Use the fields on the Postgres Enterprise Manager Login window to authenticate yourself with the PEM server:
Provide the name of a pem database user in the Username field. For the first user connecting, this will be the name provided when installing the PEM server.
Click the Login button to connect to the PEM server.

Before you can use the PEM web interface to manage or monitor a database server, you must register the server with the PEM server. When you register a server, you describe the connection to the server, provide authentication information for the connection, and specify any management preferences (optionally binding an agent).
A managed server is bound to a PEM agent. The PEM agent will monitor the server to which it is bound, and perform tasks or report statistics for display on the PEM dashboards. A managed server has access to extended PEM functionality such as Package Management or Custom Alerting; when registering a server, you can also allow a managed server to be restarted by PEM as required.
An unmanaged server is not bound to a PEM agent; you can create database objects on an unmanaged server, but extended PEM functionality (such as Package Management or Custom Alerting) is not supported on an unmanaged server.
You must also ensure the pg_hba.conf file of the server that you are registering allows connections from the host of the PEM web interface.
To access online help information about the PEM web interface, select Help from the menu bar (see Figure 4.2). Additional information is available in .pdf and .html format from the EnterpriseDB website at:
The PEM Getting Started Guide contains information about registering and managing servers, agents, and users.
The PEM Enterprise Features Guide contains information about using the tools and wizards that are part of the web interface.
The PEM Upgrade and Migration Guide contains information about upgrading to PEM 7.3 from a previous version.
