Important: From Release 12.0, SMP requires a license to access a Metasys server using the SMP UI, except when accessing the ADX site director on an MVE site.

To launch the SMP UI, do one of the following:

  • From the Windows Start icon, go to Johnson Controls > Launcher. Follow the steps in Launcher Tool Help (LIT-12011742) to add a profile for the server under the SMP tab.

  • Double-click the relevant Metasys server icon on the desktop. Add a profile for the server under the SMP tab by configuring the network credentials of the server computer. For details, refer to Launcher Tool Help (LIT-12011742) .

  • On another computer on the same network as the server computer, browse to https://<hostname>/metasys/, where <hostname> is the computer name of the target server.
    Note: If the message Missing Resource File appears when you try to open the server, prompt the server to push its version of the Launcher by browsing to https://<hostname>/launcher.msi.

When you browse to the server computer from a client for the first time, the Windows Launcher Download screen appears. Click Full Launcher Installer to retrieve the user interface files (that is, a private version of the JRE) from the server computer, and then run the Launcher installation file. For details, refer to the Launcher Installation Instructions (LIT-12011783) .

Note: After you install the Launcher, use the Launcher, not the web browser, to access the server. If you use the web browser, the Launcher Download screen appears again. Do not reinstall the Launcher.

After you install the Launcher to your local hard drive, the Main Screen of the Launcher appears on which you can configure the network credentials of the server computer.

Using the Launcher, configure the network credentials of the server computer to add its profile to the Launcher. For details, refer to the Launcher Tool Help (LIT-12011742) .

After you add the server, select it from the profile list under the SMP tab and click Launch. The SMP UI login screen appears. Log in with the MetasysSysAgent user name and default password. (For the default password, contact your local Johnson Controls representative.) You are forced to change the password to a valid, complex password the first time you log in to the server. Follow the password rules that appear in the Change Password dialog. For more information on passwords, refer to the Security Administrator System Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201528) .

For information on configuring and using various Metasys servers, refer to the ADS/ADX Commissioning Guide (LIT-1201645) , Open Application Server (OAS) Commissioning Guide (LIT-12013243) and Metasys Site Management Portal Help (LIT-1201793) .
