Web Interface Overview
On This Page
The NVIDIA Onyx package equipped with web-based GUI that accepts input and provides output by generating webpages that can be viewed by the user using a web browser.
The maximum allowed number of WebUI session is 225. Trying to open new sessions beyond this limitation is rejected.
Upon initial login through the web interface, if the initial login was not completed through the CLI the following prompt will appear (by default, password hardening is enabled).
The password may be required to be changed upon initial login through the web interface if initial login was not completed through the CLI.
Upon initial login do the following:
Login as admin.
If the following screen appears (this screen will appear if default password was never changed), type in a new password ("admin" may be reused as the new password).
Only after successfully changing the admin password (this must be done first), change the monitor password. If the password is not changed, all pages (besides the logout page) will be locked.
After successfully changing the monitor password, the home page may be accessed and the system may be used.
Click on the home page link or wait 5 seconds until the countdown reaches 0 and the page is redirected automatically.
Warning: Entering the monitor user before the default password is changed will block the system (all pages besides the logout page will be blocked).
