Testing Environment Setups

To check the validity of the Environment:

  1. From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Environments > Environments.

  2. Open an environment.

  3. Click Check.

    The Check Environment window opens.

  4. Select the environment connections to check.

    Select a folder, such as Server, to check all connections defined for that category. Specific connections can also be tested by selecting the individual checkboxes by the connection item.

  5. Click Check.

    The system verifies the environment definition. Results from the environment check commands are displayed in the Log File section of the Check Environment window. Use log file output to troubleshoot any connection problems identified during the environment check.

    Environment definition testing includes actions performed during regular code migration, such as opening a Telnet session to the server, opening an FTP session to the server, and connecting to the database. While the environment checker cannot guarantee that all migrations will be successful, it can help catch some of the most common setup problems.

    While the check process can take a significant amount of time, it is recommended that any new environment is checked after all the data for it is provided. Additionally, it is good practice to periodically check all environments for obvious problems, such as changed passwords or disabled accounts.

  6. In the Check Environment window, click Cancel.

  7. In the Environment window, click Cancel.
