You can start SnapManager and access it by using either the user interface (UI) or the command-line interface (CLI). After accessing SnapManager, you must create the SnapManager repository before performing any SnapManager operations.
Accessing the SnapManager user interface
You can access the SnapManager user interface (UI) remotely by using a web browser from any system running on an operating system supported by SnapManager. You can also access the SnapManager UI from the target database host by running the smogui command.
Configuring the SnapManager repository
You must configure the SnapManager repository in the repository database instance. The repository database stores metadata for databases managed by SnapManager.
