Summary: 

Install CA XCOM Data Transport for Oracle Solaris specifying zones.

Instructions: 

To Install CA XCOM into:

    1. The Global Zone Only issue:
      groupadd xcomadm (Add to Global Zone /etc/group)
      pkgadd -G -d /cdrom/CAXCOM.INS (From the Global Zone)

    2. The Non-Global Whole Root Zone issue:
      groupadd xcomadm (Add to Non-Global Whole Root Zone /etc/group)
      pkgadd -d /cdrom/CAXCOM.INS (From the Non-Global Whole Root Zone)

    3. The Non-Global Sparse Root Zone that inherits /usr issue:
      groupadd xcomadm (Add to both Global and Non-Global Sparse Root Zone /etc/group(s))
      pkgadd -G -d /cdrom/CAXCOM.INS (From the Global Zone)
      pkgadd -d /cdrom/CAXCOM.INS (From the Non-Global Sparse Root Zone)

    4. The Non-Global Sparse Root Zone that does not inherit /usr issues:
      groupadd xcomadm (Add to Non-Global Sparse Root Zone /etc/group)
      pkgadd -d /cdrom/CAXCOM.INS (From the Non-Global Sparse Root Zone)

 

To Uninstall CA XCOM from a:

    1. Global Zone Only:
      pkgrm XCOM (From the Global Zone)

    2. Non-Global Whole Root Zone:
      pkgrm XCOM (From the Non-Global Whole Root Zone)

    3. Non-Global Sparse Root Zone that inherits/usr:
      pkgrm XCOM (From the Global Zone)
      pkgrm XCOM (From the Non-Global Sparse Root Zone)

    4. Non-Global Sparse Root Zone that does not inherit/usr :
      pkgrm XCOM (From the Non-Global Sparse Root Zone)

Configuring TCP/IP

The Txpi Service

With Solaris 10, many standard Solaris services are now managed by the Service Management Facility or SMF. Traditional UNIX start-up scripts, init run levels, and configuration files are now stored as an XML file called manifests. They contain a complete set of properties that are associated with a service or a service instance and are stored in the service configuration repository.
Once the /etc/service and /etc/inetd.conf files have been updated, the entries need to be converted and placed into SMF service manifests.

TCP/IP Configuration Summary

In general, follow these steps to configure TCP/IP:

    1. To support remotely initiated transfers, modify the /etc/inetd.conf configuration file to include a subserver for the txpi service.
    2. Add a service to the file services that defines a port address for Advantage/Unicenter CA-XCOM Data Transport TCP/IP transfers.

      • For NIS, you must edit /etc/services on the NIS server.
      • For NIS client systems, you must also perform a push of the services data from the server system.


    3. Update the inetd process (command line processing only)

To /etc/services add:

 txpi              8044/tcp 
 txpis             8045/tcp 

To /etc/inetd.conf add:

 txpi    stream tcp         nowait  root      /opt/CA/XCOM/bin/xcomtcp REMOTE 0
 txpis stream tcp           nowait  root      /opt/CA/XCOM/bin/xcomtcp REMOTE 0 SSL 

4.   The following procedure converts inetd.conf entries into SMF service manifests and makes the entries available to the inetd process. This procedure needs   to be run anytime a third-party application that depends on inetd is added to a system. Also run this procedure, if you need to make configuration changes to the entry in /etc/inetd.conf.

a.  Become superuser or assume a role that includes the Service Management rights profile.
b.  Convert the inetd.conf entries. The inetconv command converts each entry in the selected file into service manifests accessible by the inetd process.

    inetconv -i filename

c. The following commands can be used to list properties and shoewshow the status of the txpi/tcp service:

  i.  List the properties for txpi service

  inetadm -l /network/txpi/tcp

  ii.  Show the status of the txpi service 

          svcs -l /network/txpi/tcp
