SSH Tectia

Installing on AIX

On the CD-ROM, the installation packages for AIX 5L platforms are located in the /install/aix/ directory. Two packages are required: one for the common components of SSH Tectia Client and Server, and another for the specific components of SSH Tectia Server.

[Note]Note

You need GNU gzip in order to install SSH Tectia Server on AIX.

To install SSH Tectia Server on AIX, follow the instructions below:

  1. (Not necessary in "third-digit" maintenance updates.) Copy the license file to the /etc/ssh2/licenses directory. See Licensing.

    If this is the initial installation of SSH Tectia Server 5.x, the directory does not yet exist. You can either create it manually or copy the license after the installation. In the latter case, you have to start the server manually after copying the license file.

  2. Unpack the packages using the following commands:

    $ gzip -d ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-aix5.x.bff.Z
    $ gzip -d ssh-tectia-server-<ver>-aix5.x.bff.Z
    

    In the commands, <ver> is the current package version of SSH Tectia Server (for example, 5.2.0.120).

  3. Install the packages by running the following commands with root privileges:

    # installp -d ssh-tectia-common-<ver>-aix5.x.bff SSHTectia.Common
    # installp -d ssh-tectia-server-<ver>-aix5.x.bff SSHTectia.Server
    

    The server host key is generated during the installation. Key generation may take several minutes on slow machines.

  4. The installation should (re)start the server automatically.

    If the server does not start (because of a missing license, for example), you can start it after correcting the problem by issuing the command:

    # /opt/tectia/sbin/rc.ssh-server-g3 start
