Creating symbolic links for the Domino plug-in on AIX hosts

Contributors Download PDF of this page

You must perform this procedure to add symbolic links for the Domino plug-in on AIX hosts.

You should not copy and paste commands directly from this document; errors (such as incorrectly transferred characters caused by line breaks and hard returns) might result. Copy and paste the commands into a text editor, verify the commands, and then enter them in the CLI console.

Note The paths provided in the following steps refer to the 32-bit systems; 64-bit systems must create simlinks to /usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib.
  1. Add links to /usr/lib for the following files:

    • libxmlproc_r.a

    • libndgts_r.a

    • libnotes_r.a

    • libgsk8iccs_r.a (for Domino 9.0 or later only) A typical method of creating a symbolic link is to use the ln command:

    ln -s /path/to/source_file /usr/lib/linked_file

    + where:

    • -s instructs the operating system to make a symbolic link.

    • /path/to/source_file is the path to one of the Domino library files, including the file name.

    • linked_file is the name of the file that is being linked.

      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/ibmpow/libxmlproc_r.a /usr/lib/libxmlproc_r.a
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/ibmpow/libndgts_r.a /usr/lib/libndgts_r.a
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/ibmpow/libnotes_r.a /usr/lib/libnotes_r.a
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/libgsk8iccs.so /usr/lib/libgsk8iccs_r.a
  2. Verify the path to the files listed in Step 1.

    The commands in this example use the default path for AIX, but installations can vary.
