Starting the Web-Based SAP Management Console
  1. Make sure that you have fulfilled the following requirements:

    • You have Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.2 or higher installed.

    • Your Web browser supports Java.

    • Your Web browser's Java plug-in is installed and activated.

  2. In your Web browser, call the following URL:



    • <host> is the host where the application server is installed.

    • <port> is the sapstartsrv service port. The port number is 5<instance_number>13. For example, if the instance number is 60, the port is 56013.

    This starts the SAP MC Java applet.

    If your browser displays a security warning message, choose the option that indicates that you trust the applet.

    Note Note

    If you want to connect over HTTPS, you have to use the sapstartsrv HTTPS port. The port number is 5<instance_number>14. Before connecting over HTTPS, you first have to set up SSL correctly for the monitored SAP instances.

    More information: Configuring the Use of SSL on the AS Java and SAP Note 1036107.

    End of the note.
  3. SAP MC starts automatically.

    By default, the instances installed on the host to which you have connected are already added in the SAP Management Console. If you want to change the configuration to display systems and instances on other hosts, follow the instructions given in Registering Systems and Instances.
