MMCloud OpCenter


Change Admin Password

We recommend changing the default username (admin) and password (memverge) for the opcenter after logging in for the first time.

  • Click on Users & Groups from the left navigation menu and for the admin user click on Actions and change the password as necessary.

Activate MMCloud License

  • Log into your MMCloud OpCenter and activate license by clicking on the star icon in the top-right corner and enter your credentials

Download FLOAT CLI

  • The float CLI binary helps connect a user from any local machine to the MMCloud opcenter. To download the CLI, click on the terminal icon towards the top right corner of the opcenter and choose the version of CLI tool based on the operating system
  • From macOS 10.15 (Catalina) onwards, zsh is the default shell. In zsh, float is a reserved word. To use the float CLI with macOS, either change the shell to bash or alias the word float to the float binary, as follows:
alias float = /path/to/float_binary/float

where /path/to/float_binary/ is the path to where you placed the float binary.

  • To change the default shell from zsh to bash see the following guide:
