Access User Interface And Install License

Creating The First IP Fabric User

To create the first user, please log in to the System Administration interface on port 8443.

After logging in as the osadmin user, go to the Create admin menu and set up a new local administrator account.


On a clean IP Fabric installation, there is no user for the main GUI present by default. It is mandatory to create a new local administrator account.

Creating new admin user

With this new account, you will be able to log in to the main IP Fabric user interface.

In Settings → Administration → Local Users of the main interface, you can change the password of the new account.

In Settings → Administration → Local Users, you can also create or delete local users and change their passwords.

Creating a new user account

Accessing The Main User Interface

Type the IP Fabric VM’s address into a web browser and allow HTTPS exceptions in case of a warning.

Trusted certificate

You can replace a self-signed SSL certificate with a trusted one in the web UI.

The system requires a license file that uniquely identifies the system and links it to the dedicated support channels. Keep the license file safe, as the license file is also used as part of the key to encrypt sensitive information. Drag the license.key file into the web interface, or click Select file and browse to the license.key file. If the license installation fails, contact the IP Fabric support team.

IPF License 1 IPF License 2

Once the license is validated, the system will present a login screen.
