Installing and Configuring Kerberos on OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2

  Index

Kerberos Version 2.0 was automatically installed during the installation of OpenVMS Version 7.3-2, or during an upgrade from a previous version of OpenVMS to Version 7.3-2. Perform the following steps to upgrade Kerberos to Version 3.0 on OpenVMS Version 7.3-2.

See Example 2-2 for a sample Kerberos configuration log. (The configuration log is the same on OpenVMS I64, OpenVMS Alpha, and OpenVMS VAX.) Example 2-3 shows an installation log on OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3-2.

  1. Download the Kerberos kit from the Kerberos for OpenVMS website at

    http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/products/kerberos/

  2. Shut down Kerberos by executing SYS$STARTUP:KRB$SHUTDOWN.COM.

  3. Install the Kerberos Version 3.0 kit by entering PRODUCT INSTALL KERBEROS. This command will automatically remove the previously installed version. (You do not need to expand the PCSI$COMPRESSED file; PCSI installs from the compressed kit directly.)

  4. Add @SYS$STARTUP:KRB$SYMBOLS to SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGIN.COM, if Kerberos was not previously installed and configured.

  5. Execute KRB$CONFIGURE.COM, if Kerberos was not previously installed and configured.

  6. Start Kerberos by executing SYS$STARTUP:KRB$STARTUP.COM.
