Quick Verification

After completing the installation and setting up your shell environment, you can do a quick verify that the install was successful by running a program that reports on the installed version. This confirms that the installed program is accessible on your PATH and that it is the version you expect.

Use the vovversion program to confirm you are accessing the desired version of the product.

Running this command should give you the expected version number, and the expected location where you have installed the product.

It is also a good practice to check that your environment variables have been set up correctly:
> source /<install_path>/<version>/<platform>/common/etc/vovrc.csh
% vovversion -all
2016.09
VOVDIR=/opt/rtda/2016.09/linux
Patch: p1 (linux)
Patch: p2

You should see the expected version number, and the expected location where you have installed the product. You should also see the list of installed patches that matches the patches you've just applied.

You can also view the installation log file in $VOVDIR/.. that was created during the install process.
