Deployment of RSYNC on a Solaris host

This section describes how a Solaris application server host can be configured with RSYNC for LFMT collection.

Installation of RSYNC on Solaris

  1. Download the following software packages from the website www.sunfreeware.com:
    • libgcc-3.4.6-sol10-sparc-local.gz
    • popt-1.16-sol10-sparc-local.gz
    • libiconv-1.14-sol10-sparc-local.gz
    • libintl-3.4.0-sol10-sparc-local.gz
    • rsync-3.0.9-sol10-sparc-local.gz
  2. Copy each file to the /usr/sfw/bin directory on the Solaris host.
  3. Unzip and install the file libgcc-3.4.6-sol10-sparc-local.gz from the /usr/sfw/bin directory, as follows:
    1. Enter the following commands to unzip the file and start the installation:
      gunzip libgcc-3.4.6-sol10-sparc-local.gz
      pkgadd -G -d libgcc-3.4.6-sol10-sparc-local
    2. When prompted for the packages to be processed, enter all or press Enter.
    3. When prompted if you want to create the base directory, enter y.
    4. When installation is complete, the following message appears:

      Installation of <SMClgcc346> was successful.
  4. Unzip and install the file popt-1.16-sol10-sparc-local.gz from the /usr/sfw/bin directory, as follows:
    1. Enter the following commands to unzip the file and start the installation:
      gunzip popt-1.16-sol10-sparc-local.gz
      pkgadd -G -d popt-1.16-sol10-sparc-local
    2. When prompted for the packages to be processed, enter all or press Enter.
    3. When installation is complete, the following message appears:

      Installation of <SMCpopt> was successful.
  5. Unzip and install the file libiconv-1.14-sol10-sparc-local.gz from the /usr/sfw/bin directory, as follows:
    1. Enter the following commands to unzip the file and start the installation:
      gunzip libiconv-1.14-sol10-sparc-local.gz
      pkgadd -G -d libiconv-1.14-sol10-sparc-local
    2. When prompted for the packages to be processed, enter all or press Enter.
    3. When installation is complete, the following message appears:

      Installation of <SMCliconv> was successful.
  6. Unzip and install the file libintl-3.4.0-sol10-sparc-local.gz from the /usr/sfw/bin directory, as follows:
    1. Enter the following commands to unzip the file and start the installation:
      gunzip libintl-3.4.0-sol10-sparc-local.gz
      pkgadd -G -d libintl-3.4.0-sol10-sparc-local
    2. When prompted for the packages to be processed, enter all or press Enter.
    3. When installation is complete, the following message appears:

      Installation of <SMClintl> was successful.
  7. Unzip and install the file rsync-3.0.9-sol10-sparc-local.gz from the /usr/sfw/bin directory, as follows:
    1. Enter the following commands to unzip the file and start the installation:
      gunzip rsync-3.0.9-sol10-sparc-local.gz
      pkgadd -G -d rsync-3.0.9-sol10-sparc-local
    2. When prompted for the packages to be processed, enter all or press Enter.
    3. When installation is complete, the following message appears:

      Installation of <SMCrsync> was successful.
  8. Make sure that RSYNC is in the /usr/bin directory. To check, enter the command which rsync. You will get one of two responses:
    • /usr/bin/rsync—RSYNC is in the correct directory.
    • <install directory/rsync>—RSYNC is not in the correct directory; enter cp <install directory/rsync> /usr/bin to copy it to the correct directory.
  9. Repeat this procedure, starting at step 2 for each Solaris host.
