When you log in to DCImanager for the first time, the preliminary setup form will open. You can create the first location and racks.
To add a location and racks:
- Enter a location Name.
- Specify the IP address of the server-location and its SSH-port. You may choose a DCImanager server for the location.
- Specify the Root-password to access the location server.
- Specify the Name or number of the first rack. DCImanager will automatically assign the numbers to all the racks that were added. Eg. if you enter the name myrack_1 and Number 3, DCImanager will create 3 racks with the names myrack_1, myrack_2, and myrack_3.
- Specify the Number of racks in the location and Height of rack in units.
- Click on Add.
After adding the location, you need to configure it. For more information, see Configuring a location.
