Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

I have a SQL Server 2012 DTS package that receives data from AS400. Before these three days, everything was going well.

But suddenly when I tried to run these error messages appeared:
1. SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED.  The PrimeOutput method on AS400 returned error code 0xC02090F5.  The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.
2. The AS400 was unable to process the data. CWBCO1054 - A user-specified time-out occurred while sending or receiving data.

Sometimes when I run it manually, it ran perfectly, but sometimes the error messages appeared. I need to run it several times till the error didn't show up. Different when I ran through batch file (task scheduler/sql job agent), I always got fail.

I already checked the connection by test the credentials, ping and telnet to the server. It's okay.

Any idea why this error is coming up? I appreciate any assistance from everyone :)

Thanks a lot

Can someone help with below requirement.....

I have a physical file with one of the field with variable length and it has contents as given below. My requirement is to substring the the IFS links just before the *OMIT for all occurrence .

For example, the i should get  /QSYS.LIB , /QDLS, /TMP/BRMS , /QIBM/ProdData ....from first record.

From second record, nothing, as the *OMIT is not present

From third record, i should get /QIBM/UserData/OS400/TCPIP/QTOCHOSTS

From fourth record, i should get /QSYS.LIB, /QDLS

Once i get these substrings, i will right it them to another file in one column field.

Sample records in the file are ....

OBJ(('/*' *INCLUDE) ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) ('/QDLS' *OMIT) ('/TMP/BRMS' *OMIT) ('/QIBM/ProdData' *OMIT))
OBJ(('/home/cdimage'))
OBJ(('/QIBM/UserData/OS400/TCPIP/QTOCHOSTS' *OMIT))
OBJ(('/*' *INCLUDE) ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) ('/QDLS' *OMIT))
OBJ(('/fixes'))

Thanks in advance !!

I have an IBM iSeries AS400 V5R4 that NFS was setup on and can see the folders/files on the Windows 2012 STD server, I'm able to transfer a PDF to the Windows location \\aacfile01\as400\actpdf and I see the file but when I go to open the file it give me an Access Denied. It gives me the First Window SecuritySecond Windows SecurityThird Windows Security, as you can see it adds Domain Users twice and one of them shows up as Deny. Until I manually go in and change the Deny to Allow is when I am able to open the file. Hopefully this makes sense. Any help would be appreciated......

Hello. I am trying to setup a 5250 Printer Session from a remotely located IBM ISeries (V7R1M0) to my local machine using an HP LaserJet M605 printer. I have setup many 5250 Printer Sessions before using other printers (HP LaserJets, Lexmark) but for some reason after I set this one up to print to the M605 printer, nothing prints. The ISeries seems to be sending the print file normally but the M605 does not print anything. I am assuming that there is some "trick" to getting this to work but I don't know what it is. I have tried the Manufacturer and Model Type paramter to other types of printers without success. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You!

I'm looking for zipping tools that could create zips with password
for OS/400 R7  platform so that sensitive data in files are encrypted
& when we sftp over to Windows/Unix, the encrypted zipfiles are
sent over : for PCI-DSS compliance, we want data at rest to be
encrypted both at AS400 & the Windows/Unix ends.

Ideally the zipping tool can be called by RPG & Cobol

In Unix, we can 'pipe' data stream directly into a zip; would be good
to have this feature for the AS400 tool.  

Also, we have tons of logs (eg: audit trails) taking up valuable space
in AS400 so this zipping can hopefully reduce the size of these

I'm totally confused, nowhere I'm getting proper information about how to start programming in AS/400.
What are the software & hardware requirements of AS/400? What should I know about AS/400 to become a programmer in that?
How can I do JAVA, C, C++, C#, .net programs using AS/400, or is there any other way?

I will be pleased, if anyone could provide a detailed information.

Hi ,

I have some question regarding ICF file and its uses in AS400 RPGLE . It would be great help if someone explain me as I am beginner in this area.

2) Is there any way to check , insert or delete data in ICF file as SQL and runqry does not work on ICF File.

There's concerns that trojanized USB sticks are shipped with the following 2 servers below.
What are the best practices if the USB ports can't be disabled?    Physically block the ports,
use specific encrypted USB thumbdrives that doesn't require drivers (saw one such EE link)
or ??  Kindly provide risk assessments & any other mitigations.

Below is the response from the vendor:

For HMC Servers :
For HMC server (7042-CR6), it's likely that the HMC server's BIOS does not have the option to disable the USB ports.

For P750 Servers :
With reference to the P750 model server (8408-E8D), there are a total of 4 x USB ports, which are integrated with the different hardware components (cards & control panel) of the server.   Below are the details:


1. Control Panel                        
-- 1 x USB port integrated. No option to disable as it's build in together with the control panel.

2. Service Processor Card        
-- 1 x USB port integrated. This USB port is used for server firmware upgrade purpose for server that are not managed by any HMC. Thus it's build in together with service processor and no option to disable.

3. Integrated Multifunction Card (an integrated card that is install in the System CEC that provides two USB ports, one serial port, and four ethernet connectors)
-- 2 x USB ports integrated. This card is not assigned to any of the partition's profile, thus it's not recognized as part of the partition's hardware config. As such, it is not …

Route to specified location not found.              
An error occurred during the SAVRSTLIB operation.  

spelling is correct.  If telnet works should savrstlib work?

I have set up QNTC on my IBM i (AS400) and am able to see our network document server ("SERVER-A").  We have set up a second server ("SERVER-B").  

I can see SERVER-A and SERVER-B from QNTC (WRKLNK), but when i try to drill down, i can't see any folders on SERVER-B. I get a message "Error exchanging security information".  My userid and password are the same on both machines, all uppercase on both.  I can see everything on SERVER-A just fine, i can write to it, copy files, delete files, etc.

In Windows explorer i can create a mapped driver to SERVER-A and see everything below it, and I can create a mapped drive to SERVER-B and see everything, move, copy, delete, etc.

Hi,

Can we have CDC data mirroring between 2 different version servers.
Example a table is in V5R3 and we create the same table in V7R2 and we would like to have the data replicated from V5R3 to V7R2.

Is this possible. Do you see any issues.
