available, the IMM assigns a static IP address of The IMM network access tag provides the default host name of the IMM and does not require you to start the server.
  2. On the Login page, type the user name and password. If you are using the IMM for the first time, you can obtain the user name and password from your system administrator. All login attempts are documented in the system-event log.
    The IMM is set initially with a user name of USERID and password of PASSW0RD (with a zero, not a the letter O). You have read/write access. You must change the default password the first time you log on.
  3. Click Log in to start the session. The System Status and Health page provides a quick view of the system status.
If you boot to the operating system while in the IMM GUI and the message Booting OS or in unsupported OS is displayed under System Status > System State, disable Windows 2008 or 2012 firewall or type the following command in the Windows 2008 or 2012 console. This might also affect blue-screen capture features.
netsh firewall set icmpsetting type=8 mode=ENABLE

By default, the icmp packet is blocked by Windows firewall. The IMM GUI will then change to OS booted status after you change the setting as indicated above in both the Web and CLI interfaces.
