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,

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!!!!"

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 !!

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!

Here is the DEVD for the printer:

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.

3) How can I unit test my program or how to prepare dummy data in ICF file.

It would be great help.

We have a remote system running V5R4 and our current server is running v7r2.  

We have a remote location entry setup for the old machine it works with TELNET.  I can access using 'TELNET OLDSYS' but I'm not able to do as savrstlib to 'OLDSYS'  error:

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

spelling is correct.  If telnet works should savrstlib work?

Thank You!!!!

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.

Thanks

Hi,

In my AS400 system, there are around 20 applications which runs and occupies around 90% of CPU.

I would like to Know the process to find how much a particular application is putting load on that CPU.

Example, app1 takes 20% of CPU out of 20 applications.

Can somebody shed some lights on how to find this.

Thanks
Chaitu
