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_523.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.
Note For Customers Upgrading from Release 3.09 or earlier
This version of iEventMonitor includes an engineering change to the Job Watch feature (option 7 on the WATCH menu) that may require you to take action Immediately after upgrading to this release of iEventMonitor.
To determine if you need to take action, run option 7 on the MASTER menu and check to see if you have any JW records listed. If there are no such records displayed, then you do not have to take any further action.
If there are JW records shown, then you must do the following steps.
When all Job Watches have been restarted, then you are done with this special update.
If you are upgrading iEventMonitor from an earlier release, make sure that all current tasks in iEventMonitor have been ended. Using the ENDIEM command will shut everything down cleanly. Make sure that no users on your system have any of the iEventMonitor menus active on a terminal session. Run the following command from the command line:
If you see any tasks active that appear to be related to iEventMonitor, use option 4 to end them manually. If you are unsure, send a screenshot of your display to Kisco Information Systems support staff for advice.
Before you start your upgrade, run option #8 on the MASTER menu. If there are any active File Monitors displayed, you must deactivate them before you start your upgrade. After the upgrade is completed successfully, you can reactivate them.
Run the following command from the command line:
If any objects are shown in the /kiscocd folder, they must be removed before you can continue with your ugprade install. If the system will not allow you to delete them from this display, you may have to use the WRKIMGCLG command for the KISCOCAT Image Catalog and unload objects that are showing as loaded before you can delete all the objects. Failure to start with the /kiscocd folder empty could create problems for you during the upgrade.
To install iEventMonitor either for the first time or to install an upgrade, use the following steps.
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.
CRTDEVOPT DEVD(OPTVKISCO) RSRCNAME(*VRT) TYPE(632B)
CRTIMGCLG IMGCLG(KISCOCAT) DIR(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.
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.
VRYCFG CFGOBJ(OPTVKISCO) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)
LODIMGCLG IMGCLG(KISCOCAT) DEV(OPTVKISCO)
This will install the software on your system for your thirty day trial period.
