During DSA component installation, user accounts, initialization scripts, and environmental variables are created. You can verify proper installation by checking for these items.
  1. Verify that the ClientHandler service is running on all media servers:
    /etc/init.d/clienthandler status
  2. Verify installation:
    rpm -q DSC ClientHandler BARCmdline
    This command returns a list of installed packages.
  3. Verify that the DSCUSER was created with the proper uid.
    # id -u dscuser

    The response is positive and returns the uid configured during install time.

  4. Log off and log back in to the DSC to set the Linux environment variables.
  5. Run list_jobs to verify components.
    dsc list_jobs
    This command returns the following on a new installation:
    no job is found
  6. On the Viewpoint server, verify the BAR portlets:
    rpm -qa |grep barportlets
