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_204.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.

Special Considerations:

If you are upgrading iEventMonitor from any level of Release 1 or 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.

Also, be aware that iEventMonitor Release 2 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.


  1. Sign on to your IBM i from a PC that is configured for iSeries Access. You must sign on using the special IBM-supplied user profile QSECOFR. Make sure that your session is the only one that is signed on as QSECOFR during this process.

  2. Check the following system values. They should be set as indicated here. If they are not, note the current settings then change them to these settings:

    QALWOBJRST - *ALL
    QVFYOBJRST - value 3 or lower
    QFRCCVNRST - value 0

    Note: If you have to change any of these system values, make note of the original setting and make sure that you set them back to the original setting immediately following this installation process.

  3. If you are upgrading an existing iEventMonitor installation, make sure that you end all iEventMonitor processes, especially the active monitor functions. Also, make sure that no iEventMonitor menus are active with any display sessions.

  4. Run the following command to create an IFS folder to hold the CD image file:

    MKDIR DIR(kiscocd)

  5. Run the following command to create a virtual optical device:

    CRTDEVOPT DEVD(OPTVKISCO) RSRCNAME(*VRT) TYPE(632B)
    

  6. Run the following command to create an image catalog:

    CRTIMGCLG IMGCLG(KISCOCAT) DIR(kiscocd)

  7. From your PC, create a folder on your desktop named TEMP and move the iEventMonitor_CD_Image_204.iso file into it.

  8. From your desktop, click on the iSeries Navigator. When it opens, all operations here will take place on the right side of the display box. Click on the following sequence of items displayed:
    • Your System i location
    • File Systems (Note: if this does not appear, you will have to install additional iSeries Access functions on your PC to complete this procedure.)
    • Integrated File System
    • root
    • kiscocd
    Now drag and drop the file from the TEMP folder on your PC desktop into the right-hand box of the iSeries Navigator display. This will transfer these files into the folder.

  9. Now go back to the command line and run the following command to load the file into the image catalog:

    ADDIMGCLGE IMGCLG(KISCOCAT)
    FROMFILE('/kiscocd/iEventMonitor_CD_Image_204.iso')

    Note: If you have installed other Kisco software or previous versions of iEventMonitor, you will need to make sure that the current iEventMonitor CD Image is the only one now active on your system. Use the WRKIMGCLG command and check the Image Catalog named KISCOCAT to make sure there is only one entry posted.

  10. From the command line, run the following command to load the image catalog entry:

    LODIMGCLGE IMGCLG(KISCOCAT)

  11. From the command line, run the following command to ready the virtual optical device:

    VRYCFG CFGOBJ(OPTVKISCO) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)

  12. From the command line, run the following command to load the image catalog:

    LODIMGCLG IMGCLG(KISCOCAT) DEV(OPTVKISCO)

  13. From the command line, run the install process with the following command:

    LODRUN DEV(OPTVKISCO)

    This will install the software on your system for your thirty day trial period.

  14. If you have just installed iEventMonitor as an upgrade, go to the INSTALL menu in library FILAUD and run option #3. Check the installation status shown at the center of the screen to make sure that it still shows that the software is permanently installed. If you see any other status, contact Kisco Information Systems as the software will not function correctly until this is corrected.

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 was updated.

When you have completed your evaluation of iEventMonitor, you may purchase a permanent installation copy by contacting us and arranging payment.

If you have just completed installing an upgrade of your already active license for iEventMonitor, please contact Kisco and advise them that you have updated to a new release level. Let us know the specific version that you have just installed so we can keep our records current about your installation.
