Creating the /usr/lpp/ssh2 Directory

SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS is always installed to /usr/lpp/ssh2. You have several options of how to create the ssh2 directory.

Option 1

To put the product in a separate HFS or zFS file system, make an empty ssh2 directory under /usr/lpp:

> cd /usr/lpp
> mkdir ssh2

Create the file system and mount it on /usr/lpp/ssh2. You can use the CREAHFS and MOUNHFS examples from SAMPLIB (shown below). The sample files are for HFS but zFS can also be used. Note that mounting the file system causes an operator query that must be responded to. You may want to copy the mount command into the BPXPRMxx member in PARMLIB so that the file system is mounted each time you IPL the system.

CREAHFS:

//CREAHFS EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//*
//* Allocate a dataset for a USS file system. The space allocated, 200
//* cylinders, corresponds to about 160 MB on a 3390 device.
//*
//HFS      DD  DSN=SSZ.SRVR542.HFS,
//             UNIT=SYSALLDA,
//             SPACE=(CYL,(200,1,5)),
//             DSNTYPE=HFS,
//             DCB=(DSORG=PO),
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE)

MOUNHFS:

//* REPLY nn,dddd ON THE MACHINE CONSOLE TO ALLOW MOUNT
//*
//MOUNT    EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1A,DYNAMNBR=75,TIME=100,REGION=6M
//*
//* Mount the file system on an existing, empty directory
//*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTERM  DD DUMMY
//SYSTSIN  DD *
  MOUNT FILESYSTEM('SSZ.SRVR542.HFS') +
    MOUNTPOINT('/usr/lpp/ssh2') +
    TYPE(HFS) +
    MODE(RDWR)
/*

Option 2

If you want to install the product into an existing file system, for example the one where /opt is mounted, make an empty directory in that file system and create a link to it under /usr/lpp:

> mkdir /opt/ssh_5_4
> cd /usr/lpp
> ln -s /opt/ssh_5_4 ssh2

Option 3

If you do neither of the above, the product will go into the file system where /usr/lpp is. In all cases the path to the product will be /usr/lpp/ssh2.

Setting Permissions to /usr/lpp/ssh2

Ensure that the /usr/lpp/ssh2 directory is writable and that it is owned by the SSHD2 user:

> chmod 755 /usr/lpp/ssh2
> chown SSHD2:0 /usr/lpp/ssh2
