AIX - GSKit V8 - Install / Upgrade Instructions


Use root login or root credentials for the following procedure.
The same steps work for both initial installation as well as an upgrade.
  1. Download the required GSKit V8 file for AIX platform from IBM Fix Central.
    The name of the file will be of the form: 8.r.m.f-TIV-GSKIT-AIX-FPnnnn.tar.gz
    Note: r.m.f are release, maintenance and fix level of GSKit V8 and nnnn is the fix level.
  2. After download, transfer(scp/ftp) the file to the target AIX system and extract the same:

    ==> cd <path_where_gskit_tar.gz_file_is_kept>
    ==> gunzip -c 8*-TIV-GSKIT-AIX-*.tar.gz | tar -xf -
    Note: The above creates a folder with name 8.r.m.f-TIV-GSKIT-AIX-FPnnnn and extracts all files into that folder.
  3. The contents of the folder 8.r.m.f-TIV-GSKIT-AIX-FPnnnn :

    ==> cd 8.r.m.f-TIV-GSKIT-AIX-FPnnnn # Use the correct name as per your download.
    ==> ls -1 # Output will be as seen below.

    GSKit8.gskcrypt64.ppc.rte
    GSKit8.gskssl32.ppc.rte
    GSKit8.gskssl64.ppc.rte

    Description of the files:
    GSKit8.gskcrypt32.ppc.rte - 32 bit IBM GSKit Cryptography Runtime
    GSKit8.gskcrypt64.ppc.rte - 64 bit IBM GSKit Cryptography Runtime

  4. Stop Tivoli Directory Server related processes (ibmdiradm and ibmslapd) and any other processes (such as secldapclntd or TAM related processes) which use gskit.
  5. Run the command to unload any unused shared libs:

    ==> slibclean
  6. Install the filesets: (note the dot/period in the command below which denotes current working directory where the installable packages are available)

    ==> installp -acXgYd . GSKit8

    After the completion of the above installp command verify the installation summary to see SUCCESS for each fileset.
  7. Verify the installed fileset levels:

    ==> lslpp -l GSKit8*
  8. Start Tivoli Directory Server related processes (ibmdiradm and ibmslapd) and any other processes (such as secldapclntd or TAM related processes) which use gskit.
