This chapter describes the prerequisites for installing the CiscoWorks Blue SNA View workstation program and contains the following major sections:
This section lists the UNIX workstation requirements for CiscoWorks Blue SNA View.
All CiscoWorks Blue SNA View workstations must have either TCP/IP or LU 6.2 connectivity to the SNA View mainframe. The TCP/IP connectivity is provided through the workstation operating system. The LU 6.2 connectivity is provided by one of the following products.
To verify your workstation's compliance with the prerequisite requirements, issue the workstation commands shown in Table 2-1.
|Hard Disk Space
|lscfg | grep mem
|/etc/dmesg | grep Kbytes
|dmesg | grep mem
|Swap Space Size
Before you install the SNA View workstation program, you must have root user authority. The user named root can perform functions restricted from normal users. You can log in to your system as the root user, or you can become the root user by using the su command. You will then be asked to enter the root user's password.
|Caution If you are a relatively inexperienced UNIX user, limit your activities as the root user to the tasks described in this publication. As the root user, you can adversely affect your operating environment if you are unaware of the effects of the commands that you use.
If you are not logged in, you can log in as the root user by responding to the login prompt with the username "root." When you log in as the root user, the command prompt changes to a pound sign (#).
If you are already logged in, but not as the root user, use the su command to become the root user:
The command prompt changes to a pound sign (#), indicating that you are now the root user.
