Use this procedure when unable to use the Deployment Manager Installation wizard to upload and install the software on your IBM i system. (See Installing or Updating Authority Broker for System Requirements and additional installation details.)
Download the Software for the IBM i from our website and run the Authority Broker 4.x (v4.13 or greater) installation wizard.
Note: During this step, the wizard extracts the save files needed for manual installation.
Identify where the installation wizard has extracted the save files; typically at a file path like the one below. Different versions of Windows may alter the location:
*where userprofile is your user name and xxxxxxx.tmp is a random temp directory.
Copy the “PTPAB4.PT” file to your desktop.
Rename the file from “PTPAB4.PT” to “PTPAB4.ZIP”.
Extract the files and copy the PTPAB4 SAVF to your desktop.
Log in to the System with QSECOFR, or another profile with similar authorities.
Issue the following commands:
CRTLIB PTINSTLIB (Note: If this library already exists, execute the command to clear the library: CLRLIB PTINSTLIB)
Open the PC Command Prompt Window.
Change to the directory of the SAVFs from step 6 above.
FTP the IBM i system.
Exit from the Command Prompt Window
Create a directory on the IBM i system to move the save files to:
Using iNav, drag/copy the savefiles PTINT3 from your PC to the '/POWERTECH/PTPAB4/' directory.
Use the CPY command to copy PTINT3 from the '/POWERTECH/PTPAB4' directory to the appropriate savefile. Note: The command is one line.
CPY OBJ('/POWERTECH/PTPAB4/PTPAB4.SAVF') TOOBJ('/QSYS.LIB/PTINSTLIB.LIB/PTPAB4.FILE') TOCCSID(*CALC) REPLACE(*YES)
rstobj sispgm1 qtemp *savf savf(PTINSTLIB/PTPAB4)
rstobj *all sispgm1 *savf savf(qtemp/sispgm1) rstlib(qtemp)
call qtemp/sislaunch (‘PTPAB4’ ‘PTINSTLIB’ ‘0’)
When Authority Broker installation is complete, proceed with licensing.
