SSH Tectia

Installing Manually on AIX

The Management Agent is available for AIX on the POWER architecture.

To install the agent manually on AIX, follow these instructions:

  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 6.1.5.123) and <aixv> is the version of the AIX operating system (for example aix-5.3-6.1-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 (using, for example, 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
