Users who display dashboard viewlets in a web browser, or want to use the web console, require the following software:

  • One of the following web browsers:

    • Internet Explorer 7.0 and 6.0 with Service Pack 1

    • Firefox 1.5.x

    • Browser that supports Java JRE 1.6.15 or later


      Only browsers running on HP-UX,Linux and Solaris operating systems are supported.

      Use Firefox instead of Microsoft IE if you need to use an IPv6 literal address to access the Web Console or Business Dashboard.

  • Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 which includes the 1.6.x web browser Plug-in

    When using Internet explorer with JRE 1.6, exiting the Web Console or Business Dashboard by choosing File > Exit does not clear the display on the browser window. The browser window displays whatever was displayed in the window at the time you exited the application. This does not impact the functionality. Instead of exiting the browser, you can either:

  • Close the Web browser

  • Type a new URL in the Web browser
