Use this procedure when unable to use the Deployment Manager Installation wizard to upload and install the software on your IBM i system. (See Stand Guard Anti-Virus 7.4 for IBM i and Domino: Download and Installation for System Requirements and additional installation details.)

On Your PC

The .PT file is simply a .zip file and can be opened with WinZip, 7-Zip, WinRar, etc.

This file contains two SAVFs, a .jar file and a .props file. The .props file is used by the wizard and can be ignored during a manual installation.

  1. Download the Software for the IBM i from the Stand Guard Anti-Virus download page and run the StandGuard antivirus installation wizard.

    Note: During this step, the wizard extracts the save files needed for manual installation.

  2. Stop when you are prompted to enter system information, but keep the Installation Wizard open.
  3. Identify where the installation wizard has extracted the save files. Typically, the location is a path similar to the one below (and may vary slightly depending on your versions of Windows):

    C:\Users\userprofile\AppData\Local\Temp\HelpSystems\xxxxxxx.tmp

    *where userprofile is your user name and xxxxxxx.tmp is a random temp directory

  4. Locate the file “SGAV.PT” in the Powertech Product Maintenance Wizard folder.

    The .PT file is simply a .zip file and can be opened with WinZip, 7-Zip, WinRar, etc.

    This file contains two SAVFs, a .jar file and a .props file. The .props file is used by the wizard and can be ignored during a manual installation.

  5. Copy the “SGAV.PT” file to your desktop.
  6. Rename the file from “SGAV.PT” to “SGAV.ZIP”.
  7. Extract the files and copy the SGAV SAVF to your desktop.

On Your IBM i System

  1. Sign on to the System with QSECOFR, or another profile with similar authorities.
  2. Issue the following commands:

    CRTLIB PTINSTLIB (Note: If this library already exists, execute the command to clear the library: CLRLIB PTINSTLIB)

    CRTSAVF PTINSTLIB/SGAV730

  3. FTP the SAVF (SGAV730) to the library PTINSTLIB. (If FTP is not available, skip to step 4.)
    • Open the PC Command Prompt Window. 
    • Change to the directory of the SAVFs from step 6 above.
    • FTP the IBM i system.
    • Sign on
    • CD PTINSTLIB
    • BIN
    • Put SGAV730
    • Quit
    • Exit from the Command Prompt Window
  4. If you were able to FTP the save files, continue with step 5.

    However, if FTP is restricted with your network, you can use iNavigator (iNav) to get the save files on your IBM i system.

    CPY OBJ('/POWERTECH/SGAV730/SGAV730') TOOBJ('/QSYS.LIB/PTINSTLIB.LIB/SGAV730.FILE') TOCCSID(*CALC) REPLACE(*YES)

    • Create a directory on the IBM i system to move the save files to:

      MKDIR '/POWERTECH'

      MKDIR '/POWERTECH/SGAV730'

    • Using iNav, drag-copy the savefiles SGAV730 from your PC to the '/POWERTECH/SGAV730/' directory.
    • Use the CPY command to copy SGAV730 from the '/POWERTECH/SGAV730' directory to the appropriate savefile. Note: The command is one line.
  5. Run the following commands in order:

    rstobj sispgm1 qtemp *savf savf(PTINSTLIB/SGAV730)

    rstobj *all sispgm1 *savf savf(qtemp/sispgm1) rstlib(qtemp)

    call qtemp/sislaunch (‘SGAV730’ ‘PTINSTLIB’ ‘0’)

  6. When Stand Guard Anti-Virus installation is complete, proceed with licensing.
