# Verify

Before you begin, you must verify the machine you are using.


Learn more about machine verifications here

  1. Visit https://intave.de/hardware (opens new window)
  2. Alongside verified hardware, you can see currently pending verification requests.
  3. Carefully review and accept verification requests.


If you do not recognize a verification request, contact us.

  1. Start your server once again.
  2. Done!


In case you are using Pterodactyl, Docker or Kubernetes, you need to mount the folder ~/.intave/ (in the home directory of the current user in the virtual machine) to a custom, shared folder. All virtual machines on the same root machine should have the same folder mounted. Virtual machines on different root machines must not share the same folder.
A guide (opens new window) is available for Pterodactyl users.
