Here are the steps to initialize the IMDC server on the RedHat box.


DataCenter - Unable to run settings to configure it

The message comes up when no admin password is set, as a security measure. You'll need to set the password via the command-line, like this:


sudo /usr/local/imdc/sbin/imdc stop

sudo /usr/local/imdc/sbin/imdc --password=

sudo /usr/local/imdc/sbin/imdc start

With the password set, you'll be able to reach the web interface from a different machine and finish the remaining configuration..


So on your Windows desktop,

Open a browser

Go to https://IPofRedHatServer:8182


This will open the IMDC management web page so you can configure your reports and this is also used to configure external authentication if needed.
