5.0 Installation instructions
=============================

5.1 Before installing the provisional
-------------------------------------

5.1.1 Assign CANDLEHOME environment variable (UNIX/LINUX ONLY)

Before installing this provisional, on UNIX/Linux systems, make sure that
the environment variable $CANDLEHOME is set to the IBM Tivoli Monitoring
installation directory.
Note: The directory /opt/IBM/ITM is the default installation directory.

Before installing this provisional, on Windows systems, make sure that
the environment variable %CANDLE_HOME% is set to the IBM Tivoli Monitoring
installation directory.
Note: The directory C:\IBM\ITM is the default installation directory.


5.1.2 Backup files to be modified

The ITM common installer does not backup files during installation.
It is recommended that you backup your installation before apply this patch.


5.1.3 Patch Installation Requirements

This patch should be applied to the following entities of your IBM Tivoli
Monitoring environment.

All IBM Tivoli Monitoring Components


5.1.4 Additional information

- The prerequisites listed under section 3.1 entitled 'Prerequisites
for this provisional' must be installed before this provisional
can be installed.

5.2 Installing the provisional
------------------------------

5.2.1 Local installation

1. Transfer the appropriate archive file:
6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921.tar or 6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921.zip
to a temporary directory on the system that contains the code to be
updated. For the purpose of this README, the symbol <TEMP> represents
the fully qualified path to this directory.
Note: On Windows, this includes the drive letter.

2. Expand the archive file using the tar command on UNIX/Linux systems or
an unzip utility on Windows systems. This creates a directory
structure that contains fixes for all of the supported platforms.

3. Use the ITM common installer to install the provisional for each platform.

On a UNIX/Linux system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the install command would be:

<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921/install.sh -h $CANDLEHOME -p
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921/silent_gs.txt

You can safely ignore the message which is similar to the following:
No TF package in response file. Exiting

On a Windows x86 32 bit system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the install command would be:

cmd /c <TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WINDOWS\setup.exe
/z"/sf<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WINDOWS\silent_gs.txt"
/s /f2"%CANDLE_HOME%\logs\GSKit-IV30921_install_result.log"

On a Windows x86 64 bit system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the install command would be:

cmd /c <TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WINDOWS\setup.exe
/z"/sf<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WINDOWS\silent_gs.txt"
/s /f2"%CANDLE_HOME%\logs\GSKit-IV30921_install_result.log"

On a Windows IA64 system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the install command would be:

cmd /c <TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WIA64\setup.exe
/z"/sf<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WIA64\silent_gs.txt"
/s /f2"%CANDLE_HOME%\logs\GSKit-IV30921_install_result.log"


5.2.2 Remote Deploy installation

1. Transfer the appropriate archive file:
6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921.tar or 6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921.zip
to a temporary directory on the system that contains the TEMS depot to be
updated. For the purpose of this README, the symbol <TEMP> represents
the fully qualified path to this directory.
Note: On Windows, this includes the drive letter.

2. Expand the archive file using the tar command on UNIX/Linux systems or
an unzip utility on Windows systems. This creates a directory
structure that contains fixes for all of the supported platforms.

3. Add the patch bundles to the TEMS depot for deployment

On a UNIX/Linux system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the commands to add the
bundle for all <pc>s and applicable platforms to the depot would be:

$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921/unix
$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921/WINDOWS/Deploy
$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921/WIA64/Deploy

On a Windows system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the commands to add the
bundle for all <pc>s and applicable platforms to the depot would be:

tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\unix
tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WINDOWS\Deploy
tacmd addbundles -i
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921\WIA64\Deploy

4. Deploy the patch bundle to an endpoint and install it.

On a UNIX/Linux system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>/6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the commands to deploy the
bundle for each <pc> and applicable platform to the endpoint would be:

$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd login -t 1440 -s ....

$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd listsystems -t lz ux
$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd updateframework -n NODE2 -v 062302052
where: NODE2 is one of the Managed System Names listed by the
tacmd listsystems -t lz ux invocation above.

$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd listsystems -t nt
$CANDLEHOME/bin/tacmd updateframework -n NODE3 -v 062302052
where: NODE3 is one of the Managed System Names listed by the
tacmd listsystems -t nt invocation above.

On a Windows system, if the provisional was expanded to
<TEMP>\6.2.3-TIV-ITM-FP0002-IV30921, the commands to deploy the
bundle for each <pc> and applicable platform to the endpoint would be:

tacmd login -t 1440 -s ....

tacmd listsystems -t lz ux
tacmd updateframework -n NODE2 -v 062302052
where: NODE2 is one of the Managed System Names listed by the
tacmd listsystems -t lz ux invocation above.

tacmd listsystems -t nt
tacmd updateframework -n NODE3 -v 062302052
where: NODE3 is one of the Managed System Names listed by the
tacmd listsystems -t nt invocation above.


5.3 Verifying the update
------------------------
Use the cinfo or kincinfo command with the -t gs option and verify that
the gs version reports 07.40.43.00 .

On a UNIX/Linux system,
where $CANDLEHOME is the IBM Tivoli Monitoring installation directory.

$CANDLEHOME/bin/cinfo -t gs

will print one (or more) of the following:

gs IBM GSKit Security Interface aix523 07.40.43.00 d2305a -

On a Windows system,
where $CANDLEHOME is the IBM Tivoli Monitoring installation directory.

$CANDLEHOME/bin/cinfo -t gs
