Displaying the Web Interface - AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3

This is version 3.18 of the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 Documentation.

Displaying the Web Interface

To display the web interface, use the IP address of the Conductor. The correct address depends on your high-availability redundancy setup:

  • If the cluster is set up with Conductor high-availability redundancy, the address is the address of the VIP. This VIP is set up when you configured for high-availability redundancy, as described in the AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 Configuration Guide.

  • If your AWS Elemental Conductor Live 3 cluster is not set up with Conductor redundancy, use the IP address of the Conductor to set it up.

Warning

In a high-availability deployment, you must always access the web interface from the VIP. You may be able to access it from the primary Conductor, but, when a fail over occurs, problems occur. You cannot access it from the backup Conductor: that IP address always redirects it to the VIP.

User Authentication

If user authentication is enabled on the cluster, then when you display the web interface, the Login screen appears. Obtain your user credentials from the person who initially set up the cluster.

Conductor Information

In the menu bar, choose the Globe icon. A drop-down menu appears.

  • If redundancy is enabled on the cluster, the information appears as:

    • The hostname beside the Globe icon shows the hostname of the Conductor that is currently the primary Conductor. Whenever there is a Conductor node failure and fail over occurs, this hostname changes to the address of the other Conductor node.

    • The VIP field shows the IP address of the VIP. This address does not match either the primary or the backup Conductor node.

  • If redundancy is not enabled, the information appears as:

    The hostname beside the Globe icon shows the hostname of the Conductor.

    The IP field shows the IP address of the Conductor node.

For more information on Conductor redundancy, see Redundancy and Failover and Failed Conductor Nodes with Conductor Redundancy.

Worker Redundancy

Before you start work, you should determine if the cluster is set up for worker redundancy. Ask the person who configured the cluster or go to the Cluster > Redundancy screen. For details, see Cluster > Nodes Screen.
