In an environment with an external Platform Services Controller, you can use the Platform Services Controller virtual appliance management interface (VAMI) to configure the appliance system settings. Settings include time synchronization, network settings, and SSH login settings. You can also change the root password, join the appliance to an Active Directory domain, and leave an Active Directory domain.

In an environment with an embedded Platform Services Controller, you manage the appliances that include both Platform Services Controller and vCenter Server.


  1. In a Web browser, go to the Web interface at https://platform_services_controller_ip:5480.
  2. If a warning message about an untrusted SSL certificate appears, resolve the issue based on company security policy and the Web browser that you are using.
  3. Log in as root.
    The default root password is the virtual appliance root password that you set when deploying the virtual appliance.


You can see the System Information page of the Platform Services Controller Appliance Management Interface.
