AIX 7 and adbindproxy Install Issue

Server AIX 7.1 TL 5 with CentrifyDC Express 5.4.2-668

 

The documentation (link) to install centrify-adbindproxy-5.4.0-aix6.1-ppc.tgz (IBM AIX 6.1 or later) says

  1. gunzip centrifydc-adbindproxy-*-aix6.1-ppc.tgz
  2. inutoc .
  3. installp -aY -d centrifydc-adbindproxy-*-aix6.1-ppc.bff CentrifyDC.adbindproxy
 Doing so returns...
 
Step 1 produces centrify-adbindproxy-5.4.0-aix6.1-ppc.tar
Step 2 returns new prompt
Step 3 Here in lies the issue. The command calls for a file with a .bff extension. Step 1 produced a file with .tar. No instruction on how to get us from one to the other.
 
My attempt to get the file to become .bff:
When I uncompressed the .tar file (tar xvf ), it produced 2 files: an html file and a same named .gz file.
I gunzip-ed the .gz file and it produced a file still with the same name as the original .tgz; however, it has no extension and added -bff to the name.
 
When I ran the installp command it responded with 0503-436... could not be accessed. Specify a valid device name.
 
I took a 'what if' and replaced the -bff with .bff but still no go. Same response.
 
Alternate Approach
Now, SMITTY did recognize the tar version of the file. Used it to run a mock install, and it returned a successful install message.
 
Not sure how reliable it is doing it this way. I used this alternate way to install this program the first time, and it worked once soon after its install. But after a reboot, the shares never came back online. Maybe it's coincidence.
 
Hence, why I am posting this. This time, I want to install it by the book.
 
Has anyone had success installing it using the same platform?

Welcome to Centrify forums!

 

We are building the same environment in the lab and trying to replicate the issue you mentioned. Will update you for any findings from us soon. 

 

For Samba share's not available after server rebooting, please check if the service Centrify Samba is not started along with the server starting up. 

 

Regards,

Amy

Re: AIX 7 and adbindproxy Install Issue

@PFS37273

We have the adbindproxy installed on the same os build AIX 7100-05 and it works without the issue like yours. 

The document missed the steps to untar and gunzip unextracted files from step 1 and you are correct to tar -xvf and gunzip those files with commands. 

 

May I know the exact installp command used in your env? 

- Is it "installp -aY -d centrifydc-adbindproxy-5.4.0-aix6.1-ppc-bff CentrifyDC.adbindproxy"?

 

Can you 'ls -al' the folder contents with the -bff file generated? 

 

Can you send us the output when executing the installp command with receiving the error "0503-436... could not be accessed"? 

 

Thanks,

Amy

Re: AIX 7 and adbindproxy Install Issue

I ran it with the asterisk. Copied and pasted from the install doc.

 

This time used the command you gave. It included the actual file name, and the install worked.

 
installp -aY -d centrifydc-adbindproxy-5.4.0-aix6.1-ppc-bff CentrifyDC.adbindproxy

We are glad to hear the good news. Yes you should specify the version number and avoid using * in the command. 

 

Have a nice day!
