To download the software

  1. Verify that you have enough space on your filesystem to store the downloaded software.

    The estimated space for download, gunzip, and tar extract is:

    4 GB

    See Disk space requirements.

    If you plan to install the software on the same system, make sure that you also have enough space for the installed software.

  2. To see the space available, you can use the df command with the name of the local file system where you intend to download the software.

    # df -k filesystem


    When you select a location to download files, do not select a directory that contains Veritas products from a previous release or maintenance pack. Make sure that different versions exist in different directories.

  3. Download the software, specifying the file system with sufficient space for the file.
