Installing the software on an AIX system

The InfoPrint Notification client is installed on all InfoPrint AIX servers with the InfoPrint Manager for AIX Base Server, LCD4-5654.
Note: If you are using the InfoPrint Manager Notifications client to receive notifications from an InfoPrint Manager AIX server, you must start the client from the system that it is installed on. You cannot telnet into the AIX system where the notification client is installed from another system and try to start the Notification client.

To install the InfoPrint Notification client on an AIX system where you have not installed the InfoPrint server:

  1. Make sure that you have the latest service installed from the Service DVD-ROM.
  2. Log onto AIX as root.
  3. Insert the InfoPrint Manager: Common Clients DVD-ROM, LCD4-5642, into the drive.
  4. If this is the first time you are installing software on this AIX system, create the /cdrom file system.
    1. Start the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT).
      • To start the graphic version of SMIT, enter this command:
        smit cdrfs
      • To start the ASCII version of SMIT, enter this command:
        smitty cdrfs
      The DVD-ROM File Systems panel is displayed.
