DiskPulse Server Configuration

DiskPulse Server provides a variety of configuration options allowing one to easily integrate the product into a user-specific network environment. In order to open the main settings page, click on the 'Settings' link located on the top menu bar.

Configuring Custom User Name and Password

The DiskPulse Server web-based management console requires users to login with a DiskPulse user name and password. The default user name and password is set to admin/admin. In addition, DiskPulse Server provides the ability to set a custom user name and/or password for the DiskPulse web-based management interface and the command line utility, which may be used to automate configuration and management tasks.

In order to set a custom user name and password, click on the 'Configure Server Login' link located on the main settings page, enter a new user name and password and press the 'Save' button.

Configuring Custom Server Ports

DiskPulse Server uses the TCP/IP port 9120 as the default server control port and the TCP/IP port 80 as the default web access port. Sometimes, these ports may be in use by some other software products or system services. If one or both of these ports are in use, DiskPulse Server will be unable to operate properly and the user needs to change the DiskPulse server control port and/or web access port.

In order to set a custom server control port and/or web access port, click on the 'Setup Server Ports' link located on the main settings page and enter a custom server control port or web-access port to use. If the DiskPulse server should be controlled through the network, make sure the server control port and the web access port are open in the server's firewall.

Configuring E-Mail Server

In order to be able to send E-Mail notifications, open the main settings page and click on the 'Configure E-Mail Server' link. On the E-Mail server configuration page, enter the SMTP server host name, port, user name, password and the source E-Mail address to use to send E-Mail notifications. Optionally, enable the secure SMTP connection mode and select an appropriate security algorithm.

Configuring SQL Database

DiskPulse allows one to save disk change monitoring reports in an SQL database. In order to enable SQL database reports, open the main settings page and click on the 'Configure SQL Database' link. On the SQL database configuration page enter the ODBC data source, user name and password to use to save reports to the SQL database.
