Ping a satellite

To check the connection between XL Deploy and a satellite, you can ping the satellite. This will test the entire network and application stack and check your parameters.

To ping a satellite server:

  1. In the left pane, expand Infrastructure
  2. Select the satellite, click Explorer action menu, and click Ping or right-click the satellite and click Ping. Note: You can also double-click the satellite to view the summary page and click Ping.

If the connection check succeeds, XL Deploy will return five ping values and the uptime of the satellite. The first ping value can be higher than the others if this is the first time XL Deploy is trying to connect to the satellite.

If the connection check fails, see Troubleshooting XL Deploy satellites.
