To prepare for installation

  1. Do one of the following to navigate to the installation script:

    From the product CD

    Do all of the following steps:

    • Insert the CD that contains the Symantec Message Filter software into the CD-ROM drive.

      The CD mounts automatically to /cdrom/smf_630 on Solaris systems.

    • If you use Linux, mount the CD-ROM.

      $ mount /dev/cdrom
      $ cd /mnt/cdrom

      The mount command can fail if you have modified

      /etc/fstab.
    • Change to the appropriate directory for your CD-ROM.

      $ cd operating_system
    • Copy the appropriate .tgz file for your operating system to your computer.

    From a downloaded file

    Locate the .tgz file that you have downloaded on your computer.

  2. Change to the directory on your computer where you copied the tgz file.

  3. Type the following command to uncompress and untar the distribution file:

    Solaris

    $ tar -zxvf SMF_630_sparc_solaris.tgz

    Linux

    $ tar -zxvf SMF_630_x86_linux.tgz
  4. Locate the following file:

    /root/<location where you saved the .tgz file>/SMF_630/install
