  • 1. Service tools question
    I just upgraded a model 170 from V4R5 to V5R2. Now that I am in the V5 series of operating systems I cannot log in to service tools, because of the new seurity on it. Qsecofr could not log in (because of expired password on STRSST), I even tried CHGDSTPWD *DEFAULT. The message I kept getting is that service tools will not let me change my own users password. I am stuck in having to bring up DST thru a manual ipl or is there another way I can change the STRSST to allow me in? Tom Hauber
  • 2. SAN Storage Systems and iSeries
    Can someone enumerate which SAN storage systems work well for primary disk storage (including boot volumes) for iSeries AS400? EMC is saying that this only works with their latest generation equipment, which seems strange given that users here have been posting that they use fibre storage on EMC Symmetrix from iSeries. I would ideally like to identify storage systems that work well on fibre from iSeries that are available surplus and cheap, with good vendor options for purchasing maintenance contracts. We have extremely small amounts of storage to handle across five iSeries boxes, and the performance requirements could be handled easily by a system with as few as 20 physical disks that were 36GB or larger. -- Will

  • 5. Connecting AS/400s
    For many years, in order to set up a passthru scenario, I have created a line description, an APPC controller and an APPC device, all with APPN(*NO). - like IBM Software Technical Document 12313052. This has always worked - eventually - until now, when a Model 400 with a 7857-017 modem, which worked perfectly in my office, steadfastly refuses to connect at the client. They are using their own modem, but that is also a 7857-017 and all the set-up screens match my own. Now we come to the bit that is different. Option 20 on the SETUP menu (Option 11 from menu ASSIST) gives options for creating remote hardware - but these are created with APPN(*YES) Does this represent a change of heart on IBM's part or have I merely inherited someone's unorthodox practices? One of the earliest errors was CPA5704 Controller ctrld on line lind not contacted. Link problem .... Frames that are being sent by the local system are not reaching the remote system, or the response from the remote system is not reaching the local system. This could be caused by electrical interference on the network or the FRAMERTY parameter is set for data service operation while the line is using a voice grade line. As we are using the PSTN then that is probably true and changing the FRAMERTY parameter produced CPA5902. Any suggestions would be most welcome as I am running out of ideas. Peter Kinsman

FTP from Unix to AS400 to EDI Server

Postby k_morland » Wed, 17 Dec 2003 02:01:19 GMT

I have been working on an FTP issue that is driving me nuts.  And of
course it is one that is out of the ordinary.

A client sends us a file to the ISeries that is in a Data Stream which
uses the IFS.  I then send it down to our EDI server where they are
supposed to edit it.  (I just work here).  They then send me the
results which I forward back to the client.  The problem is that when
I send it binary, it adds low values to the end of the file which both
Aetna and our EDI group can't handle.  If I send it ASCII then  I have
a limit of 32,766 bytes.  I've tried using the TRIM command with no

namefmt 1
put /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr testfile

This example gives me the low values are spaces at the end.  Any help
would be appreciated.

If the file starts in the IFS, then why do you bring it back into the
library file system?  Files in the library file system have fixed
lengths, and that is probably the source of your problem.

(BTW, a similar questions/answer was posted earlier).

Actually, I am not bringing it back into the library file system.  On
this command I am trying to FTP the file from the IFS on the AS400
down to our server.

This is the part that confuses me:

put /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr testfile

This is not a file in the IFS, this is a file in the 'traditional'
library file system.  It would have a fixed record length.

you could try issuing a
in FTP before PUTting the file (treats as stream instead of records)
might help (always trims tailing blanks from records)

Technically, You're NOT ftp'ing the file from the IFS...

The file /qsys.lib/kwmlib.lib/testfile.file/testmbr.mbr on your iSeries
system is the file named TESTFILE that has a member named TESTMBR in library
KWMLIB.  The long name is simply the way to access this file in the library
file system via the IFS file system.

As Scott pointed out, this file should have fixed length records.

You can view the raw data in TESTFILE from a green screen (5250 emulation
session) using the command:


Once you are viewing the data on the "Display Physical File Member" screen,
press F10, then F11.

This will show the data in the file on three lines:
1) The first line shows the data in character (text) representation
2) The next line shows the first hexadecimal character of the data in hex
3) The next line shows the second hexadecimal character of the data in hex

1.AS400 FTP to FTP Server Write problem

I have an FTP site on our W2K server (SP4) that I FTP files to from our
AS400. To do this I need write authority, which is OK, but users
accessing this site from a browser can upload/create anything on this
folder. Is there a way in Internet Information Services, or the folder
itself to stop users from writing to this folder yet still give me
rights to write to it? Permissions on the folder, or on IIS doesn't
seem to check the write privilages.
Anyone know how I can accomplish this?
