Verifying deployment of the Analytics subsystem

Verify that deployment of the Analytics OVA file succeeded.

Before you begin

You must have completed Deploying the Analytics subsystem OVA file.

About this task

After you configure an ISO and deploy it with the Analytics subsystem OVA, as described in Deploying the Analytics subsystem OVA file, verify that the subsystem installed correctly and is functional.


  1. Log in to the virtual machine by using an SSH tool to check the status of the installation:
    1. Enter the following command to connect to analyt using SSH:
      ssh ip_address -l apicadm
      You are logging in with the default ID of apicadm, which is the API Connect ID that has administrator privileges.
    2. Select Yes to continue connecting.
      Your host names are automatically added to your list of hosts.
    3. Run the apic status command to verify that the installation completed and the system is running correctly.
      The command output for a correctly running Analytics system is similar to the following lines:
      #sudo apic status
      INFO[0000] Log level: info
