Installing the agent for Sybase

The agent binaries for Cluster Server agent for Sybase are a part of the VRTSvcsea fileset. The VRTSvcsea fileset is already installed if you chose to install all packages or recommended packages during VCS installation. You must manually install the VRTSvcsea fileset if you installed minimal packages during VCS installation.

You can also install the Cluster Server agent for Sybase from the product disc.

Install the agent for Sybase on each node in the cluster.

To install the agent on AIX systems

  1. Log in as superuser.
  2. Make sure that the agent is not already installed.

    Navigate to /opt/VRTSagents/ha/bin and list the contents of the directory. If the command returns the VCS agents for Sybase, you can skip this procedure.

  3. Find the device access name of the disk drive, using the following commands:
    # cd /dev
    # lsdev -C -c cdrom

    The system output resembles the following:

    cd0 Available 10-60-00-4,0 16 Bit SCSI Multimedia 
    CD-ROM Drive


    In this example, cd0 is the device access name of the disk.

  4. Insert the disk with the VCS software into the drive that is connected to the node.
  5. Use the following command to mount the software disk using the device access name found in 3.
    # mkdir -p /dvdrom
    # mount -V cdrfs -o ro /dev/cd0 /dvdrom
    # cd /dvdrom
  6. To navigate to the directory containing the filesets and then to install the agent, run the following commands:
    # cd pkgs


    The VRTSvcsea fileset includes the agent binaries for the Sybase agent. The fileset also installs the VCS agents for DB2 and Oracle.

    # installp -ac -d VRTSvcsea.rte.bff VRTSvcsea
  7. Copy the file from /etc/VRTSagents/ha/conf/Sybase/ directory to /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config directory.
