Configure the VirtualWisdom Virtual Distributed Edition Cluster

After deploying the VirtualWisdom OVA images to your three VMs and allowing them to start, you must form the Distributed Virtual Edition cluster, following the steps below.

  1. Enter the following URL into your browser, replacing "IPADDRESS" with the IP address of your intended manager node. Be sure to include the port number, 9443, as shown below. Sign in using the default VirtualWisdom administrator credentials: Administrator/admin.

    https://IPADDRESS:9443/manager

In the next steps, you'll configure additional VirtualWisdom settings.
