Start the ALM Octane server

When you finish defining your configuration settings as described in Configure site settings, start ALM Octane.

  1. Log in as either the root or sudo user.

  2. Run the octane service to start the ALM Octane server. Run:

    systemctl start octane

The installation is complete only when the "Server is ready!" message is shown in the /opt/octane/log/wrapper.log file. If you do not see the "Server is ready!" message, correct the errors shown in the log.

Tip: When you first start using ALM Octane, you automatically receive a Trial license which gives you a 90-day trial for 100 users. For details, see Trial license.

Next steps:

  • Log in to ALM Octane
  • Cluster configuration: If you successfully installed and logged into ALM Octane on the first cluster node, continue installing on additional cluster nodes.
  • If connecting to a database server or an LDAP server over a secure channel (SSL/TLS), or for license sharing with ALM, configure trust. For details, see Configure trust on the ALM Octane server.
