SAC at a Glance
Point your Browser to the URL of your Scalix server, following this syntax: http:///sac. A pop-up window with the Administration Console Login is opened. If you are using Firefox or another browser with pop-up suppression, perhaps the configuration will need some corrections. Allow the Scalix server to open popups. In Firefox, you can easily configure this by clicking in the yellow bar on top of the displayed page. Other browsers may require editing the preferences. Otherwise, Scalix will provide a web page for you with a link, which opens the Admin Console in the same browser window.
On Scalix 11, the Scalix Administration Login looks like this:
A First Look Around
- A menu with icons called Toolbar
- A list view on the lower left named Contents Pane and
- The main window on the right, called Display Pane
The icons in the menu bar let you choose the administration task you want to accomplish, the content pane lists the possible entries that can be edited, and the options and parameters of a selected entry are presented in the display pane.
Navigating in the Admin Console
A nice gadget in SAC is the little icon on the top left of the main window. Surrounded by four arrows, this icon displays the icon of the current section and enables the administrator to navigate in a quick and easy manner through the administration console.
Users, Groups, Resources…
Now click on the Users icon in order to switch to the user management dialog. Click on the entry of the only user present at this time, sxadmin.
There are other features in the Admin Console that you will be using frequently once you are master of some Scalix users. One of them is probably the button Change Password on the lower right corner leading directly to the password dialog. This button is present in every user’s configuration dialog.
