Start the ALM Octane server

Now that the initial setup is complete, you can run the ALM Octane server.

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

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

    service octane start

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 the information about Trial licenses in the ALM Octane User Guide.
