  1. Open a Web browser and enter the URL for your vCloud Usage Meter instance: https://vcloud_usage_meter_ip_address.
  2. Log in as usagemeter or as a user from an LDAP domain.
    You configure the password for the usagemeter user account during the deployment of the vCloud Usage Meter appliance.
