    • Instances in both classic and VPC networks support DMS access. When you use DMS to log on to an instance in a VPC network, the system requests a special channel. Therefore, you need to wait a moment before logging on to this instance for the first time.
    • Whenever you log on to the DMS console, ApsaraDB for Redis runs the SCAN command to scan data and delete some expired data in ApsaraDB for Redis.
  6. Click Login.
  7. In the Unable to log into the database due to whitelist issues dialog box, click Configure Whitelist.
    Danger The system creates a group named ali_dms_group in the Whitelist of the ApsaraDB for Redis instance and adds the IP address of the DMS client to the group. Do not manually add other IP addresses to this group. Otherwise, IP address loss may occur due to DMS changes.
