Initialize the ALM Octane server

You are now ready to initialize the ALM Octane server by starting the ALM Octane service.

  1. Select Start > ALM Octane > Initialize ALM Octane Server.

    Alternatively, run initserver.bat:


The initialization keeps track of the last successful step that it performed; If for some reason you have to rerun initserver.bat, it only starts at the relevant point.

The ALM Octane service is now running. You can check Microsoft Windows Services to verify.

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

You are now ready to:

  • Single-node configuration: Log in and create additional users. For details, see Log in to ALM Octane.

    Check connectivity by logging in, after initializing the first node and before installing the remaining cluster nodes.

  • Cluster configuration: Optional.

    For details on installing on a cluster, see Cluster installation (optional).
