How to Open the VMM Self-Service Portal

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

noteNote
As of System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) Self-Service Portal has been removed.

You can use either of the following procedures to open the VMM Self-Service Portal. To use the VMM Self-Service Portal, client computers must be running Internet Explorer 8.

Before users can access the VMM Self-Service Portal, you must create at least one Self-Service User user role and add the appropriate user accounts or Active Directory groups as members of the user role. For more information about creating Self-Service User user roles, see How to Create a Self-Service User Role in VMM.

noteNote
In System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager, self-service users can also use the VMM console to perform the same tasks that they can perform in the Self-Service Portal. In addition, there are some tasks that self-service users can perform only by using the VMM console.

In the VMM console, self-service users only see the objects and tasks that are within the scope of their user role. For more information about using the VMM console, see Installing and Opening the VMM Console.

To open the VMM Self-Service Portal on the Web server

  1. On a computer on which the VMM Self-Service Portal is installed, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft System Center 2012, click Virtual Machine Manager, and then click Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal.

  2. On the logon page, provide the appropriate credentials, and then click Log On.

To open the VMM Self-Service Portal in a Web browser

  1. In a Web browser, specify the Self-Service Portal web site in one of the following formats:

    • If the Self-Service Portal web site is using a dedicated port, type http:// followed by the computer name of the web server, a colon (:), and then the port number. For example, type http://webserver:80.

    • If the Self-Service Portal web site is not using a dedicated port, then type http:// followed by the host header name.

    • If SSL has been enabled, then you must type https:// for the start of the web site address.

  2. On the logon page, provide the appropriate credentials, and then click Log On.
