Unpacking the Installation Package

The contents of the installation package are binary programs and EBCDIC text files. Use binary mode to copy the package and unpack it without coded character set conversion.

Before copying and unpacking the installation package, make sure that the temporary directory has at least 300 MB of free space.

Online Package

If you are installing from a downloaded online package, do the following steps:

  1. Unpack the online package tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6-comm.tar to a suitable temporary location, for example /tmp in the USS file system, with the following command:

    In the commands, <version> indicates the product release version (for example, 6.2.5) and <b> indicates the current build number of the package.

    > cd /tmp
    > tar xvf tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6-comm.tar
    

    This will create the directory /tmp/tectia-server-zos-<version>-ibmzos_1_6-comm that contains ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z package.

  2. Unpack the ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z package with the following commands:

    > cd tectia-server-zos-<version>-ibmzos_1_6-comm
    > tar xvzf ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z
    

    This will create the directory:

    /tmp/tectia-server-zos-<version>-ibmzos_1_6/ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>

CD-ROM

If you are installing from CD-ROM, do the following steps:

  1. Copy the ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z package to a suitable temporary directory, for example /tmp in the USS file system.

  2. Unpack the ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z package to a temporary location, for example /tmp in the USS file system, with the following command:

    > tar xvzf ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>-ibmzos_1_6.tar.Z

    This will create the directory /tmp/ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>.
