Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely.

Webmin has been preinstalled into the Opsview VMware Appliance from version 3.11.0 and is accessible on

http://<IP address>:10000/

Login details are in the Appliance Quickstart Guide PDF

For other Opsview servers there are installation details on the Webmin site.

Using Webmin

This document will not discuss all features of Webmin - that is best left to the Webmin documentation site.

Configuring the Network

After logging into the Webmin interface a menu will be presented on the screen. Select the following

Menu ⇒ Networking ⇒ Network Configuration ⇒ eth0

Changes to the network configuration can now be saved, but there must be access to the server console to ensure changes are applied cleanly.
