SSH Tectia

Installing Manually on Solaris

The Management Agent is available for Sun Solaris on the SPARC and x86-64 architectures.

To install the agent manually on Solaris, 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:

    # cp /cdrom/install/solaris/ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg.Z .
    # uncompress ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg.Z
    # pkgadd -d ssh-mgmt-agent-<v>-<arch>.pkg all
    

    In the command, <v> is the current release version of the Management Agent (for example 6.0.12.123) and <arch> is the architecture and version of the Solaris operating system (solaris-2.6-10-sparc or solaris-10-x86_64).

    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 command:

    # /etc/init.d/ssh-mgmt-agent restart
