Managing Nodes from the Web Console

The SolarWinds Web Console administrator manages the SolarWinds Website using the commands listed in the various categories on the Settings page. From the Web Console, the administrator can manage nodes, groups, accounts, alerts, views, and settings. The administrator can also manage the look and feel of SolarWinds SAM and view information about available product updates.

To manage the SolarWinds Web Console, navigate to the Settings page:

  1. Log on to your SolarWinds Web Console with an Administrator account and then click Settings.
    Note: Initially, Admin is the default administrator user ID with a blank password. You can change the password later using the Account Manager. The Node Management feature is accessible by clicking Manage Nodes either in the header of any All Nodes resource or in the Node & Group Management grouping of the Website Administration page.
