Internet Install Instructions
Note: If you prefer installing the software from a hard CD, most CD burner software will
allow you to burn a CD from the downloaded ISO CD image file. If you want to take this route,
refer to the install instructions in the user's guide.
To install iEventMonitor on your system from the iEventMonitor_CD_Image_301.iso file you received via E-mail or
Website Download, please follow these exact instructions. Please note that these instructions
can be used whether you are installing iEventMonitor for the very first time or if you are upgrading
an existing iEventMonitor installation.
If you are upgrading iEventMonitor from any level of Release 1 to Release 2 or higher, you should be aware that the new
software release includes enhanced security controls over the use of the software. Immediately after installing the
upgrade, go to the INSTALL menu in library IEMLIB and run option #8. This will display the user profiles for users
who are authorized to use the software. If you want to grant access to any user profiles that are not on the list,
take this action now before you resume using the software. Consult the applicable section of the new user's guide
for more details.
Also for customers upgrading from Release 1 to Release 2 or higher, you should be aware that the STRWCHJQ command that
is used to start a Job Queue Watch Task has been changed and now includes a new, required parameter of WNAME. For most
instances, you can just code this with the same value that you are already using for the JOBQ parameter. If you have the
STRWCHJQ command built into an automatic startup CL program, it could fail unless to address this issue.
Note For Customers Upgrading from Release 2
If you had iEventMonitor Release 2.01 or later installed and you are using the Watch Task feature with the Autostart option,
this note applies to you. If you are not using this feature, you can skip the rest of this section.
Release 3 has re-engineered the way that Autostarts work in iEventMonitor. As a result of this, the AUTOSTART parameter
on the STRIEMWAT and ENDIEMWAT commands has been removed. If you implemented these commands in any of your own CL programs,
such as in the QSTRUP program, you will need to update your program to remove the AUTOSTART parameter.
Also, the STRWATCH and ENDWATCH commands have now been removed from the product. They are replaced with the STRIEM and
ENDIEM commands. If you are using the STRWATCH or ENDWATCH commands, replacing it with the STRIEM or ENDIEM commands
should also be done.
iEventMonitor Release 3 can only be used on systems with the IBM i/OS release level of 6.1 or higher
installed. If you are running on an older release, you will not be able to install the new release of iEventMonitor.
During the install processing, a document called "Additional Documentation Topics" will print.
This includes the latest system changes and documentation since the last time the user manual
