As you know, the addition of a Web-based UI was one of the biggest additions in ACSLS 8.0 versus previous versions. However, when attempting to login to the UI using the acsss account as the ACSLS Admin Guide suggests, you will receive an Authentication Failure message. The solution to this problem is to create a new Solaris user account to login with. In this example, I created a user called acsgui to use as the username and password.
Create New Account To Login to ACSLS 8.0 UI
- Login or su to the root user
- Create a new user with the username acsgui
- Set the password for this new user
- Login to the UI using the new username and password! https://[acsls_hostname]:6789
useradd -d /export/home/acsgui -m -s /bin/bash acsgui
