SSH Tectia

Installing on AIX

SSH Tectia Server is available for IBM AIX 5L versions 5.2 and 5.3 (with patch level 3) on the POWER architecture.

The downloaded online installation package contains the compressed installation files. On the CD-ROM, the installation packages are located in directory /install/aix/.

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. Unpack the installation packages:

    $ 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, 5.3.8.123).

  2. 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. The key generation may take several minutes on slow machines.

  3. (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, 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.

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

    [Note]Note

    If the server does not start (for example because of a missing license or because some other secure shell software is running on port 22), you can start it after correcting the problem by issuing the command:

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