Connecting to an InterSystems IRIS Instance
The InterSystems IRIS Terminal is a command line you can use in any namespace of an InterSystems IRIS instance. Open the Terminal for a running instance using the command iris terminal instname
, where instname
is the name you gave the instance at installation. A containerized instance is typically named IRIS
Log in using one of the predefined user accounts
, with the password you provided during installation, or an account you created. The prompt that displays indicates the login namespace, for example:
# iris terminal IRIS
Node: intersystems2588, Instance: IRIS27
To exit the Terminal and close the window, enter the command halt
On a containerized instance, log in for the first time using one of the predefined accounts and the default password SYS; you are immediately prompted to change the password.
On a Windows system, you must execute the command from its location, the install-dir\bin
directory of an InterSystems IRIS instance, or include the full path in the command, for example c:\InterSystems\IRIS27\bin\iris terminal IRIS4
. You can execute the binary of a given instance to connect to that instance or another; the instance name is required either way.
