Unpacking the Archive

The program material is installed in four steps:

  1. If online packages are used, unpack the online archive file.
  2. Copy the archive file from the online package or the CD into a temporary location in the USS file hierarchy.
  3. Unpack the archive into a temporary location.
  4. Run the setup script, which copies the programs into their final location, usr/lpp/ssh2.

The contents of the archive are binary programs and EBCDIC text files. Use binary mode to copy it and unpack it without code conversion.

Unpack the online archive file ssh-tectia-server-m-5.2.2-ibmzos.tar to a suitable temporary directory, for example /tmp, with the commands

> cd /tmp
> tar xvf ssh-tectia-server-m-5.2.2-ibmzos.tar

Copy the ssh-5.2.2-ibmzos_1_5.tar.Z archive to a suitable temporary directory, for example /tmp, on the mainframe. Unpack it into a temporary location, for example /tmp, in the USS file system with the commands

> cd /tmp
> tar xvzf ssh-5.2.2-ibmzos_1_5.tar.Z

This will create the directory /tmp/ssh2-5.2.2.<build>, where <build> is the current build number of the package.

If you run the script in the TSO OMVS shell, you may need to press the PF10 key from time to time to keep the shell in the RUNNING state.
