AIX New Installation

-

Obsolete

The following are the steps required to establish a new RS/6000 as a machine in the Mt Xia AIX Web environment.

Each web environment machines will have two internal 18 GB drives and will NOT have any connections to external EMC drives. Since the second internal drive will be used as a mirror of the first, all file systems will reside within the root volume group (rootvg). The build process will consist of creating a complete image of the base machine on hdisk0, then mirroring the root volume group onto hdisk1.

  1. Install AIX 4.3.3, TCB, and the latest maintenance level. The Trusted Computing Base (TCB) must also be installed at this time. It CANNOT be installed after AIX is installed, it MUST be installed during the initial system load.
  2. Create each additional logical volume required by the Mt Xia AIX standard configuration. The following table associates the host name of each machine with the three character identifier to use when creating volume groups, logical volumes, and file systems.
  3. Host Name 3 Character ID
    ftwpd01 pdx
    ftwpd02 pdx
    ftwqapd01 pdq
    ftwdvpd01 pdd
    ftwdvws01 wsd
    ftwqaws01 wsq
    ftwqaht01 htq
    ftwdvht01 htd
    ftwhti01 hti
    ftwhti02 hti
    ftwedgi01 egi
    ftwedgi02 egi
    ftwdvedg01 egd
    ftwqaedg01 egq
    ftwdb201 db2
    ftwdvdb201 dbd
    ftwdb202 db2
    ftwqadb201 dbq

    1. Logical Volume: /dev/XXX##ctmalv (inner middle) (128mb)
      • $ mklv -yXXX##ctmalv -aim rootvg 4 hdisk0
    2. Logical Volume: /dev/XXX##hloglv (inner middle) (128mb)
      • $ mklv -yXXX##instlv -aim rootvg 4 hdisk0
    3. Logical Volume: /dev/XXX##instlv (inner edge) (128mb)
      • $ mklv -yXXX##instlv -aie rootvg 4 hdisk0
  4. Create each additional file system required by the Mt Xia AIX standard configuration.
    1. File System: /home/logs
      • $ crfs -v jfs -a bf=true -dXXX##hloglv -m/home/logs -Ayes -prw -tno -a nbpi=4096 -a ag=64
      • $ mount /home/logs
    2. File System: /bmc/ctmagent
      • $ crfs -v jfs -a bf=true -dXXX##ctmalv -m/bmc/ctmagent -Ayes -prw -tno -a nbpi=4096 -a ag=64
      • $ mount /bmc/ctmagent
    3. File System: /usr/sys/inst.images
      • $ crfs -v jfs -a bf=true -dXXX##instlv -m/usr/sys/inst.images -Ayes -prw -tno -a nbpi=4096 -a ag=64
      • $ mount /usr/sys/inst.images
  5. Create user groups
    • Group ID: 5690136 - Group Name: controlm
  6. Create Users
    • User ID:    0 - User Name: shutdown
      • Home Directory: /shutdown
      • Primary Group: system
      • Initial Program: /bin/ksh
      • Description: System Shutdown User
    • User ID: 2751564 - User Name: ctmagent
      • Home Directory: /bmc/ctmagent
      • Primary Group: controlm
      • Initial Program: /bin/csh
      • Description: CONTROL-M/Agent
  7. Create initial passwords
    • User Name: shutdown
    • User Name: ctmagent
  8. Create directories
    • /home/logs (root.controlm 775)
    • /home/logs/backup (root.system 755)
    • /home/logs/system (root.system 755)
    • /home/logs/shutdown (root.system 755)
    • /home/logs/ecs (root.system 777)
    • /home/locks (root.system 755)
  9. Install TSM backup client software
    • Create a directory to hold the TSM files

    • Modify tsm-instl
      • Comment out:
      • # compress tsm732.tar

        and insert the following line:
      • zcat tsm732.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
    • Run the script tsm-instl
    • Modify /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.opt
