    On a Solaris platform:

    Specify whether you want to use a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with the LDAP plug-in.

    Use of SSL with the LDAP plug-in requires the installation of SASL. Do you plan to use LDAP with SSL enabled [n]?
    • Enter y to use the SSL with the LDAP plug-in. Use of SSL with the LDAP plug-in requires the installation of the Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) package. The configure script checks whether the SASL package is installed in your system.
      Checking if SASL package [SMCSASL] is installed in the machine....
      • If the SASL package is not installed in your system, the installation of Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server software is aborted. You receive the following warning:
        WARNING: You have opted to use LDAP plug-in with SSL feature enabled. 
        However you do not have SASL package[SMCSASL] installed in your machine. It can found in the URL  http://sunfreeware.com/introduction.html
        Please install SASL package and then run configure again
        Exiting from configure script.........
        
      • If the SASL package is installed in your system, you are prompted to enter the type of installation.
    • Enter n, if you do not plan to use the SSL with the LDAP plug-in. You receive a warning and are then prompted to enter the type of installation:
      WARNING: In the future if you decide to use the LDAP plug-in with SSL enabled, please first ensure that the SASL package is installed in your machine before changing the configuration.

      Note: If you enable SSL with the LDAP plug-in without installing the SASL package while Steel-Belted Radius Carrier is running, the LDAP plug-in is disabled and you receive the following warning:

      WARNING: SASL libraries required to support SSL with LDAP authentication are not installed. At least one LDAP authentication module is configured to use SSL and has been disabled. Please install SASL, which can be found at https://sunfreeware.com/programlistsparc10.html, re-enable the LDAP plug-in(s), and restart SBR.

Migration

  1. The script prompts for the type of installation, either a new installation or a migration from an earlier release:
    Please enter backup or radius directory from which to migrate.
    Enter n for new configuration, s to search, or q to quit
    [n]: n 
    • For a new installation, enter n.
    • If you are migrating an existing Steel-Belted Radius Carrier installation and have copied a previous release’s files to the Release 8.3.0 server (in Creating a Copy of Existing SBR Server Release Files for Migration), enter the directory path to the copy of the old installation.

      For example:

      [/opt/JNPRsbr/PreviousInstall]:
    • If you are migrating an existing Steel-Belted Radius Carrier installation and have copied a previous release’s files to the Release 8.3.0 server (in Creating a Copy of Existing SBR Server Release Files for Migration), but you need to search for the directory that contains the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier files, enter s.

Note: Steel-Belted Radius Carrier Release 8.3.0 supports importing configuration files from previous versions of SBR Carrier.

If you select this option, remember that some files require manual editing and updating after installation. See Migrating from Previous SBR Releases.

  1. Specify whether you want to use the JRE installed in your system to enable JDBC plug-ins and JavaScript implementation.
    Do you want to configure Java Runtime Environment for JDBC Feature [n] : 
    • If no, press Enter to proceed to the next prompt. SBR Carrier does not support JDBC plug-ins unless you specify a valid JRE path.
    • If yes, type y and press Enter. You are prompted to specify the path where the JRE is installed in your system. The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) architecture should be compatible with SBR Carrier.

      Note: Java 1.7.0 or a later version is required to access the Web GUI. To support both JDBC plug-ins and Web GUI, it is recommended to use Java 1.7.0 or a later version with the JVM architecture compatible with your SBR Carrier. For example, if you are using the 32-bit version of SBR Carrier, you must use the 32-bit version of Java 1.7.0 or later.

      Enter 32-bit libjvm.so path (Ex: /opt/jvm/jre/lib/i386/client/ ) : 

      Note: If you enter an incorrect JVM path three times, SBR Carrier proceeds to the next step. In this case, you will not be able to use JDBC plug-ins. To specify the valid JVM path, you need to run the configure script again.

  2. Supply the name of the initial admin user, root.
    Enter initial admin user (UNIX account must have a valid password) [root]: 

    Press Enter to accept the default, root.

  3. Specify whether you want to set up centralized configuration management (CCM).
    Enable Centralized Configuration Management (CCM) for this SBR node? [n]: y
    
  4. If you have enabled CCM, specify the server role.
    Configure SBR node as CCM primary (p) or replica (r)? [r]: p
    
    1. If no other servers have been installed with CCM enabled, this is the first server to be installed, and CCM is used, this server must be the primary. Enter p to set the role as primary.

      If you set the role to primary, the script prompts for the host secret string.
      Enter primary host secret:

      Type the secret string and press Enter.

    2. The script prompts you to confirm the host secret string
      Confirm primary host secret:

      Type the secret string again and press Enter.

  5. Specify whether you want to use the auto-restart module that automatically restarts the SBR Carrier server in case of an unexpected shutdown.
    Do you want to enable "Radius WatchDog" Process? [n]: Y
    Radius WatchDog feature set to Enable
    Please ensure that Perl 5 or better is installed.
    

    Note: If Perl version 5 is not installed, the radiusd script will not run, even if enabled by configuration, and SBR Carrier will operate without the auto-restart module running.

  6. Specify whether you want to start the GWrelay process while executing the ./sbrd start script.
    Do you want to enable "GWrelay" Process? [n]: y
    GWrelay will be started with sbrd
  7. Specify whether you want to configure SBR Carrier to provide LDAP server emulation for configuration and statistics using the LCI.
    Do you want to enable LCI? [n] :
    • If no, press Enter to accept the default.
    • If yes, enter y and press Enter. You are prompted to provide information for LCI configuration.
      1. When you are prompted for the port number, enter the port number that is used for communication between SBR Carrier and the LDAP client.

        Note: SBR Carrier uses port 667 as the default for LDAP emulation to avoid conflict with other LDAP servers.

        Configure LCI Port [667]: 1026
        
      2. The script displays the interfaces available in the system. When you are prompted to enter interface addresses on which Steel-Belted Radius Carrier should listen for LCI requests, enter the addresses you want to use from the Available Interfaces list.
        LCI Interface Configuration :
        Available interfaces :
        127.0.0.1
        10.212.10.66
        
        HELP : Enter one interface per line and an empty line when finished.
        
        Enter LCI interface addresses from the above list.
        
        Enter LCI interface address : 10.212.10.66
        Enter LCI interface address : 127.0.0.1
        Enter LCI interface address :
        

        Note: SBR Carrier uses all interfaces for listening to LCI requests if you do not enter any interfaces.

      3. Specify whether you want to change the default LCI password to prevent unauthorized LDAP clients from accessing your database.
        Do you want to change LCI Password? [n]:
        • If no, press Enter to accept the default password.
        • If yes, enter y and press Enter. You are prompted to enter a new password.
          Do you want to change LCI Password? [n]: Y
          
          Password must meet the following requirements:
          
          1. 6-8 Alphanumeric characters.
          2. No Special characters other than underscore (’_’).
          
          Enter Password:
          Confirm Password:
          Password will be changed when SBR restarts.
          

        Note: Make sure that the entered password is at least 6 alphanumeric characters and not more than 8 characters in length. The password should not include any special characters other than underscore (’_’).

        Note: The configure script also checks whether the LDAP utilities (such as ldapdelete, ldapmodify, and ldapsearch) are installed in your system. For Linux, a warning message is displayed if you have not installed any of these utilities in your system. For Solaris, LDAP utilities are shipped with SBR Carrier package.

  8. Specify whether you want to configure Steel-Belted Radius Carrier for use with an Oracle database.

    To support this option, the server must already be configured as an Oracle client. (See Setting Up External Database Connectivity (Optional).)

    Configuring for use with generic database
    Do you want to configure for use with Oracle? [n]:

    If no, press Enter to accept the default.

    If yes, type y and press Enter. You are prompted for version and path information for the Oracle library files.

    Do you want to configure for use with Oracle? [n]: y
    Supported Oracle versions: 10, 11
    What version of Oracle will be used? [10]: 10
    Configuring for use with Oracle 10
    Setting the environment variable ORACLE_HOME
    Enter ORACLE_HOME [/dbms/u10/app/oracle/product/10.2.0]:
    Enter path for Oracle shared libraries
    [/dbms/u10/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/lib32]:
    Setting the environment variable TNS_ADMIN
    Enter TNS_ADMIN [/dbms/u10/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/network/admin]:

Note: Starting with the Oracle 11 release, Oracle began shipping 32-bit libraries with a 32-bit client that is separate from the 64-bit server. Do not specify the Oracle 11/lib directory that is shipped with the 64-bit server. Instead, specify the Oracle 11 /lib directory that is shipped with the 32-bit client.

  1. Specify whether you want the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server to communicate with an SS7 system using SIGTRAN.

    To support this option, the server must already be configured to support SIGTRAN using Signalware. (See Installing the SIGTRAN Interface (Optional) for an overview, and SIGTRAN Support for Steel-Belted Radius Carrier for specific instructions.)

    Do you want to configure for use with SS7? [n]: y
    Configuring for use with SS7
    Setting the environment variable OMNI_HOME
    Enter OMNI_HOME [/opt/JNPRss7]: 

    Caution: On a Linux machine that is installed with Signalware, do not enable SCTP protocol for Diameter connections. Enabling SCTP for both Signalware and Diameter could completely disable SCTP on the machine.

  2. Specify whether you want to install the optional SNMP module to monitor your Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server from an SNMP management station.
    Do you want to configure SNMP? [n]:
    • If no, press Enter to proceed to the next prompt.
    • If yes, type y and press Enter. The installer prompts you for the information it needs to configure the jnprsnmpd.conf and startsnmp.sh files.
      1. When you are prompted for a community string, enter the community string used to validate information sent from the SNMP subagent on the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server to your SNMP management station.

        Choose a community string: public

      2. When you are prompted for a range of IPv4 addresses, specify a starting IP address in Classless Inter-Domain Routing format. To specify that only one host may query the agent, enter the IP address of the host followed by /32. To specify that any host on a designated class C network may query the agent, enter the starting address of the network followed by /24.
        Specify the range of IPv4 addresses that may query this agent, such as 1.2.3.0/24. 
        Address range: 192.168.70.0/24
      3. If you are using SNMPv2, enter the DNS name or IP address of the trap sink to receive trap information from the SNMP subagent on the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server.
        SNMPv2 trap sink: 192.168.70.86
      4. Set the SNMP agent port.

        Although you may specify the default SNMP port, 161, we recommend that you specify a different port to avoid contention with other agents that are likely to already be using 161. If you choose an alternate port, make a note of it because your MIB browser needs to be configured to the same setting.

        Specify SNMP agent listening port[161]: 24161
      5. Specify a trap sink address, if required.
        Optionally specify a trap sink address that will receive SNMPv2 trap 
        [localhost]: 172.28.72.83 2
        SNMPv2 trap sink port[162]:
        Configuration of SNMP complete.
  3. The script searches for the Java 1.7.0 or later version in the default system path and displays a confirmation message if found.
    Configuring Admin GUI Webserver
    Compatible Java version found : 1.7.0_20
    

    If the specific version is not found, the script prompts you to enter the directory path where the specific Java version is installed in your system. For example, if the Java version is available in the /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_45/bin/java path, enter only /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_45, do not include bin/java.

    Enter Java version 1.7 installed path : 
    
  4. Specify whether you want to install a custom SSL certificate for the Web GUI. For more information about certificates, see the SBR Carrier Administration and Configuration Guide.
    Do you want to install custom SSL certificate for Admin WebServer? [n]:
    • If no, press Enter. A self-signed certificate is created and installed in the web server.
    • If yes, enter y and press Enter. You are prompted to enter the absolute path where the SSL certificate is available. For example, /opt/customSSLCert.pfx.
      Enter the absolute path to certificate.
      Note: Only *.pfx files are accepted. (Example-/opt/customSSLCert.pfx):
      

      When you are prompted for the password, enter the password to open the SSL certificate.

      Enter the password to open the certificate :
  1. Specify whether you want to configure the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server to autoboot (restart automatically when the operating system is restarted).
    Enable (e), disable (d), or preserve (p) RADIUS autoboot [e]: e
    

    Steel-Belted Radius Carrier stores its autoboot settings in the local /radiusdir/radius/sbrd file.

    • If you enter e (enable), the configure script copies the local sbrd script to /etc/init.d, where it is automatically invoked by the OS whenever the OS is stopped or started.
    • If you enter d (disable), the configure script removes all copies of the sbrd script from /etc/init.d, thus, disabling autoboot for all versions of Steel-Belted Radius Carrier.
    • If you enter p (preserve), the configure script does nothing, thereby leaving your previous autoboot scripts unchanged.

    When you finish entering settings, the script configures Steel-Belted Radius Carrier with the specified settings and then displays:

    The SBR Admin Web GUI can be launched using the following URL:
    https://<servername>:2909
    
    Configuration complete
