Installation Instructions

Download the Stand Guard Anti-Virus for AIX application. Current users can access the download from My Account page. If you're a new user, you should have received an email message containing the download link. If you don't have it, contact your Regional Manager.

  1. Save the download file to any empty directory.
  2. Change to that directory.
  3. As root extract the tar file to the same directory with tar -xvf sgav_aix_p.tar.
  4. For installation instructions, see the readme_first.txt and install.txt files extracted from sgav_aix_p.tar. The installation creates a /home/standguard/ directory and the license file obtained from Bytware must be placed in that directory before Stand Guard Anti-Virus for AIX will run. The license file is named license.xml and will only work on the partition or computer using the MAC address you sent to HelpSystems.
