I cannot login to Server Administrator using Dell OpenManage

Active Directory is implemented, I can logon to the server both locally and through the domain.  When I start the Server Administrator Application it asks me to enter my user id and password I try the local administrator credientials, my domain credentials and it returns a login failure.  I have put the site in as a trusted site in Internet Explorer, I accept the certificate but it still denies me access.

Make sure your Administrator password is not blank.  If your server's name has an underscore in it, such as server_name, then type https://localhost:1311 instead.  Login, then go to Preferences -> General Settings -> Web Server and set it to bind to the IP address instead of Any.
That solved my problem
localhost fixed it

Thanks for the post. I have faced similar problem and fixed using https://localhost:1311 as I have got the name of the Server using Server_ (underscore)
