Ops Manager 4 and Java Management Console

I'm not sure if it is possible, but I would like to have the Management Console Java Application launch on a machine, and auto login.  Is there a config or a switch I can use to accomplish this?

Re: Ops Manager 4 and Java Management Console

You could certainly auto-launch it by putting it in your Windows Startup folder (assuming you're using Windows) or .profile (if Linux).

I do not think there is a way to have it automatically log into the DFM server. I don't believe we save your credentials anywhere.

Re: Ops Manager 4 and Java Management Console

I'm assuming you want NMC to be launched as soon as your system boots. You can do this by the following steps.


1. go to your StartUp dirrector in start -> Programs(or All Programs) -> StartUp. Click on the folder and startup folder opens.

2. Right click mouse and new -> Shortcut.

3. Add the target as C:\Program Files\Netapp\Management Console\bin\nmconsole.exe or where ever you've installed you NMC.

4. Next time you reboot your system, NMC will start on its own.

Linux: You must set the DISPLAY environment variable to a valid X11 server display.

1. Create a synbolic link to you your NMC like  /usr/bin/nmconsole-Rsumo3.0.1xN_100925_0330 using command

     ln -s /usr/bin/nmconsole-Rsumo3.0.1xN_100925_0330 /etc/init.d/nmconsole-Rsumo3.0.1xN_100925_0330

Remembering password is not supported as of now.

warm regards,

I guess what I am trying to do is currently not possibledue to the credentials not being saved.  I guess I will have to come up with a service account for the shared console.
