The first time you start the virtual machine, the CML server will start the initial configuration wizard for the application. You will see this wizard in the VMware console for the VM. You must complete the initial configuration wizard to create the initial user accounts and provide details before you can start using Cisco Modeling Labs' web UI.
The configuration wizard will not continue if CPU options have not been enabled. You should also ensure that the ISO file has been connected as a CD/DVD drive in the virtual machine settings.
Select CML-Personal or CML-Enterprise.
Create a system administrator account.
Define the username and password for the system administrator account for the
CML server. We recommend using a complex
password for better security. The system administrator cannot be used to log
into CML's HTML5 UI, but it has permissions
to manage the CML server itself. You can use
the system administrator account to log into the System Administration Cockpit, which runs on the CML server's management IP address on port
Create an initial user account.
Define the username and password for the initial account for the CML application. We recommend using a complex password for better security. You can use this account to log into CML's HTML5 UI or to authenticate with the web services API. The initial user will have application administrative access in the Lab Manager but will not be able to make system changes with the System Administration Cockpit. The initial user account may also create labs and run simulations.
Provide network information.
Select Static or DHCP (default) addressing. The CML server addressing may also be changed after deployment. See Administering Cisco Modeling Labs 2.0 for detailed instructions on configuring networking and the management IP address for your installation.
A final dialog displays your settings. Confirm the settings and preess the Apply button.
If any of the settings are incorrect, press the Back button to return to previous steps and make any required changes.
Wait for the CML server to reset.
The CML server is now available. You can log into the UI by visiting the URL that is displayed in the virtual machine's console with a supported web browser. To manage the CML server, log into the System Administration Cockpit with the system administrator account. If the UI is available at https://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn, then the System Administration Cockpit should be available at https://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn:9090.
What to do next
Before you can start any network simulations, you must apply a license to activate your CML server.
