Tectia

Running the Setup Script

[Note]Note

Before continuing the installation, make sure that all the required permissions, SSHD2 user account and /opt/tectia/ directory are set. The user account used for running the setup script must have read access to the BPX.FILEATTR.PROGCTL FACILITY.

[Note]Note

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Tectia Server for IBM z/OS,read the instructions in Upgrading Previously Installed Secure Shell Software before continuing.

Go to the directory into which the installation package was unpacked and run the setup script, for example:

> cd /tmp/ssh-tectia-server-zos-<version>.<b>
> ./setup.sh

If you run the script in the TSO OMVS shell you may need to press the PF10 key from time to time to keep the shell in the RUNNING state.

The setup script does the following:

  • It copies the binaries, manual pages, and configuration files under /opt/tectia.

  • It makes the server program-controlled.

  • It creates a host key pair (1536-bit RSA) if none is previously available at /opt/tectia/etc/hostkey and /opt/tectia/etc/hostkey.pub. For example, if the software is upgraded from an earlier version, a new key pair is not created but the existing key pair is used..
