Install openssh on AIX 7.1

Installing openssh on AIX 7.1 is pretty much straight forward.  Finding the right openssh version can be the worse part of installing on AIX 7.x.  The below is a small doc so that I can remember where I placed this version and hopefully help others as well looking to install openssh on AIX 7.x.

AIX 7.x comes bundled with openssl, to verify, type openssl in command prompt, then version and you should have something similar.

OpenSSL> version
OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011
OpenSSL>

If you do not have the above, then you can do two things.  Insert the AIX expansion pack media and do:

smitty install_software or

geninstall -d/dev/cd0 R:openssl-version

Download the this package http://repo.rogersit.net/aix-7-1/openssh/openssh.base to the tmp dir on your server and run:

geninstall -I”Y” -d/tmp I:openssh.base
