Step 5. Verifying the Installation
To verify that you have successfully installed, use
the configuration that is created by the installation. You can verify
the product installation by bringing up, checking, connecting to,
testing, disconnecting from, and shutting down. (If you started
the server as the last step of the installation procedure, skip
ahead to Step 5.)
Procedure: How to Verify Server Installation
Log on to your OpenVMS operating system
with the iadmin user ID.
Activate the account privileges (if they are not yet
activated) by issuing the following command.
SET PROCESS /PRIV=ALL
is typically done by using AUTHORIZE to set privileges to be active
by default, or by putting the SET PROCESS command in the ID login
Start the server with the appropriate path to edastart
and the -start option
Check to see whether the processes are active using -show
Start the Web Console by starting a browser pointed at
the server HTTP Listener port specified during installation. The
URL format is http://host:port. (The URL is also displayed
at the end of the installation procedure.)
For example, if default ports were used during installation,
use http://host:8101 for a Full-Function Server and http://host:8121
for a WebFOCUS Server.
If the server is running in a secure mode, you will first
see a logon screen. Log on using the iadmin ID used during server
configuration. For information about configuring the server security,
see Step 6. Security Providers
The Web Console home page opens. The Home Page is arranged
in a menu-like context for the various features it supports. Detailed
use of the Web Console for configuration or general operation of
the server is available by clicking Help in
the left navigation menu and in the Server Administration manual.
If the Web Console
opens and displays application tree folders in the left pane, the
server is working because it uses its own underlying data access
and reporting technologies to visualize the application tree. The server
may be further data tested (if desired).
When you are done using the server, you can stop it using
the Web Console by clicking the Stop option
on the Web Console toolbar.
If you experience any problems, examine the IWAY:[IADMIN.IBI.SRV77.FFS]EDAPRINT.LOG file.
