Question:
How do I configure DCE to log into an APC device when launched?

Issue: 
Launching to an APC device in StruxureWare DCE does not log me in. 

Product Line: 
  • InfraStruxure Central Central (ISXC)
  • StruxureWare Data Center Expert (DCE)

Environment: 
  • StruxureWare DCE version 7.x

2) Right-click on an APC device and select Device Launch settings.
3) Ensure that the correct protocol, port, username, and password are defined for accessing the devices web interface.  Select OK.
4) Double-click on the device, or right-click and select Launch to Device, and the web interface of the device should load and automatically log in.
