2.3. Verifying that Red Hat Gluster Storage Instance is Running

You can verify that Red Hat Gluster Storage instance is running by performing a remote login to the Red Hat Gluster Storage instance and issuing a command.
To verify that Red Hat Gluster Storage instance is running
  1. Navigate to the Amazon Web Services home page at http://aws.amazon.com. The Amazon Web Services home page appears.
  2. Log in to Amazon Web Services. The AWS Management Console screen is displayed.
  3. Click the EC2 option. The EC2 Management Console is displayed.
  4. Click the Instances link from the Instances section on the left. The screen displays your current instances.
  5. Check the Instance Status column and verify that the instance is running. A yellow circle indicates a status as pending, while a green circle indicates that the instance is running.
    Select the instance and verify the details displayed in the Description tab.
  6. Note the domain name in the Public DNS field. You can use this domain to perform a remote login to the instance.
  7. Log in to the Red Hat Amazon Machine Image instance using the domain from the previous step in the following command:
    # ssh -i Kay_Pair_File Public_DNS
    # sudo su

    Note

    You must use the key pair that was selected or created when launching the instance.
    For example, the key pair file name is rhs-aws.pem, and the Public DNS is ec2-user@ec2-23-20-52-123.compute-1.amazonaws.com:
    # ssh -i rhs-aws.pem ec2-user@ec2-23-20-52-123.compute-1.amazonaws.com
    # sudo su
  8. Verify that the glusterd daemon is running on the instance using the following command:
    # service glusterd status

    Note

    Samba and NFS-Ganesha channels are disabled by default. To use standalone Samba and NFS-Ganesha, refer the following:
