When you log in to HDvM - SN by using Adobe AIR from HARMAN for the first time, Captive Bundle Application (CBA) is downloaded from the SVP to the management client. CBA is the application that enables HDvM - SN to run with AIR. The downloaded file size is about 30 MB. If the CBA version on the SVP is updated later, the new CBA version will be downloaded automatically to the management client.

Use the following procedure to log in to HDvM - SN by using AIR for the first time.

Note: When you log in to HDvM - SN locally on the SVP, HDvM - SN starts by using AIR except when either of the following conditions is met. When either of these conditions is met, HDvM - SN starts in a web browser.
  • The SVP firmware version is 88-05-xx or earlier.
  • The OS running on the SVP is one of the following:
    • Windows Server 2012 (including R2)
    • Windows Server 2016 (Server with Desktop Experience)
    • Windows Server 2019 (Server with Desktop Experience)
  • Storage Device Launcher must be installed on the management client.
  • CBA must be installed on the SVP.
  • You must be logged in to the management client as the user who installed Storage Device Launcher.
  1. Open the HDvM - SN login dialog box.
    You can open the HDvM - SN login dialog box by running Storage Device Launcher on the management client or by opening a web browser and running Storage Device Launcher on the SVP.
    • To open the HDvM - SN login dialog box by running Storage Device Launcher:
      1. If you are logged in to the management client with administrator permissions, on the desktop or start menu, right-click the Storage Device Launcher batch file, and then run it by selecting Run as Administrator.

        If you are not logged in to the management client with administrator permissions, on the desktop run the shortcut for the Storage Device Launcher batch file.

        Note: If a security warning or a window blocking the operation is displayed, do not run Storage Device Launcher. Change the properties of the batch file (right-click SDLauncher.bat, click Properties, and then select Unblock in Security), and then run the file.
      2. Enter the IP address or host name of the SVP.
      3. Specify 443 for the HTTPS port number, and then click Connect.

        If a security warning message is displayed, verify that the security certificate is correct, and then follow the instructions in the dialog box.

    • To open the HDvM - SN login dialog box by opening a web browser and running Storage Device Launcher on the SVP:
      1. Start the web browser on the management client with administrator permissions.
      2. Enter the following URL in the web browser:
        sdlauncher://IP-address-or-host-name-of-SVP/

        If the HTTPS port number was changed from the default (443), also specify the new port number as follows:

        sdlauncher://IP-address-or-host-name-of-SVP:HTTPS-port-number/
        Note: If a security warning or a window blocking the operation is displayed, do not run the file. Change the properties of the batch file (right-click SDLauncher.bat, click Properties, and select Unblock in Security), and then run the file.
      3. If a security warning message is displayed, verify that the security certificate is correct, and then follow the instructions in the dialog box.
  2. Wait about 10 seconds for the CBA file to be downloaded to the management client.
    When the download is complete, the HDvM - SN login dialog box opens. You can close the web browser.
    Note: If you are using one management client to access multiple storage systems, CBA is downloaded for each storage system.
  3. Enter the user name and password, and then click Login.
    If the Security Information dialog box opens, click Yes.
    When the storage system configuration information is finished loading, the HDvM - SN main window opens.
