How to use OpenBaton

After completing the installation, you should be able to reach the dashboard of the NFVO at the following url: http://your-ip-here:8080

When accessing the dashboard, you will be prompted for a username and password. The first access can only be done with the super user ("admin") created during the installation process. Please refer to the Identity Management section for more information about security mechanisms.
