The Hansoft Server Administrator is used to remotely administrate the project server. The program is included with the server installation and is optionally installed with the client.
Use the following command from the command line:
open -a Hansoft --args -AdminServer
Make sure that you are standing in the installation directory when executing this command.
The program will ask you to fill in the address of the server you want to connect to. This address is either the IP address of the server or a hostname.
The password that you are asked to supply is the server administrator password that you set during installation of the server. If you skipped the initial setup guide the default password is "hpmadm". You should change the default password as quickly as possible if you didn't supply a password during setup.
