Log on to the WorkSpaces Manager EC2 instance, go to your preferred browser and go to http://localhost.
From a browser, connect to the Private IP address of the WorkSpaces Manager portal instance from a device in the ‘RDPLocation’ CIDR range specified above in ‘Specify Stack Details’. Should you get this message, you can either enter your DOMAIN\USERNAME and password, or you can go to Internet Explorer > Internet Options and add the website address (e.g., http://private-ip-of-your-instance) to Trusted Sites or Local Intranet. You can also provide your portal with a friendly portal name address (e.g., http://workspacesmanager.domain.com) which means that it will most likely be accepted from most browsers in your organisation without amending the Trusted Sites or Local Intranet settings. To give it a friendly name, see the section ‘Securing the Portal and adding a friendly portal address’.
Once you successfully connect to the portal, you will be presented with a setup screen to enter information for:
• License key (obtained in Apply For License Key)
• Active Directory settings
• SMTP settings (not mandatory)
• Amazon Web Services settings
• Additional options settings (not mandatory)
The license key will have been sent via email when you registered on the AWS Marketplace in Apply For License Key
For any assistance with the License key or setting up the WorkSpaces Manager Appliance please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an example of the form completed.
After saving, please wait for up to 30 seconds for the next screen to appear. Again, make sure that the instance has Internet access otherwise it will give you an error saying that the license code is invalid.
Once complete, WSM will display the administration section of the portal on the Options\Settings page. Further settings can be configured here once the portal is live. The various sections are covered below.
