The system Dashboard provides access to status and services, configuration settings, and system-level administration tasks.

The Dashboard is the first screen that appears after you log in to the appliance management interface port (:9443).

The Dashboard provides access to various system management settings through a set of tabs at the top of the display.

Note:

For installations where the vCenter Servers are in linked-mode, the Dashboard includes information from all vCenter Servers registered to a system.
