fix

Please refer to the following steps:

  1. Log on to the agent computer using the root account, or su to root.

  2. If you are installing an agent on an HP-UX computer, refer to the following steps. This procedure describes how to mount the CD-ROM in a way that preserves long filenames.
    1. Log on to the HP-UX computer as root, or su to root.

    2. Using the /etc/fstab CD-ROM entry as a guide, add your CD-ROM device to /etc/pfs_fstab. For example, your /etc/fstab entry may look like the following:

      /dev/dsk/c0t2d0 /cdrom cdfs ro,cdcase,suid 0 0

    3. To show the device name of the CD-ROM device, enter ioscan -C disk -f -n . The /etc/pfs_fstab entry defines /cdrom, but you may use /SD_CDROM if you prefer.

    4. In this case, the corresponding /etc/pfs_fstab entry looks like the following:

      /dev/dsk/c0t2d0 /cdrom pfs-rrip xlat=unix 0

    5. Start the pfs daemons. If you want to create an rc script that starts the daemons automatically, type the following lines in an rc script:

      nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd > /dev/null 2>&1 &
      nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd 4 > /dev/null 2>&1 &

    6. Make sure the mount point exists. You can create the mount point by entering mkdir /cdrom .

    7. Insert the VSA for Unix installation CD-ROM into the CD-ROM device, then mount it using the following command: /usr/sbin/pfs_mount/$cdrom where $cdrom is the device that you defined in /etc/pfs_fstab.

    8. Enter cd /cdrom , and enter ls to see the contents of the CD-ROM with long filenames preserved.

    9. Proceed with Step 5.

  3. If you are installing an agent on an IBM AIX computer, mount the CD-ROM by entering mount -v cdrfs -o ro /dev/cd0 /cdrom .

  4. Mount the VSA for Unix installation CD-ROM.

  5. Change directories to the CD mount point.

  6. Enter the following command to start the installer script: /bin/sh ./install.sh.

  7. Select the default installation path (/usr) by pressing Enteror enter a new installation path for the agent, and confirm your selection by pressing Enter.

  8. Select the default uvserv port number (1622) by pressing Enteror enter a different uvserv port number.

  9. Select the default uagent port number (2620) by pressing Enteror enter a different uagent port number.

  10. Select the inetd restart method for uagent and uvserv (inetd) by pressing Enter or enter one of the following restart methods:
    • rclink (starts the agent from an rc script?this option is not available for BSD-based computers)
    • inittab (starts the agent at the default run level)
    • inetd (restart method?starts the agent when required, unloads the agent when it is no longer needed)

  11. Select the default restart method (innittab) for detectd (the Detect watchdog) by pressing Enteror enter one of the following restart methods:
    • rclink (starts the Detect watchdog from an rc script?this option is not available for BSD-based computers)
    • inittab (default restart method?starts .
      the Detect watchdog at the default run level)

  12. If you installed VSS (required for VSM), type the IP address of the VSS computer and press Enter.

  13. If you installed VSS, select the default VSS port number (1626) by pressing Enter, or enter a different port number.

  14. If you installed SM, type the IP address of SM computer and press Enter.

  15. If you installed SM, select the default SM port number (1723) by pressing Enter, or enter a different port number.

  16. If you want to enable SNMP alerts, type the IP address of the computer where you want the agent to send SNMP alerts and press Enter.

  17. Press Enter to start installing the files.

  18. When the installation is complete, pressEnter to start the agent.

  19. When you are finished installing agents locally, you must use the Agent Manager utility in the Utility Console to synchronize encryption across all agents and the Utility Console. To do this, refer to the following knowledge base article and return to this step:

  20. Install any Service Packs or Patches that you downloaded from www.netiq.com/support per the instructions that are included with the update.

  21. If you have a VSA for Unix 4.0 license file, refer to the following knowledge base article and return to this step:

    https://www.netiq.com/kb/esupport/consumer/esupport.asp?id=NETIQKB37539

  22. Click Home and review the task pad. The license information at the top should be correct and the utilities should not be grayed-out.

  23. If the task pad information is correct, the installation is complete and you are ready to use the other utilities in the Utility Console.

note
 It is not necessary to uninstall previous versions of the agent before installing VSA for Unix 4.0.
