SSH Tectia

Installing Manually on AIX

The Management Agent is available for AIX 4.3.3 and AIX 5L.

To install the agent manually on AIX, do the following:

  1. Copy the ssh-mgmt-agent installation package to the host to be managed by SSH Tectia Manager.

  2. Give the following commands as root:

    # uncompress ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<aixv>.bff.Z
    # installp -ac -X -d ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<aixv>.bff all 
    

    In the command, <v> is the current release version of the Management Agent (for example 6.0.12.123) and <aixv> is the version of the AIX operating system (aix-4.3-powerpc or aix-5.x-powerpc).

    The Management Agent installation will create the configuration directory /etc/opt/ssh-mgmt/agent and the Management Agent will start automatically after the installation has been finished.

  3. Download a valid ICB from the Management Server administration interface (see Downloading ICBs), and copy it to the default location on the target host (for example, by scp, sftp, or web browser):

    /var/opt/ssh-mgmt/agent/icb.dat
    

  4. Restart the Management Agent by issuing the following commands:

    # /etc/opt/ssh-mgmt/agent/ssh-mgmt-agent restart
