Transferring Installation Files to Mainframe

Before the actual installation, you need to transfer the files required for the installation to your z/OS host.

You can upload the files for example using FTP as follows:

  1. Connect to your z/OS host and change file transfer mode to binary:

    ftp USER@zoshost
    ftp> binary
  2. Upload the Tectia SSH Assistant XMIT file SSZASST.XMIT using data set attributes RECFM=FB LRECL=80 TRACKS PRIMARY=15:

    ftp> quote site RECFM=FB LRECL=80 TRACKS PRIMARY=15
    ftp> put SSZASST.XMIT
  3. Upload the product tar archive ssh-tectia-server-zos-6.5.0.XXX-ibmzos_1_13.tar.Z using data set attributes RECFM=U BLKSIZE=32256 LRECL=0 CYLINDERS PRIMARY=120:

    ftp> quote site RECFM=U BLKSIZE=32256 LRECL=0 CYLINDERS PRIMARY=120
    ftp> put ssh-tectia-server-zos-6.5.0.XXX-ibmzos_1_13.tar.Z SSZ.V6500XXX.TARZ

    (Replace the XXX in the tar archive and destination data set names with the correct build number.)

    The product tar archive can be transferred to either the Unix file system or to a sequential data set. Approximately 55M or 120 cylinders are required.

  4. Upload the product licenses tar archive to the user's home directory:

    ftp> cd /u/user/
    ftp> put licences.tar
    ftp> quit
