OverviewWhen you deploy an SDP Applicance in a VM or a server it has 3 modules
1. Webmin (https://IP:10000)
2. Admin (https://IP/admin)
3. SDP (https://IP)
Some times you may have access to the Webmin portal, but might not be able to reach the Admin or the SDP portal.
CauseThere is an entry in the /etc/hosts file which is needed in order to gain access of the Admin and SDP Portal. This entry is there by default, but might be missing in some versions of the OVF File.
This entry points to the DNS name configured.
ResolutionLog into a CLI session of the SDP VM instance (SSH - IP) and login with admin/exinda
Go to /etc/hosts file and add an entry for - DNS name and IP address.
sudo vi /etc/hosts
Go to Insert mode (by pressing i) and type the following
- where ExindaSDP is my hostname and 192.168.10.1 is the IP of the SDP VM Instance/Appliance
Exit out of the editor. If you are using "vi" then press escape, colon, wq! to exit and save the config.
Reboot the SDP VM/Appliance. You should now have access to the admin and SDP portal.
