Start the X Administrative Console

You can start the Administrative Console from your desktop user interface or from the command line.

To start the X Administrative Console from your computer desktop

  1. Start the Administrative Console:

    On Do This
    Windows From the Start menu, point to (All) Programs > Micro Focus Reflection > X Administrative Console.
    Linux From the Applications menu, point to Micro Focus Reflection > X Administrative Console. (On some platforms, you may need to log out after your initial install, then log in again to see this menu item.)
  2. Log on to the Reflection X domain:

    • For Username and password, enter your credentials to log onto the Reflection X domain. If your domain is configured to use the default authentication option (Windows authentication on Windows systems and PAM authentication on non-Windows systems), you can log on using the same credentials you use to log on to your computer.

    • For Domain, enter the Reflection X domain name. (The Reflection X domain name is always the same as the name of the computer running the domain controller.)

To start the Administrative Console from the command line

  1. From a command prompt, navigate to your Reflection X installation folder:

    On Windows:

    cd C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Reflection

    On Linux:

    cd /opt/microfocus/ReflectionX

  2. Enter rxadmin(or ./rxadmin for Linux).

    When the Administrative Console opens, you are prompted to log on to a domain.
