    If the HDvM - SN loading window is displayed, wait until the service status changes to Ready (Normal). At that time, the login window is displayed automatically. The following is an example of the loading window.

  3. The following actions might be required to open the login window, depending on your environment:
    • If a message indicates that the enhanced security configuration is enabled on the management client, select In the future, do not show this message and then click OK.
    • If the SVP is set to support SSL-encrypted communication and security messages appear, make sure the certificate is correct and follow the instructions in the dialog box.
    • If a message indicates that certain web sites are blocked, you need to add the SVP to the trusted sites zone (see Adding your SVP to the trusted sites zone for Windows Server computers).
    • If multiple storage systems are connected, a window that allows selection of the storage system is displayed. Select the storage system you want to connect.
  4. When the Storage Device List window opens*, select the storage system.
    * When there is only one SVP in the Storage Device List whose service status is Ready, the Storage Device List window does not appear.
    The HDvM - SN login window appears.
    Note: If the window displaying "Please wait ... Storage Navigator is loading" remains open and you cannot log in, the IP address of the SVP might have changed. To update the IP address in the Storage Device List, click SVP IP Address (upper right corner of Storage Device List window), click Change SVP IP Address, and enter the IP address. Then click Start Service.
  5. Type the user ID and password, and then click Login.
  6. If the Security Information dialog box appears, click Yes.
After you log in, the HDvM - SN main window opens. You can navigate using the menu, tree, or General Tasks. For instructions on performing operations on the storage system using Device Manager - Storage Navigator, see the applicable user guide (for example, Hitachi Universal Replicator User Guide).
