Unpacking Session State Register Software

This section assumes that you are installing Steel-Belted Radius Carrier on your Solaris server for the first time or that you are installing Steel-Belted Radius Carrier in a directory other than the one used by previous installations—a clean installation.

These instructions may be used for unpacking software on any type of node host. Perform this step on each node host in the cluster before proceeding to the next step.

Package Management Commands

The installer for the Solaris version of the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server software uses pkg files with filenames that include the edition and version of the server software.

Table 21 lists common Solaris package management commands.

Uninstall Steel-Belted Radius Carrier.

To install the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server software:

On the Solaris server:

  1. Log in to the Solaris server as root.
  2. Copy the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier installation files from their download location to the Solaris server. Make sure to copy them to a local or remote hard disk partition that is readable by root.

    This example copies the files from a download directory to the /tmp/sbr directory.

    Execute:
    mkdir -p /opt/tmp
    cp -pR /tmp/sbr/solaris/* /opt/tmp/

  3. Extract the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier installation package.

    For 32-bit Solaris, execute:
    cd /tmp/sbr
    ls -ltr

    total 216240
    -rw-r--r--   1 root     root     110712276 Aug 25 09:44
    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tgz
    

    Execute:
    gunzip sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tgz
    tar xf sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tar

    For 64-bit Solaris, execute:
    cd /tmp/sbr
    ls -ltr

    total 216240
    -rw-r--r--   1 root     root     110712276 Aug 25 09:44
    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparcv9.tgz
    

    Execute:
    gunzip sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparcv9.tgz
    tar xf sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparcv9.tar

  4. Verify that the extraction worked and confirm the name of the package file.

    For 32-bit Solaris, execute:
    ls -ltr

    total 216256
    drwxr-xr-x   4 Xtreece  other        370 Aug 24 17:01 JNPRsbr.pkg
    -rw-r--r--   1 root     root     110712276 Aug 25 09:44 
    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tar
    

    For 64-bit Solaris, execute:
    ls -ltr

    total 216256
    drwxr-xr-x   4 Xtreece  other     370 Aug 24 17:01 JNPRsbr.pkg
    -rw-r--r--   1 root     root      110712276 Aug 25 09:44 
    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.sparcv9.tar
    
  5. Install the package.

    Execute:
    pkgadd -d /tmp/sbr

    The following packages are available:
    1  JNPRsbr.pkg        JNPRsbr - Juniper Networks Steel-Belted Radius (Carrier Cluster Edition)          (sparc) 8.40.50006
    Select package(s) you wish to process (or 'all' to process all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]:  all
    
  6. Type all and press Enter.
    The script resumes.
    Processing package instance <JNPRsbr.pkg> from </tmp>
  7. Confirm the installation directory.

    Depending on the system configuration, the script prompts you to create the /opt/JNPRsbr directory if it does not exist, over-write an already-extracted package, or any of several other questions.

    The selected base directory </opt/JNPRsbr> must exist before installation is attempted.
    Do you want this directory created now [y,n,?,q]

    Answer the question appropriately (or change the extraction path if necessary) so that the script can proceed.

    To accept the default directory as a target, enter y.
    The script resumes.

    Using </opt/JNPRsbr> as the package base directory.
    #Processing package information.
    #Processing system information.
       48 package pathnames are already properly installed.
    #Verifying disk space requirements.
    #Checking for conflicts with packages already installed.
    #Checking for setuid/setgid programs.
    This package contains scripts which will be executed with super-user
    permission during the process of installing this package.
    Do you want to continue with the installation of <JNPRsbr> [y,n,?]
  8. Confirm that you want to continue to install the package. Enter y.

    Installation of <JNPRsbr> was successful.

On the Linux server:

  1. Log in to the Linux server as root.
  2. Copy the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier installation files from their download location to the Linux server. Make sure to copy them to a local or remote hard disk partition that is readable by root.

    This example copies the files from a download directory to the /tmp/sbr directory.

    Execute:
    mkdir -p /opt/tmp
    cp -pR /tmp/sbr/linux/* /opt/tmp/

  3. Execute cd /opt/tmp/.
  4. Install the package.

    To install the 32-bit SBR package, execute:

    yum localinstall sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.el6.i686.rpm.

    To install the 64-bit SBR package, execute:

    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.el6.x86_64.rpm on RHEL 6.*

    sbr-cl-8.4.0.R-1.el7.x86_64.rpm on RHEL 7.*

    *See Linux for supported RHEL 6 and RHEL 7 releases.

  5. Installation proceeds and SBR is installed at /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/install.
