Thank you for your post.
Are you using Safari or Chrome? What version of Safari or Chrome are you using?
After you enter the credentials, do you get an error message?
Are you trying to login using localhost? the IP Address?
What is the exact address you are entering? For example: https://localhost:16000/admin-console
Any other information you can provide may be helpful.
Thanks of the reply TSGal.
Latest version of Safari, no error messages. Logging in using localhost. The alias enters the address exactly as your example. This worked for a long time. Since the installation of 13.02 and continuing with 13.03 the Console can't be accessed locally.
What exactly is occurring when you login? That is, you mention that you get the login page and "get the usual 'Do you want to save the password'...", but you don't mention what occurs after that. Do you get a blank white page? Do you get an error?
If the login page asks to save the password each time, then it isn't being saved in the keychain, as it shouldn't prompt you again, unless you answer "No" each time... Can you confirm?
What version of Java do you have installed on the server? You may want to reinstall Java.on the server.
Have you tried using Chrome to login? If so, do you get the same results?
Continue to keep me updated.

I have the latest version of Java. xx60 I believe. I always answer "not now" when asked if I want to save the password. What happens? The login window just sits there. Nothing happens. I recently updated Java. It should be noted that the situation was identical when using the last iteration of Java. I have yet to use Chrome to log in. This issue is almost purely academic to me. In my normal range of activity I would never log in to admin console via the server machine. In a way I don't care if I can or not. I simply find it a curious situation. But I do appreciate your help . . .
I was experiencing the exact same problem, but from a brand new MacBook Air. Could still log in to admin console by screen sharing, and via other local macs, where I have used the admin console before.
Once I made that change, it took a couple of minutes plus refreshing the browser window a couple of times, but it finally connected and allowed me to login like before. Once logged in, I verified my administration could still be performed. Logged back out, quit the browser and then opened it back up again. Speedy login just like before.
Now if I can figure out how to get the system to put an icon on the desktop, I will be happy.
I can log in from remote machines inside and outside my local network. To place an icon on your desktop simply drag the URL from the browser onto the desktop. Works on a Mac anyway.
Al,yes, I also use https.
Appreciate your quick responses. The "drag the URL to the desktop" trick worked perfectly!
