Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Verifying After Post-Installation Configuration

This section provides guidelines for verifying that the Communications Suite product components are working after you have finished post-installation configuration.

To start Communications Suite, you start the product components one after another, in a specific sequence. You start with the basic services provided by Directory Server and your web container (Web Server or an Application Server). Communications Suite creates runnable instances of these services during installation. Because Access Manager runs inside the web container, Access Manager starts when you start the web container.

The general sequence for bringing up the entire Communications Suite product component set is shown in the following table. The left column lists the order in which you should perform the startup, the middle column describes the task, and the right column lists the location of the instructions for performing the task.
