Xbrowser configuration on AIX 6.1 TL08 sp03

Hello friends today i am going to share how to access common desktop environment on x browser  .
Generally x browser or x session is require to do some software installation by oracle or SAP application team ,who are not familiar with command line prompt,but before using x browser ,AIX admin must install x11.dt fileset on AIX 6.1 TL08 SP03. so lets see step by step process.

Step 1.Install following X11 fileset from AIX 6.1 TL08 base media (X11.dt).also make sure that openssh and openssl already installed on server.

Step 2. 

Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Comment out following entry

X11Forwarding yes

Then refresh sshd service

#refresh –s sshd

Step 3.
#cd /etc
#ls –lrt |grep –i rc.dt
Execute rc.dt script by following command

Above command will show output like below
Starting AIX Windows session…………#

Step 4:
Also ensure that there is no port blocked on firewall for X11 server and X11 client.

Step 5:

Now how admin should test that xclock is working fine ??
Ans .Login To x browser using oracle or SAP user account then execute following command.

#export DISPLAY=hostname:0.0

here hostname is "IP address of your desktop"

here purpose of DISPLAY varibale is to tell x11 client where to run X11 server.

execute xclock command to test whether xclock is working or not.


if everything is OK then "xclock" command will show output like below.

at last we can say that application or database admin who are not familiar with command-line prompt ,can use x browser to do oracle RAC configuration or SAP installation using 
x browser.

Some common checklist before executing Xclock

1.Check that required X11 fileset installed on AIX server.

2.Openssh and openssl is installed on AIX server.
3.x11forwarding enabled in file /etc/ssh/sshd_config and after this sshd service refresh done.

4.most important After login to user session, export of "DISPLAY" variable done.

hope that this post will help .

Thanks !!!
