Complete the Installation

After you finish making menu choices, do the following to complete the installation:

  1. Use the c command to continue the installation.
  2. A prompt asks if all of the installation settings are correct. If they are correct, then specify y. If they are not correct, then specify n, make the necessary changes, and continue the previous step.
  3. A prompt asks if you want to view the installation script. Choose n.

 

This option is intended for troubleshooting by BeyondTrust Technical Support; the generated installation script contains thousands of lines of code.

  1. A prompt asks if you want to install the product now. Press Enter to accept the default of y.
  2. The installation script now executes and installs Privilege Management for Unix and Linux components on this machine.
  3. If a Privilege Management for Unix and Linux policy file exists, it is not modified. If you do not have a policy file, then create a policy file using the following command:
    touch /opt/pbul/policies/pb.conf

 

An empty policy file rejects all Privilege Management for Unix and Linux commands. For information about writing policy files, see the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux Policy Language Guide.

  1. Change the permissions on the policy file so that it can be read by root only:
    chmod 600 /opt/pbul/policies/pb.conf

The installation is now complete.

pbmakeremotetar Installation Script

Deployment of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux across multiple machines of the same platform type can be simplified by cloning the installations. Installation cloning is done by making a remote tarball using pbmakeremotetar, a menu-driven, interactive installation script.

pbmakeremotetar Installation Information

The section contains information about running an example pbmakeremotetar installation.

  • pbmakeremotetar is used to clone an installed copy of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux so it can be quickly installed on other hosts that use the same Privilege Management for Unix and Linux flavor. The directory structure on the target systems must also be the same as on the host that is running pbmakeremotetar.
  • pbmakeremotetar properly configures (as appropriate) /etc/services and the superdaemon configuration files (/etc/inetd.conf, /etc/xinetd.conf, or SMF).
  • For Policy Server target installations, an initial installation (not a remote installation) must be done before any target remote installation. Doing so ensures that all licensing issues are handled properly.
  • Different target system installation working directories should be used for different prefix and/or suffix versions of cloned installations.
  • pbmakeremotetar scans the main policy file (by default /opt/pbul/policies/pb.conf from v9.4.3+ and /etc/pb.conf prior to v9.4.3) for included policy files and includes them in the tarball. If the main policy file is encrypted, pbmakeremotetar is not able to scan it for included policy files. Therefore, if the main policy file is encrypted, you must do one of the following:
    • Restore the unencrypted policy file before running the pbmakeremotetar installation script.
    • Specify each encrypted policy file in the editor session after answering y to the Do you wish to make changes to this list? prompt:
    • Manually move the encrypted files to the target systems.
    • For pbmakeremotetar/pbremoteinstall installations where integration with AD Bridge is desired, if AD Bridge is configured on the system where the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux instance is cloned, when the cloned instance is installed, if the AD Bridge libraries are missing, then a warning message is displayed.

Remote Installations Using pbmakeremotetar

Remote installations using pbmakeremotetar perform the following three basic steps:

  1. Execute pbmakeremotetar.
  2. Make the created tar file available to the target system.
  3. Unarchive the tar file and execute remote_unpack from that tar file.

Example of a pbmakeremotetar Execution

The following is an example of a pbmakeremotetar execution:

# ./pbmakeremotetar -a /opt/beyondtrust/pb.tar

Building encapsulating tarball remote_unpack

/opt/beyondtrust/pb.tar has been built

Make the Tar File Available to the Remote System

To make the tar file available to the remote system, you can use FTP (image mode), NFS, or any other mechanism as long as the security and integrity of the binary tar file are maintained.

If tar –x warns about a directory checksum error, then the tar file archive may be corrupt because it was copied in ASCII, not binary (or image) mode.

Untar the Remote Archive and Execute remote_unpack

When the tar file is made available to the remote system, a temporary working directory must be selected to unarchive the remote archive. An installation work directory other than /tmp should be selected (for the same reasons as with pbinstall). Unpacking the archive makes the encapsulated tar archive and a script called remote_unpack visible.

The remote_unpack script then executes. This script unpacks the encapsulated tar file (putting the files in their required places) and reconfigures the system files (/etc/services and the superdaemon configuration) for Privilege Management for Unix and Linux.

The following listing shows an example execution of the remote_unpack script:

pbpatchinstall Installation Script

BeyondTrust occasionally releases patches to the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux product that improve performance and fix problems. You install these patches with the pbpatchinstall installation script.

pbpatchinstall Installation Information

This section contains information about installing a Privilege Management for Unix and Linux patch with the pbpatchinstall script.

pbpatchinstall determines the current release of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux that is installed on the machine and whether the release is compatible with the current patch. Multiple patches can be installed.

Based on the type of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux host that is installed on the machine (policy server host, submit host, log host, and so forth), pbpatchinstall copies only the appropriate files to the appropriate directories to replace the existing files. pbpatchinstall makes a backup copy of all replaced files. These backup files are then available to restore the original files if the patch needs to be removed.

All Privilege Management for Unix and Linux daemons running a process during the patch installation should be stopped before using pbpatchinstall and restarted after using pbpatchinstall.

After you extract a Privilege Management for Unix and Linux patch tarball file, the patch version becomes part of the directory path. For example, in the patch directory: /opt/beyondtrust/powerbroker/v5.1/ pbx86_linuxA-5.1.2-03-sp1/install, the patch version is pbx86_linuxA-5.1.2-03-sp1.

The pbpatchinstall installation process performs the following:

  • Inventories the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux installation, using prefixes and/or suffixes (if any). Use the -p and/or -s arguments if you want pbpatchinstall to use prefixes and/or suffixes.
  • Validates the existence and version of the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux binary files that should be present for each component.
  • Lists the Privilege Management for Unix and Linux components that are currently installed.

The Privilege Management for Unix and Linux patch release number must match the installed Privilege Management for Unix and Linux release number. If the release numbers do not match, a prompt is displayed, stating that the patch release does not match the existing Privilege Management for Unix and Linux release and asks if you want to install the patch release over the existing Privilege Management for Unix and Linux release. To complete the installation, type y.

To run the patch installation without this prompt, use the -f argument.
