With the Alveo U50 accelerator card installed in a server, you can deploy applications to be run on the host server and accelerator card. Follow the instructions in Chaptor 5 - Card Bring-Up and Validation of the Alveo U50 Data Center Accelerator Card Installation Guide (UG1370) to validate your installed Alveo U50 card.

The xbutil validate command validates the correct installation by performing a various set of tests on the given Alveo card, and you need to set up the environment for XRT to perform the validation.

source /opt/xilinx/xrt/
#validate Alveo card
xbutil validate

If your Alveo U50 has been correctly installed, you will see a high-level summary of the tests performed similar to the following output after performing xbutil validate.
