The ivt command starts the installation verification test (IVT) program. The IVT verifies that the installation of the application server or deployment manager profile was successful. A profile consists of files that define the run-time environment for a deployment manager or an application server. Each profile has its own IVT command.
The IVT program starts the application server or deployment manager automatically if the server process is not already running. After the server process initializes, the IVT runs a series of verification tests and displays pass or fail status in a console window.
The IVT program scans the SystemOut.log file for errors and verifies core functionality of the profile.
You can start the IVT program from the command line or from the First steps console.
