Configure Platform Services#Execute the script
/usr/local/ASAM/bin/PlatformServices/plat-configThis will configure your /usr/local/ASAM/data/asamplat.conf file and then connect with the directory to mint the SSL certificate for secure communication with the driver.
If the certificate was not minted, and it gives an error then you will need to debug that error and execute
/usr/local/ASAM/bin/PlatformServices/PlatformServicesProcess/asampsp -sThis will regenerate the SSL certificate.

Name the scripts for start and stop init process with these commands:
mv asampspd S98asampspd mv asamrcvrd S99asamrcvrd cp S98asampspd K98asampspd cp S99asamrcvrd K99asamrcvrd
Modify login.cfg#Edit the file /etc/security/login.cfg and change the line with auth_type = to the Below:
