c31, i.e. console selection. Installation via serial console is an alternative option.
INed, X11.dev, bos.adt, bos.ext, bos.net, txtfmt, xlc 1.3, 3270In particular the networking filesets are mandatory, otherwise it would not be possible to configure network cards.
You may install yet more software, as much as your disk can hold.
The AIX 3.2.5 tape file sets comprise approx 1GB.
Before doing so, however, one should increase the
to at least 16MB (32768 512byte blocks):
smitty System Storage Management - File Systems - Add / Change / Show / Delete File Systems - Journaled File Systems - Change / Show Characteristics of a Journaled File Systemotherwise the installation might fail due to lack of space for temporary files. The target file systems, however, are enlarged automatically.
/etc/inetd.confdisable all unnecessary services. If the machine should offer boot services,
tftpmust be enabled.
chmod o-x /usr/bin/ypcat
/etc/inittabthe console should be activated before NIS services:
rctcpip:2:wait:/etc/rc.tcpip > /dev/console 2>&1 # Start TCP/IP daemons cons:0123456789:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/console rcnfs:2:wait:/etc/rc.nfs > /dev/console 2>&1 # Start NFS Daemonsotherwise the machine won't boot if NIS can't be activated. Note that the
rcnfsline must be present in order for the
automountdaemon to work.
YPBIND_MAXWAIT=5 # wait only 5 secondsto avoid
NIShangs in case of network unavailability.
smitty - System Environments - Change Number of Licensed Usersand tab to
Greater than 64to allow other users than
rootvgin 3.1/3.2 has no
/opt/filesystem to hold local freeware und such. Use
smittyto create a
hd10optlogical volume (32MB minimum) and the respective
JFS(at mount point
/opt). See example how to create LVs/JFSs. If not sure how large the "logical partition" size is, use size=1 to begin with. Use
smitty Physical & Logical Storage - File Systems - Add / Change / Show / Delete File Systems - Journaled File Systemsto increase the size if needed.
chmod a-t /tmpto allow
xinit(to start X desktop). Can't remember if this is true for AIX 3.2.
InfoExplorer(we are dealing with the pre-HTML era here :-).
InfoExploreras well as some of the documentation filesets are included on the OS installation media. These filesets are named "Documentation" or carry the extension
.info. Yet more documentation (approx 300MB total) can be found on the separate InfoExplorer CD. Unfortunately it is not
smit-installable. You may use the following procedure to install more documentation:
mount -r -vcdrfs /dev/cd0 /cdrom # mount the CD ls -l /cdrom # list all info available on the CD ls -l /usr/lpp/info/lib/En_US/ # list all info already available on the system # copy info datasets, typically not found on base media cp -p -r -h /cdrom/hardware /usr/lpp/info/lib/En_US/ cp -p -r -h /cdrom/update /usr/lpp/info/lib/En_US/You might need to increase the
smitty Physical & Logical Storage - File Systems - Add / Change / Show / Delete File Systems - Journaled File Systems - Change/Show ...
AIX version 3 doesn't come with separate man pages,
man command reuses the InfoExplorer datasets.
For this to work, the steering file
/usr/lpp/info/data/ispaths must exist.
After a fresh installation, this file points only to a
minimum amount of information. To get more, use:
cp -p /usr/lpp/info/data/ispaths /usr/lpp/info/data/ispaths.save cp -p /usr/lpp/info/data/ispaths.full /usr/lpp/info/data/ispaths
mount -r rs6kf:/applfs/applb01/AIX /mnt /mnt/POWER/32/installopt.sh
