If your Ark console resides on an Amazon host, the console configuration will determine the user registration process. An administrative user can enable or disable self-registration. If you are an administrative user and need information about enabling or disabling self-registration, please refer to the EDB Ark Administrative User's Guide. If you are a non-administrative user connecting to the Ark console on an Amazon host with self-registration enabled, see Section 3.1.To connect to an Ark console that does not support self-registration, use your web browser of choice to navigate to the IP address provided by your system administrator to access the Ark console. The Ark console will prompt you to Log in (as shown in Figure 3.1).Provide your credentials to connect to the Ark console. When connecting for the first time, the User tab will open as shown in Figure 3.2.Use the fields on the User tab to provide user information:
• Use the First Name field to specify the first name of the connecting user.
• Use the Last Name field to specify the last name of the connecting user.
• Use the Company Name field to specify the company name.
• The ID field displays the identifier of the connected user.
• Use the Notification Email field to specify the default email address that will be used for cluster notifications unless an alternate address is provided.You can optionally provide an alternate email address when a cluster is created (on the Create a new Server Cluster dialog), or modify a cluster’s notification email address on the Administrative Settings dialog.After providing user information, click Apply Changes to save the information before exiting the User tab. A popup will prompt you to enter your user password to confirm the changes to the Notification Email field (see Figure 3.3).Enter your password and select Confirm to continue to the Ark console.
