Dashboard view without login

Veeam Logoby ToniVR » Tue Oct 28, 2014 1:53 pm

Hi,

We are setting up Samsung Smart TV's for our system engineering department to create a kind of NOC view.
Aside the monitoring system we would also like to show some Veeam One Reporter Dashboards on those TV's.

As we use the built in browser of the TV, the domain based credentials are not usable to authenticate against the Veeam One server, so the TV's stay on the 401 Unauthorized error.

Is there any way to provide read only access to the dashboards without a login?

Thanks.

Could you clarify the problem to enter credentials? Is it security issue or the TV doesn`t support authorization processes?

Actually there is no option to enter Veeam One without log in. Read-only access is possible, but with log in as well.
Is it possible to get a remote access (RDP) from the TV to any server with Veeam One installed?

Thanks.

Also wanted to add that in version 8 we have switched to form authentication (previous it was Windows-based), so you should be able to specify credentials even from the browser of the TV.

We don't get any credential popup on the TV, so hence the instant 401 error.
Good to hear that v8 will support form based auth, so I'll wait for this version to appear!

Thanks for your input.

Hi Toni,

Just wanted to follow up on this request - v8 is now available for download, so you can try again your monitoring scenario via TV.

Thanks!

Hi,

Today we upgraded our setup to Veeam 8.
Sadly the dashboard logon prompt does not show up on the TV, it is just a blank screen.
I guess the TV doesn't support the full Javascript stack.

We'll start looking for a HDMI Android stick. Should help us out.

Thanks!

Hi Toni,

Sorry to hear that, but do you have any example of where this forms authentication does pop up on your TV?

Thanks!

Hi Vitaliy,

The TV just shows a blank screen.
I cannot see any source, nor do I get any error.

PS: we use NagVis successfully on our TV's, so Javascript does work.

Regards,
Toni

Is there any option to add Veeam ONE URL to trusted sites/sources on the TV?

It is an embedded browser, so it doesn't support this kind of security.
No idea why it isn't working. All our other sites work without a problem (even other form based authentication).

Is there any way we could take a look at the logs where the authentication request is generated? You can do that via sending full logs package to our support team and referencing this thread for your convenience.

Hi Tony, our dev team has tried to do the same with this TV - UE22F5400AK and it worked fine. Do you have any other TV to try to access the login page?

Perfect, thanks for update! Would be cool if you could post a picture of how it looks like in our NOC center.
