SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS will always be installed to path
You need to create the
/opt/tectia directory and mount the selected file system to it. If you do neither of the above, the product installation will be tried into the file system where
You can have SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS installed into an existing HFS or zFS file system (see Option 2 below) or you can create a separate file system for it (see Option 1 below).
When you want to create a new HFS or zFS file system for the installation, start by making an empty
tectia directory under
> cd /opt
> mkdir tectia
Ensure that the
/opt/tectia directory is writable and that it is owned by the
> chmod 755 /opt/tectia
> chown SSHD2:0 /opt/tectia
Next, create the file system. You can use the
CREAHFS example from
SAMPLIB (shown below). The sample file is for HFS, but zFS can also be used.
//CREAHFS EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//* Allocate a dataset for a USS file system. The space allocated, 250
//* cylinders, corresponds to about 200 MB on a 3390 device.
//HFS DD DSN=SSZ.SRVR6110.HFS,
To mount the file system on
/opt/tectia use the
MOUNHFS example from
SAMPLIB as shown below.
//* 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.SRVR6110.HFS') +
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.
If you want to install the product into an existing file system, for example the one where
/usr/local is mounted, make an empty directory in that file system and create a link to it under
> mkdir /usr/local/tectia_6_0_0
> ln -s /usr/local/tectia_6_0_0 /opt/tectia
