Viewing Server Manager status and version

For each grid node, you can view the current status and version of Server Manager running on that grid node. You can also obtain the current status of all services running on that grid node.

Before you begin

You must have the Passwords.txt file.

Steps

  1. From the service laptop, log in to the primary Admin Node:
    1. Enter the following command: ssh admin@primary_Admin_Node_IP
    2. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    3. Enter the following command to switch to root: su -
    4. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
      When you are logged in as root, the prompt changes from $ to #.
  2. View the current status of Server Manager running on a grid node: /etc/init.d/servermanager status
    The current status of Server Manager running on the grid node is reported (running or not). If Server Manager’s status is running, the time it has been running since last it was started is listed. For example,
    servermanager running for 1d, 13h, 0m, 30s
    This status is the equivalent of the status shown in the header of the local console display.
  3. View the current version of Server Manager running on a grid node: /etc/init.d/servermanager version
    The current version of Server Manager running on the grid node is reported. For example,
    10.3.0-20160125.2055.fe1efd1
    This information can be useful when updating the StorageGRID Webscale system.
  4. Log out of the command shell: exit
