Attaching the Global Console to a Domain Manager (such as VoIP Availability Manager) or to a Global Manager requires an VMware Smart Assurance user account. The default administration account is admin for username and changeme for password, and the default operator account is oper for username and oper for password.

For users logged on with an administration account, the Global Console includes a Configure menu, which enables administrators to open the Domain Manager Administration Console and the Global Manager Administration Console, to edit Map Icons, and so on.

The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides information about changing the password for the default administration account (recommended) and configuring access privileges. The VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager Configuration Guide provides information on configuring permissions to perform specific console operations.
