Anaconda Enterprise pre-flight check

Follow the instructions below to install and run the pre-flight script. Run it on each node in the system on which you plan to install Anaconda Enterprise, to verify that it meets the minimum requirements to install successfully.

To install the package from Git, run the following commands from a terminal on the node you’re checking:

git clone
cd ae-preflight
python install

To install the package in an existing conda environment, run the following command from a terminal on the node you’re checking:

conda install -c ae5-admin ae_preflight

To run the profiler, run the following command:


Optionally append the command with any of these options, based on your preferences:

-i, --interface     Interface name (e.g., eth0 or ens3) to check for open ports
-v, --verbose       Increase verbosity of the script
--hostname          Check hostname to ensure that DNS can be resolved for TLD and wildcard DNS

System-specific instructions are also provided below.

The output of running the script is captured in a results.txt file.

To view the results, locate the results.txt file that was created in the directory that you ran the script from.

This file will contain warnings and notify you of any pre-flight checks that may have failed. It will also describe the reason why a test failed, and provide a solution for fixing the issue.
