From SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS Version 5.x
The product structure and the installation directory of SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS has changed in version 6.0. If you have an earlier version of SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS installed, it can coexist with version 6.0, as can the 5.x version.
The upgrade procedure will migrate your 5.x configuration and the keys automatically to the 6.x version.

setup.sh for upgrading from version 5.x you must choose if you want to keep the old 5.x installation intact or if you want to uninstall all 5.x files. You must run

If you choose to keep the 5.x installation, nothing from the old 5.x will be uninstalled by the
setup.sh script. In case you want to have both the 5.x and the 6.x servers running simultaneously, you must change the TCP port of either one of them, because otherwise the two installed servers will compete for default port 22.

- Your started task JCL for the server
- Operator instructions for running the server
- Any other
sshd2 init procedures (
/etc/rc for example)

/etc/ssh2/ are copied from the 5.x installation to your new installation at
/opt/tectia/ and they continue to be used with SSH Tectia Server 6.1 for IBM z/OS:
If you are using the SOCKS proxy functionality, you must review and update your
ssh-socks-proxy-config.xml configuration file after
