No longer need sdshell in order to authenticate locally to server after installing RSA ACE/Server 5.2
CauseLocal client no longer available in RSA ACE/Server 5.2 product
ResolutionYou can test authenticate local to the server by using the sdtestauth script. If you intend to lock down the server, you will need to install the RSA ACE/Agent for UNIX

The ACE/Agent for UNIX is only available via the RSA Security download page

1. After downloading the file, extract using the command "gunzip -c <filename> | tar xvf -" or tar xvf <filename> depending on your download selection.

2. Run "sdsetup -agent" from the aceagent/<platform> directory for your operating system (sol for Solaris, hp for HP-UX, aix for IBM AIX)

3. After accepting the license agreement you will be prompted as follows:

"An RSA ACE/Server installation is detected in '.../ace/prog'.
The current RSA ACE/Agent will be updated with this installation."

4. Enter 'y' to continue and complete the installation.

Note: The ACE/Agent will need to be reinstalled if the ACE/Server software is reinstalled or upgraded at a later date.
