How to install T1 (File Transfer Enablement) on UNIX

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you add T1 (File Transfer Enablement) under Unix and Linux?

Answer

The T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component is required on the hub TEMS, on each Remote TEMS (RTEMS), and on each T3, T4, T5, T6, TO, and TU agent host.

Note: Starting in ITM 6.22 FP02, T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support is integrated into the hub TEMS and RTEMS when you initially install the TEMS. The ITM version of T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component is a superset of the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component that ITCAM for Transactions installs. Consequently, do not manually install the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component on the TEMS if the TEMS is at maintenance level 6.22 FP02 or later. Manually installing the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component on the TEMS at maintenance level 6.22 FP02 or later backlevels the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component.

The process for adding T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support is functionally the same in ITCAM for RT 6.2 and ITCAM for Transactions 7. Note that the process of adding T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support is not documented in the ITCAM for Response Time (RT) 6.2 user manuals. However, a detailed procedure for adding this support is provided in the ITCAM for Transactions 7 Installation and Configuration Guide.

Note: The following instructions apply to ITM installations prior to ITM 6.22 FP02 only.

Maintenance Level Requirements

1) The maintenance level of the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component on a given agent server must match the maintenance level of the ITCAM for Transactions agents that reside on that server.

2) The maintenance level of the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component on the hub and RTEMS servers must be at the same or higher maintenance level as the ITCAM for Transactions agents.

3) The maintenance level of the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component must be the same on the hub TEMS and RTEMS.

Downloading the T3 Agent Installer

We commonly use the T3 product code as an alias for the agent name. To download the CD installation image for the T3 agent, use the following agent names:

  • ITCAM for Response Time V6.2 -- End User Response Time Dashboard Agent
  • ITCAM for Transactions V7 -- Application Management Console

Adding T1 (File Transfer Enablement)

Here is how to add T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support from the T3 agent CD image to a TEMS or RTEMS under Unix or Linux.

Step 1 - Install the T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support package on the TEMS and each RTEMS.

After you add Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP) Browser Client support, Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server (TEPS) support, and Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server (TEMS) support from the T3 agent CD image (items 7, 8, and 9 in the product packages list), select your operating system. Then, select ITCAM File Transfer Enablement from the list of packages that are available for installation. The following is a sample session. Perform this procedure on the TEMS and each RTEMS.

Change the current directory to the T3 agent CD image. Run the install.sh command.

# ./install.sh
INSTALL

Enter the name of the IBM Tivoli Monitoring directory

Step 2 - Restart the TEMS and each RTEMS.

Step 3 - Verify T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support installation.

On the TEMS host and each RTEMS, change the current directory to ITM_HOME/bin. Enter the command ./cinfo. Select option #1 (Show products installed in this CandleHome). If T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support is installed, you see an entry like the following. In RT 6.2, 64-bit AIX platforms display as 32-bit AIX as shown in this example.

t1 ITCAM File Transfer Enablement
aix513 Version: 06.20.00.00

NOTE: The T1 (File Transfer Enablement) support package is added to the T3 (End User Response Time Dashboard or ITCAM Console) application support. The T1 (File Transfer Enablement) component does not exist as a separate agent.

Because T1 (File Transfer Enablement) is not an agent, an error message displays if you attempt to configure, "seed," or start/stop this entity. However, using these commands do not harm your enterprise environment:

itmcmd config -A t1
itmcmd support -t <tems-name> t1
itmcmd agent { start | stop } t1

A status entry for ITCAM File Transfer Enablement appears in the Manage Services GUI on Unix and Linux platforms. Please ignore this entry. This is a cosmetic defect. The status of this entry is shown to be stopped. Since T1 (File Transfer Enablement) is not an agent, you cannot start this entity. Attempting to start File Transfer Enablement generates an error message, but causes no harm to your enterprise environment.
