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 /opt/tmp/

    $ls -ltr

    Execute:

    gunzip sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tgz

    tar xf sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.sparc.tar

    For 64-bit Solaris, execute:

    cd /opt/tmp/

    $ls -ltr

    Execute:

    gunzip sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.sparcv9.tgz

    tar xf sbr-sa-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

    For 64-bit Solaris, execute:

    ls -ltr

  5. Install the package.

    Execute:

    pkgadd -d /opt/tmp (location of the unzipped and untarred installation)

  6. Type all and press Enter.

    The script resumes.

  7. Confirm the working directory.

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

  8. Confirm that you want the directory created, if required. Enter y.

    The script resumes.

  9. Confirm that you want to continue to install the package. Enter y

    The script resumes.

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-sa-8.4.0.R-1.el6.i686.rpm.

    To install the 64-bit SBR package, execute:

    yum localinstall sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.el6.x86_64.rpm on RHEL 6.*

    yum localinstall sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.el7.x86_64.rpm on RHEL 7.*

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

    Note

    If you are installing the 32-bit SBR Carrier package on a 32-bit Linux machine, execute rpm-i -nodeps sbr-sa-8.4.0.R-1.el6.i686.rpm on RHEL 6. Before installing the SBR Carrier package on the RHEL 6 operating system, you must ensure that the following packages are manually installed in your system: ed, bc, ksh, libX11(x86-32), libXp(x86-32), libXt(x86-32), libXtst(x86-32), and openssl(x86-32).

    The 32-bit version of SBR Carrier is not supported on RHEL 7.

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