After you install vRealize Operations Manager, you secure the console of each node in the cluster by logging in for the first time.

1

Locate the node console in vCenter or by direct access. In vCenter, use Alt+F1 to access the login prompt.

For security, vRealize Operations Manager remote terminal sessions are disabled by default.

2

Log in as root.

vRealize Operations Manager prevents you from accessing the command prompt until you create a root password.

3

When prompted for a password, press Enter.

4

When prompted for the old password, press Enter.

5

When prompted for the new password, enter the root password that you want, and note it for future reference.

6

Re-enter the root password.

7

Log out of the console.
