Clear message


This guide should be followed after an installation of LDS. It's purpose is to verify that all aspects of the installation are working.

Items that need verification:

  • mailing: alerts, invitations
  • computer registration: tests https, message server, ping server, app server
  • access hash-id-database via web
  • run maintenance script one: tests that LDS can reach the AMI database on
  • run update-security-db once: tests that the USN database can be downloaded
  • run hash-id-databases once: it tests the necessary network connections. Note: it will take a while
  • run meta-releases once: it tests the network connection. Note: it also takes a while

TODO: write a single script that makes these tests.


  • send out an invitation for another administrator. There should be no significant waiting period (i.e., the admin should get the email quickly as it's not dependent on a cron job)
  • subscribe to the pending computer alert: register a new computer and see if you get the alert in the next 10min
  • subscribe to the offline computer alert: stop landscape-client on an existing computer and wait 10min
