I tried to install the openssh client and server through "smit install_bundle" using the AIX dvds.  I get the following message during the install:
0513-071 The sshd Subsystem has been added.
0513-004 The Subsystem or Group, ssh, is currently inoperative.
instal:  Failed while executing the openssh.base.server.config script.


0503-464 installp:  The installation has FAILED for the "root" part
        of the following filesets:
        openssh.base.server 5.2.0.5301

installp:  Cleaning up software for:
        openssh.base.server 5.2.0.5301

0513-004 The Subsystem or Group, ssh, is currently inoperative.
cleanup:  Failed while executing the ./openssh.base.server.unconfig script.


0503-464 installp:  The installation has FAILED for the "root" part
        of the following filesets:
        openssh.base.server 5.2.0.5301
Filesets processed:  5 of 7  (Total time:  3 mins 30 secs).

SSH appears to be working fine, though.  The command "ssh -V" returns "OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009".

This is what I get when I do "lslpp -l | grep openssh":
freeware.openssh.rte       3.7.1.0  COMMITTED  OpenSSH 3.7p1
  freeware.openssl.rte       0.9.6.3  COMMITTED  OpenSSL, Secure Sockets Layer

Am I worried about nothing?

Hi,

first, cleanup your broken installation using

installp -C

Next, it seems that you have freeware.openssh.rte 3.7.1.0 installed (and freeware.openssl.rte with it) , which I assume is currently running, so it would block the ssh port.

Terminate the running sshd, uninstall the freeware.ssh and freeware.ssl stuff, then reattempt the installation.
