ONTAP Discussions

Can't access FAS2040 web GUI




We have a FAS2040 and we are doing an inital setup and trying to get access to the web GUI. We go through the inital setup and add the HTTP license. After, we try to access the root file to add the ontap install. We get asked for credientials and enter them but get denied access or we do not have permission. We are on an admin account with no restrictions. We have tried every combination of username and passwords but with no luck. If we try to access the GUI without the ontap file installed we get an error saying "servlets are not enabled", that is in chrome. If we try to access it through IE it is a Page Can't be Displayed. Any help is welcomed.




GHowe -


The web GUI (Filerview) is not supported in 8.X.


Download and use OnCommand System Manager instead.
