Hello Team,

Request you to answer the below questions

1.) What is Save while act in AS400 and How does it works?
2.) TEST LPAR was unfortunately shutdown and need to restart the LPAR with Restricted state? Does it possible ? i think we should remove the QSTRUPPGM value to *NONE and then restart the system to bring it in Restricted state , but that is not possible when LPAR is in inactive state
3.)what do you mean by Audits in MIMIX
4.) How do we check the Boot Load is TAP01 or not before initiating the IPL : Manual, D for recovery the system from bull backup tape
5.) on what scenarios we use End batch restricted state option in DST?

I have a number of database files on our IBM i that I need to update the authority on for our developers to *USE. Unfortunately these files are pretty much in use 100% of the time.

Is there ANY way that authority can be updated on a file without having an exclusive lock on the file? I am not aware of any - but thought I would check with others to make sure I wasn't overlooking something.

Thanks in advance

We have a AS400 server which is running v5r4 of the OS. It has an integrated windows 2003 server. To get antivirus installed in the windows 2003 server we had to make some registry modifications. The original registry settings were backed up. When the windows 2003 starts it blue screens and says the windows session manager cant start. We have already tried "Last know good configuration" and "Safe mode". Both of these yield the same blue screen. If we could only boot from a CD and run windows restore or some utility to re import the registry settings. But there seems to be no way to tell the AS400 to boot the integrated server from the CD instead of the hard drive.  Please HELP.

We have a AS400 server which is running v5r4 of the OS. It has an integrated windows 2003 server. The windows server install got corrupted and is down.  We would like to pull the data of of the windows install without the windows 2003 server running.  Is it possible? Since the disks are integrated between the AS400 and windows I thought it might be possible since the Windows drive are showing up as AS400 virtual disks with the integrated server being off.

We are FINALLY looking to retire our 'Office Vision' email. I'm looking for a way to dump the email detail for every email we currently have. The intent would be parse this information into a database for historical purposes.  

I've used QRYDST to dump header information, but I need all details.

Can anyone provide direction on this? Is it possible?

Thank You!!!

iSeries is successfully sending out emails, but spam filtering rules prevent the receipt of mail issued from the iSeries bearing the same domain name.  The only solution would be to route the outbound mail through the local exchange server.
What settings need to be altered on the iSeries to point the outbound SMTP traffic to the local Exchange Server?

Our ERP system runs on an IBM AS/400 (or whatever IBM is calling it currently), accessed via TN5250. With our previous 400 users could choose to alternatively use JDE WorldVision to connect to the 400. WorldVision scraped the screen and provided a point and click interface for the users. A lot of people chose to use it.

However, with our latest upgrade WorldVision is no longer supported. Does anyone know of a comparable product? We looked at zScope Express, but it frequently made the wrong things into clickable buttons.

Hi

I have received a .SAVF file (as400 / iSeries) and I have no knowledge of how the .SAVF and the packages inside it work.

I have come across a programme called jSAVF.jar which can open the .SAVF file but there are lots of packages inside it which has UTLILECLP or UTLILESQL or UTLSRCDBF and I can extract the individual files from those packages i.e. UTLSRCDBF.<name>.txt has some code.

I need to convert that into standard pl/sql code if possible - I can see some sql code but there are other parameters and parsing happening which I am not sure what it does etc.

My issue is two fold, why can I PING an IP of a device that isn't on the network and I can't print.

I have a Datamax label printer that I just created a device description for and assigned it a new IP address, this printer is plugged into a switch, the switch is plugged into a firewall that goes through to another firewall before it gets to the IBM i.  We have two partitions, PROD and TEST.  I copied the device description and out queue from TEST to PROD to ensure they were identical on both sides.  

This printer works perfectly in TEST.  When plugged into the network I am able to print to it, I can PING its IP, TELNET to it and the trace route returns the three expected entries.  When I vary off the device and unplug it from the network I cannot PING it from the IBM i nor the network, I cannot TELNET to it and the trace route only returns the two expected entries.  All as it should be.  

However, in PROD I am unable to print to the device.  When I release a spool file it goes right to RDY status and the writer gets error CPD337F Error CPD337F.  I have verified that the port and IP are correct, I have verified that the remote device is not busy, I have verified that the printer is on line.  I can PING its IP from both the IBM i and the network but I cannot TELNET to it and the trace route returns only two of the three expected entries.  When I vary off the device and unplug it from the network I can still PING it from the IBM i but not from the network, I …

Hi
Looking for a solution to convert mass output on a IBM Mainframe z/OS - 300 Mio. Documents / Year, average 2 pages per document to PDF.
Most importantly with minimal increasing the resulting PDF output compared to AFP
A am aware that the amount of size increase depends on the AFP input. But is there a rule of thumb about the size ratio between AFP and PDF.
And what is the best solution to generate best quality PDF/A with minimal size.

Many thanks

I have a CL program that adds a library (WHMSDTA) to the user library list. The command is ADDLIBLE LIB(WHMSDTA)
at the end of the job the library is removed from the user library list.

However if the job ends abnormally, and the user restarts the job, the library WHMSDTA is still on the library list and the user must sign off the log in again in order to rerun the program.

how can I check if the library WHMSDTA already exists on the user library list so that I can condition execution of the ADDLIBLE command?

Hi,

I have an application still running old 36 programs. (on the list to converted, but has not made it to the top of the list)
Can anyone tell me how to get the wait record no max to function in a 36 proc on the  '// file' statement? (like the *nomax on the ovrdbf)  
 
OVRDBF     FILE(CUSTDT) TOFILE(&FILE8) WAITRCD(*NOMAX)
// FILE NAME-CUSTDT,DISP-SHR,LABEL-?L'1,1'?CCUSTDT,*******?  - I want the program to wait forever for the record instead of timing out


Thank You,

I am attempting to receive data from a data quue that is attached to an outq.

From there I take some of that information and use QUSLSPL API to get the List of Spool files that meet the criteria of what was found from the RCVDTAQ API.

I then create the pointer using QUSPTRUS API  to a user space that I created previous and attempt to run the spool list.  when I do this is not working as expected.  Basically the follow IF fails on NUMBER-LIST-ENTRIES being equal to 0.

           IF (INFORMATION-STATUS OF QUS-GENERIC-HEADER-0100 = "C"  (14)
              OR INFORMATION-STATUS OF QUS-GENERIC-HEADER-0100 = "P")
              AND NUMBER-LIST-ENTRIES OF QUS-GENERIC-HEADER-0100 > 0  (16)
      *
      * address current list entry
      *

              SET ADDRESS OF STRING-SPACE TO SPCPTR,

              SET ADDRESS OF QUS-SPLF0200 TO
                  ADDRESS OF STRING-SPACE((OFFSET-LIST-DATA
                  OF QUS-GENERIC-HEADER-0100 + 1):1),     (18)
      *
      * and process all of the entries
      *
              PERFORM PROCES
                 NUMBER-LIST-ENTRIES OF QUS-GENERIC-HEADER-0100 TIMES,  (20)

           ELSE
              DISPLAY "List data not valid.  **** THIS IS WHAT EXECUTES!!!!"

I have referenced this link with a COBOL example.
