Installing IMS AAA Server and Administrator Software
The installation procedure copies the installation files to the Solaris server and runs the installer package.
To install IMS AAA Server and the Administrator software:
- Log into the Solaris server as
- Copy the IMS AAA Server installation files to the Solaris server.
Copy the files from the
/solarisdirectory on the installation CD to a local or remote hard disk partition that is readable by
The following example copies the files to the
# mkdir -p /opt/temp
# cp -pR /cdrom/solaris/* /opt/temp
- Change to the directory into which you copied the files in step 2.
# cd /opt/temp
- Uncompress the installation file with following commands:
# gunzip -c a3s-1.0.2150.0-solaris-10-sparcv8plus-sun-5.8.tar.gz | tar xvf -
As a result, two package files are extracted:
- JNPRa3s.pkg - package containing IMS AAA Server software
- JNPRa3sa.pkg - package containing IMS AAA Server Administrator software
- For each IMS AAA Server installation package, run the
pkgaddcommand as follows:
# pkgadd -ddirectory
# pkgadd -d
directoryspecifies the directory where you placed the package.
In the following command, the directory that follows the
-dparameter specifies the location where the JNPR
a3s.pkgcan be found. In this example (from step 2), the package was copied to
/opt/tempand that is the location where it can be found.
# pkgadd -d /opt/temp JNPRa3s.pkg
- When you are prompted to confirm that you want to install the package, enter

Validating the Server Installation Procedure
To validate the installation, navigate to the directory where the server was installed and verify that the system.xdb file is present. If this file is not present, the installation was not properly completed.
