This document discusses how to install and configure a WebSM for AIX 4.3.3. The information in this document applies to AIX 4.3.3.
If you are using Internet Explorer, it must be version 5 or later. Internet Explorer users may need to download and install the Java Plugin. You can access more information about installing the plugin at How to Download and Install the Java Plugin.
IBM HTTP Server is provided on the first CD of the 4.3.3 Bonus Pack. The bonus pack issued prior to November, 1999 contains the 220.127.116.11 version. The latest version is 18.104.22.168. With the latest version, the directory structure has been changed. Both structures are shown below for configuring the document dirctory. You can use another webserver, but you will need to know the path to their document directory. If you choose to install the IBM HTTP Server, the following filesets will need to be installed.
IBM HTTPServer at 22.214.171.124:
http_server.base.core http_server.base.source http_server.modules.ssl
IBM HTTPServer at 126.96.36.199:
http_server.admin http_server.base.rte http_server.base.source
NOTE: The Httpdlite Web Server that is installed with the filesets IMNSearch.rte.httpdlite will not work.
To see if there is a webserver running, enter:
ps -ef | grep httpdThis should return one httpd process.
To test the webserver, open a browser and go to the following URL:
http://<machine.name>This should bring up the main page of the webserver. If there are errors at this point, you will need to contact the proper support for their webserver software. IBM HTTP Server and Lotus Domino Go is supported by WEB103 which is a callback only group. If you are using Netscape Fastrack, you will need to contact Netscape.
The following filesets will need to be installed from the first CD of the 4.3.3 Base Installation media:
sysmgt.help.msg.en_US.websm sysmgt.msg.en_US.websm.apps sysmgt.websm.apps sysmgt.websm.diag sysmgt.websm.framework sysmgt.websm.icons sysmgt.websm.rte sysmgt.websm.ucf sysmgt.websm.widgets sysmgt.websm.rteThe following fileset will need to be installed from the second CD of the 4.3.3 Base Installation media:
For IBM HTTP Server at 188.8.131.52, the path is /usr/lpp/HTTPServer/share/htdocs.
For IBM HTTP Server at 184.108.40.206, the path is /usr/HTTPServer/htdocs.
For Lotus, the path is /usr/lpp/internet/server_root/pub.
For Fastrack, you select the path when you setup the webserver. The default path is /usr/ns-home/docs. Enter:
/usr/websm/bin/wsmappletcfg -docdir <your web server>For example, the command for an IBM HTTP Server webserver would be:
/usr/websm/bin/wsmappletcfg -docdir /usr/lpp/HTTPServer/share/htdocs
/usr/websm/bin/wsmserver -enableNOTE: SMIT/smitty can now be used to configure WebSM. Enter:
Select Web-based System Manager
Ensure that the correct path is in the Documents directory
Press the Enter key to configure.
After successful configuration, it is still neccessary to run /usr/websm/bin/wsmserver -enable to enable the WebSM server.
Now WebSM is set up on the system. You will need a compatible browser to
connect to WebSM. If you are able to install Netscape locally, the following
filesets will need to be installed from the first CD of the 4.3.3 Bonus
Netscape.communicator.com Netscape.communicator.plugins Netscape.communicator.us Netscape.help.en_US.communicator.rte Netscape.msg.en_US.communicator.rte
There are versions of this browser for the following operating systems:
HP UX 10

Instructions for AIX:
gzip -dc filename | tar -xvf -
cd the_directory_you_just_extracted_to ./netscapeIf you are using Internet Explorer, it must be version 5 or later. Internet Explorer users may need to download and install the Java Plugin.
