Single Login allows a link within an HP Systems Insight Manager page to establish an authenticated browser session to a managed system that supports Single Login without requiring users to reenter their user names and passwords. However, if you are trying to establish an authenticated browser session with another instance of HP Systems Insight Manager running on another system, you must reenter your user name and password. Single Login links exist wherever there is a link to another system.
Managed Systems must be set up to trust an HP Systems Insight Manager system before accepting a Single Login command. Trust is set up at the system by importing the HP Systems Insight Manager system certificate into the Trusted Management Systems List of the system. Refer to Trusted Certificates - Require Trusted Certificates.
Logging in to HP Systems Insight Manager allows access to HP Systems Insight Manager and determines what authorizations you have in HP Systems Insight Manager. Browsing to HP Systems Insight Manager using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypts all information between the browser and HP Systems Insight Manager, including login credentials. SSL securely encrypts the password, and helps prevent someone from capturing and replaying a valid logon sequence.
The Login page has three fields:
User Name. The users user name.
Password. The password for the user name.
Domain Name. This field is displayed in Windows environments only.
After the credentials are securely received by HP Systems Insight Manager, HP Systems Insight Manager validates the account, verifies that browsing is being done from a valid IP address for that account, and authenticates the credentials against the Windows domain. Details about accounts can be found in Administering the Software - Users and Authorizations.
Some failures are caused by failure in the operating system, some by failure within HP Systems Insight Manager. Use the operating system User Management tools to address these potential login failures:
Login credentials are not entered correctly. Passwords are case-sensitive.
The account being entered has been deleted or has been disabled or locked out.
The password for the account has expired or must be changed.
The following are reasons for login failure within HP Systems Insight Manager and can be addressed on the Users and Authorizations pages.
The account being entered is not an account for HP Systems Insight Manager.
You are attempting to log in from an IP address that is not valid for the specified account.
