Configuring access to Web Interface
The Web Interface is only accessible to the intranet users who have Read permission on the virtual directory where the Web Interface is installed. By default, such a permission is granted to the members of the local Administrators group and/or the Users group on the Recovery Manager for Exchange computer. You can restrict access to the Web Interface by ensuring that only specific user accounts have Read permission granted for the virtual directory where the Web Interface is installed.
To configure access to the Web Interface
- On the computer where the Web Interface is installed, start Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
- In the IIS Manager console tree, expand the appropriate nodes to select the virtual directory where the Web Interface is installed.
In IIS 7.0 or later, the default Web Interface virtual directory is <RecoveryManagerComputer>/Sites/Default Web Site/RME
In IIS 6.0, the default Web Interface virtual directory is <RecoveryManagerComputer>/Web Sites/Default Web Site/RME
- Right-click the Web Interface virtual directory, then do one of the following:
- In IIS 7.0 or later, click Edit Permissions.
- In IIS 6.0, click Permissions.
- On the Security tab, make sure the users or groups you want to provide with access to the Web Interface are listed under Group or user names and have Read permission granted.
Configuring the Web browser
Before connecting to the Web Interface, check to make sure the Web browser you will be using to connect is configured properly.
To configure Internet Explorer
- In Control Panel, open Internet Options
- On the Security tab, click Local intranet, and then click the Custom level button.
- Under Settings, make sure that the Enable option is selected for the following:
- Downloads | File download
- Scripting | Active scripting
- Click OK to close the Security Settings dialog box.
Connecting to Web Interface
To start using the Web Interface, connect to it with your Web browser.
To connect to the Web Interface
- Start your Web browser, and then go to the following URL:
Substitute the Web site and virtual directory names specified during the Web Interface installation for the <WebSite> and <VirtualDirectory> placeholders.
For example, you might go to http://Comp/RME if the Web Interface site is installed to the default Web site on the computer named Comp in the virtual directory RME.
You may be prompted to download and install Microsoft Silverlight, as it is required to access the Web Interface.
