3.8 Verifying That the Installation Was Successful

One way to verify that your OES server installation was successful and that the components are loading properly is to watch the server reboot. As each component is loaded, the boot logger provides a status next to it indicating if the component is loading properly.

You can also quickly verify a successful installation by accessing the server from your Web browser.

  1. In the Address field of your Web browser, enter the following URL:


    Replace IP_or_DNS with the IP address or DNS name of your OES server.

    You should see a Web page similar to the following:

    IMPORTANT:If you see the statement It Works! instead of the OES Welcome Page, that means that the Web and LAMP Server option was selected and installed as a SLES component on the server. The default OES behavior can be restored by deleting the /srv/www/htdocs/index.html file from the server.

    You can also view the OES Welcome Page by using http://IP_or_DNS/welcome to access the server.

    You can also access iManager by typing the following URL in a browser window and logging in as user Admin:
