The Appliance Dashboard

4.3. The Appliance Dashboard#

We assume you have setup your Appliance accordingly to the quickstart guide which came with your installation image. So the Appliance should be up and running. This guide will introduce the appliance management Web UI dashboard which can be used for an easy and convenient configuration of all important aspects of the Appliance, including configuration revisioning, backup and restore abilities.

It can be reached at:


The appliance management Web UI is e.g. used to

  • monitor the status of the system

  • configure the network settings of the machine

  • set passwords of the root user and LinOTP administrators

  • perform backup and restore

  • manage your license

  • update the machine


Every time you define a new appliance configuration the configuration needs to be saved and activated. You can revert to a previous configuration set at any time. The appliance keeps track of your configuration sets. See Working with configuration sets for details.

Let’s take a brief look at the main tabs and thus at the main configuration topics. You will find more detailed explanation for each tab in the following chapters of the documentation.
