Log in to Cisco ISE
Log in to Cisco ISE using your administrator username and password.
During the initial setup, if you do not enable SSH then you will not be able to access the ISE admin console via SSH. To enable SSH, enter the service sshd enable command in the global configuration mode, by accessing the Cisco ISE CLI. You can disable SSH by using the no service sshd command in the global configuration mode.
Enter the Cisco ISE URL in the address bar of your browser (for example, https://<ise hostname or ip address>/admin/).
Enter the username and case-sensitive password, that was specified and configured during the initial Cisco ISE setup.
Click Login or press Enter.
If your login is unsuccessful, click the Problem logging in? link in the Login page and follow the instructions.

The minimum required screen resolution to view the Admin portal and for a better user experience is 1280*800 pixels.
Administrator Lockout Following Failed Login Attempts
If you enter an incorrect password for your specified administrator user ID enough times, the Admin portal “locks you out” of the system, adds a log entry in the Server Administrator Logins report, and suspends the credentials for that administrator ID until you have an opportunity to reset the password that is associated with that administrator ID, as described in the “Performing Post-Installation Tasks” chapter of the Cisco Identity Services Engine Hardware Installation Guide. The number of failed attempts that is required to disable the administrator account is configurable according to the guidelines that are described in 'User Account Custom Attributes and Password Policies' section. After an administrator user account gets locked out, an e-mail is sent to the associated administrator user.
Disabled System administrators' status can be enabled by any Super Admin, including Active Directory users.
