1.1 Resetting the Vibe Administrator Password

When you first install Novell Vibe, the Vibe administrator username is admin and the password is admin. When you first log in to the Vibe site as the administrator, you should change the administrator password from the default password to a secure password of your own choosing. If you followed the instructions in Accessing Your Basic Vibe Site as the Site Administrator in Basic Installation in the Novell Vibe 3.2 Installation Guide, you have already completed this very important task.

If you have not already reset the Vibe administrator password:

  1. In your Web browser, specify one of the following URLs, depending on whether or not you are using a secure SSL connection:


    Replace vibe_hostname with the hostname or fully qualified domain name of the Vibe server that you have set up in DNS. If you configured the HTTP ports correctly during installation, you do not need to include the port number in the Vibe URL.
