Uploading Files Required for Upgrade

Upload the Tectia SSH Assistant XMIT file (SSZASST.XMIT) and the Tectia Server for IBM z/OS product tar archive (ssh-tectia-server-zos-6.5.0.XXX-ibmzos_1_13.tar.Z) to your z/OS system.

[Note]Note

In the case of a major release upgrade, upload also the new licenses tar archive to the z/OS host.

You can transfer the files directly to DASD using FTADV or site commands to set the data set attributes. In the following we provide you with example commands for uploading the files using Tectia and OpenSSH clients.

Using Tectia Client

sftpg3 USER@zoshost 1
sftp> binary 2
sftp> sput SSZASST.XMIT /ftadv:LR=80,REC=FB,SU=TRKS,PRI=15,T=PS,S=NO,\
F=STREAM/__SSZASST.XMIT 3
sftp> sput ssh-tectia-server-zos-6.5.0.XXX-ibmzos_1_13.tar.Z /ftadv:RECFM=U,\
BLKSIZE=32256,LRECL=0,CYLINDERS,PRI=120,T=PS,S=NO/__SSZ.V6500XXX.TARZ 4
1

Connect to zoshost.

2

Set file transfer mode to binary.

3

Upload the XMIT file using FTADV to set the data set attributes.

4

Upload the product tar archive using FTADV to set the data set attributes. (Replace the XXX in the tar archive and destination data set names with the correct build number.)

Using OpenSSH Client

sftp USER@zoshost
sftp> binary
sftp> put SSZASST.XMIT /ftadv:LR=80,REC=FB,SU=TRKS,PRI=15,T=PS,S=NO,\
F=STREAM/__SSZASST.XMIT
