Installing Parallel Sysplex

To install ZD&T Parallel Sysplex®, run the installer from the root user ID.

  1. Open the directory that contains the installer ZDT_Install_PS_V14.0.0.tgz.
  2. Change the authority.
    chmod 755 ZDT_Install_PS_V14.0.0.tgz
  3. Decompress the installer.
    tar -xzvf ZDT_Install_PS_V14.0.0.tgz
  4. Optional: Read the README.txt file for the complete installation steps.
  5. Run the installer.
  6. Select 2 for ZD&T Parallel Sysplex.
  7. Select 1 to install.
  8. Press ENTER, and read the license agreements carefully. At the end of the license, enter yes to accept or no to decline the terms.
  9. Optional: Enter y to install all needed dependencies or select n to decline.

    By entering y, all required dependencies will be installed. The list of dependencies are mentioned in the Prerequisites. You need to have access to internet and software repository to install the dependencies. Otherwise, installation will complete without dependencies, and you need to install the dependencies manually.

  10. After the installation completes, run the following command to verify whether the installation is successful.
    • RHEL operating system
      rpm -qa | grep z1091
    • UBUNTU operating system
      dpkg -l | grep z1091
    If the package is installed successfully, the following output is displayed.
    Important: The installer creates the ibmsys1 as the non-root user ID to make ZD&T work, you need to switch to ibmsys1 and change the password. If you like to create the non-root user ID, use the following commands for reference. Make sure that the non-root user ID is a part of group zpdt.
    To create the user ID, use the following command:
    useradd -d /home/ibmsys2 -g zpdt -m ibmsys2
    To delete the user ID, use the following command:
    userdel -r ibmsys2
Alternatively, after you complete steps 1 - 4, you can install ZD&T Parallel Sysplex silently by using the following command.
./ZDT_Install_PS_V14.0.0.x86_64 --install --zdtps
To install the dependencies, run the following command:
./ZDT_Install_PS_V14.0.0.x86_64 --install --zdtps --dep
