2. Run the following command to see which installation you are connected to:

# dainfo

In the below example, you can see we are connected to DefaultInstallation

# /etc/init.d/centrifyda stop
# /etc/init.d/centrifyda start

5. Now run this command to show the new installation you are connected to:

# dainfo
