Internet Install Instructions

Important: If you have previously installed other Kisco software or an earlier version of i2Pass, check the /kiscocd folder in the IFS and make sure that it is empty before you get started.

To install i2Pass on your system from the i2Pass_CD_Image_303.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 i2Pass for the very first time or if you are upgrading an existing i2Pass installation.

  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:
    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 i2Pass installation, you should choose a time when there are no registered users actively logging on to the product. Attempts by registered users to log on during the upgrade install may result in a failed logon.

  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:
  6. Run the following command to create an image catalog:
  7. From your PC, create a folder on your desktop named TEMP and move the i2Pass_CD_Image_303.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:

    Note: If you have installed other Kisco software or previous versions of i2Pass, you will need to make sure that the current i2Pass 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:
  11. From the command line, run the following command to ready the virtual optical device:
  12. From the command line, run the following command to load the image catalog:
  13. From the command line, run the install process with the following command:

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

  14. If you have just installed i2Pass as an upgrade, go to the INSTALL menu in library I2PLIB and run option #2. 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 i2Pass, you may purchase a permanent installation copy by contacting Kisco and arranging payment.

If you have just completed installing an upgrade of your already active license for i2Pass, 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.
