Log in to EFA

Use of the EFA command line requires a valid, logged-in user.


  1. Verify the status of the EFA deployment using one of the following methods.
    • Run the SLX show efa status command.
    • Run the EFA efactl status script (or the efa status command, as an alternative).
  2. Log in to EFA.
    $ efa login --username <username>
    Password: <password>
    The <username> variable is optional. If you do not provide a user name, log-in defaults to the current (Unix) user.
    With a successful log-in, the command prompt shows the logged-in user in green text. If the log-in is not successful, the command prompt is displayed in red text.
  3. To log out of EFA, run the efa logout command.
