Prefix and Suffix Installation Instructions

A prefixed or suffixed installation is performed by specifying the -p or -s arguments to pbinstall and pbuninstall, respectively. Both options take one argument: the prefix or suffix to be used.

With a prefix or suffix specified, or both, the names of all of the executable programs, services and ports, and default log file names are qualified with that prefix or suffix, or both.

Prefixes are always added to the beginning of the name. Suffixes, with the exception of the daemon error logs and man page file names, are added to the end of the name. Daemon error logs are named (for example) {prefix}pbmasterd{suffix}.log.

You cannot use a prefixed or suffixed installation with Privilege Management package installations.

If Privilege Management for Unix and Linux is installed with a prefix or suffix, execute pbuninstall using the same prefix or suffix. Failure to correctly specify the prefix or suffix to pbuninstall results in either pbuninstall failing or the uninstall of the incorrect copy of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux.

The pb.cfg file is also prefixed or suffixed when it is created.
