Install the Agent on Unix from the Command Line

Install the AD Bridge agent on Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and IBM AIX by using a shell script that contains a self-extracting executable, an SFX installer with a file name that ends in sh.

Example:

adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc.pkg.sh.

The examples shown here are for Solaris Sparc systems. For other Unix platforms, use the correct installer name.

The name of a Unix installer for AD Bridge on installation media might be truncated to an eight-character file name with an extension. For example, l3499sus.sh is the truncated version of adbridge-x.x.1.3499.solaris.sparc.pkg.sh.

To view a list of command-line options, run the following command on 32-bit OS:

./adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_32.pkg.sh --help

On a 64-bit OS

./adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_64.pkg.sh --help
  1. Download or copy the installer to the computer desktop.
  2. Change directories to the desktop.
  3. As root, change the mode of the installer to executable:
    chmod a+x adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_32.pkg.sh

    On a 64-bit OS:

    chmod a+x adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_64.pkg.sh
  4. As root, run the installer:
    ./adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_32.pkg.sh

    On a 64-bit OS:

    ./adbridge-x.x.x.xxx.solaris.sparc_64.pkg.sh
  5. Follow the instructions in the installer.
