FortiClient EMS runs as a service on Windows computers.
To start FortiClient EMS and log in:
- Double-click the FortiClient Endpoint Management Server icon.
- By default, the admin user account has no password. Sign in with the username admin and no password.
- EMS now directs you to add a password for increased security. Change the password following the rules shown. Click Save.
- Configure FortiClient EMS by going to System Settings.
If you do not add the admin password upon initial login, EMS directs you to add a password each time the admin user account logs in.
