Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_Release_Criteria#cockpit-management-interface release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


This test case checks that Cockpit is enabled and accessible after a Fedora Server installation, as required in the Server/Technical_Specification.


  1. Install the Fedora Server release you wish to test, in graphical or text mode, making as few choices as possible and making the most simple and obvious choices where a choice is required.

How to test

  1. Boot the installed system, and check that Cockpit is running and accessible:
    sudo systemctl status cockpit.socket should show the service as enabled and running without errors
    sudo firewall-cmd --list-all should show the cockpit service
  2. Connect to the Cockpit web interface on the test system from another system with a web browser pointed to http://server:9090 ; the Cockpit management interface should show up. You can also use https://server:9090 , but unless you changed the server certificate from the default, it will be self-signed and the browser will show a warning or refuse to connect

Expected Results

  1. As far as you can reasonably test, Cockpit must be enabled and accessible on the test system after installation
