Use one of the following methods to start MATE Design from the directory in which the MATE software is installed.
Double-click the mate executable. To verify the version number, select the Help->About menu. This should match the version selected when you installed the product from cisco.com.
From the CLI, enter the mate command and press Enter (Return).
Optional: On Windows, you can associate the plan file using the.pln format with the
mate executable. Double-clicking a.pln file opens the plan in a new instance of the GUI.
Note If you only have MATE Design, the rest of this chapter is not applicable to you.
Other than the MATE Live datastore, Linux processes are started through services. To determine if a service is running, check its status.
service <service_name> status
For MATE Live, use this command.
mld -action status
This assumes you have
mld installed and if needed, upgraded. For more information, see the MATE Live Configuration Guide.
Step 1 To start the MATE Live, the web server must be stopped if it is running.
service wae-web-server stop
Step 2 If the datastore is not running, start the mld server.
mld -action start
Step 3 Start the web server and log into the web UI. See the Collector Server and Web Applications section.
Collector Server and Web Applications
Step 1 If the web server is not running, start it. This must be running to access the Collector server or the web applications.
service wae-web-server start
Step 2 Open the web home page in a browser.
Step 3 Log in to the web server. Contact your administrator for your personal credentials.
