After installation, use your Web browser to browse to the server where Resource Manager is installed (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080).
If you are using Internet Explorer to view the Resource Manager interface, and you have restricted the browser to trusted sites, then a warning message may appear. To prevent this, add your Resource Manager installation to the Trusted zone. These Microsoft articles provide more information on setting up trusted sites:

The Step 2: Specify or Discover Devices to Monitor panel appears.
Figure 2.3. Setup Wizard: Step 2 (Manual Add)
You can add devices manually, or give Resource Manager network or IP address range information so it can discover your devices.
3.2.1. Adding Devices Manually
Follow these steps to manually add devices to the system. For each device you want to add:
Enter a fully qualified domain name or IP address
In the Details area, select a device type from the list. If your device type is not listed, then use the default selection. (You can change device classes for a device later, as well as add device classes.)
Enter the appropriate credentials used to authenticate against the device.
For more information about setting credentials, refer to Resource Manager Administration.
To add the devices, click Submit.
Resource Manager models the devices in the background.
You can bypass device addition through the wizard. Click Skip to the dashboard to go directly to the Resource Manager Dashboard. Later, you can add devices by following the steps outlined in Resource Manager Administration.
3.2.2. Discovering Devices
To discover devices:
Select the Autodiscover devices option.
Figure 2.4. Setup Wizard: Step 2 (Discovery)
For each network or IP range in which you want Resource Manager to discover devices, enter an address or range. For example, you might enter a network address in CIDR notation:
or as a range of IP addresses:
If you want to enter multiple addresses or ranges, click +. For each network, you must enter a netmask or IP range.
For each network or IP range, specify the Windows, SSH, or SNMP credentials you want Resource Manager to use on the devices it discovers. You can enter only one of each. Resource Manager attempts to use the same credentials on each device it discovers within the networks or IP ranges specified.
Resource Manager schedules jobs to discover devices in the networks and IP ranges you specified. (To see job status, navigate to Advanced > Settings, and then select Jobs in the left panel.)
When discovery completes, a notification message appears in the Messages portlet on the Dashboard.
You can bypass device discovery through the wizard. Click Skip to the dashboard to go directly to the Resource Manager Dashboard. Later, you can discover devices by following the steps outlined in Resource Manager Administration.
