Installing Manually on AIX

The Management Agent is available for AIX on the POWER architecture. For information on the supported platforms, see Table 5.1.

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 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 6.2.1.123) 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
