4.3 Verifying the Installation

You can perform any combination of the following tasks to verify that your installation was successful:

4.3.1 Verifying the Installation Logs

Check for the presence of installation log files in logs directory inside your Oracle Inventory directory. On UNIX systems, if you do not know the location of your Oracle Inventory directory, you can find it in the WebTier_ORACLE_HOME/oraInst.loc file. On Windows systems, the default location for the inventory directory is C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs.

4.3.2 Verifying the Domain Server Logs

Check the domain server logs, which are located in the servers directory inside the domain home directory. For example:

On UNIX

Web_Tier_ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/domains/domain_name/servers/server_name

On Windows

Web_Tier_ORACLE_HOME\user_projects\domains\domain_name\servers\server_name

4.3.3 Verifying the OPMN Status

Run the opmnctl status command from the INSTANCE_HOME/bin directory on UNIX, and INSTANCE_HOME\bin directory on Windows in your instance home location. For example:

> ./opmnctl status

Processes in Instance: instance2
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
ias-component                    | process-type       |     pid | status  
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
webcache1                        | WebCache-admin     |   24057 | Alive   
webcache1                        | WebCache           |   24056 | Alive   
ohs1                             | OHS                |   23890 | Alive   

This information shows the components configured for this installation. The status "Alive" means the component is up and running.

4.3.4 Checking the Browser URLs

Run the opmnctl status -l command from the INSTANCE_HOME/bin directory on UNIX, and INSTANCE_HOME\bin directory on Windows in your instance home location to obtain a list of ports used by the components. For example:

> ./opmnctl status -l

---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+----------+------------+----------+-----------+------
ias-component                    | process-type       |     pid | status   |        uid |  memused |    uptime | ports
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+----------+------------+----------+-----------+------
webcache1                        | WebCache-admin     |   24057 | Alive    | 1067146469 |    43712 |  14:43:29 | http_admin:7799
webcache1                        | WebCache           |   24056 | Alive    | 1067146468 |    64072 |  14:43:29 | http_stat:7800,http_invalidation:7801,https_listen:7802,http_listen:7798
ohs1                             | OHS                |   23890 | Alive    | 1067146467 |    50260 |  14:43:39 | https:9999,https:4447,http:7777

Use the port numbers in this display to point your browser to the appropriate pages. Use the format:

http://system_name:port_number

Based on the information above, you would use the URLs in Table 4-3 to access the various pages from this configuration:
