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.

  1. Stop all monitors and watches using the ENDIEM command.
  2. After all monitors and watches have stopped and the IEMONITOR subsystem has been stopped, run option 7 on the MASTER menu.
  3. For each JW record listed, put a 5 next to it and take a printkey listing for future reference. Then, use option 4 to delete the record.
  4. When all JW records have been removed, exit the display and restart your monitors and watches using the STRIEM command.
  5. Using the print key listing(s), using option 7 on the WATCH menu to restart the Job Watches that were deleted.

When all Job Watches have been restarted, then you are done with this special update.

All Upgrades:

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 #1 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:

WRKLNK OBJ('/kiscocd/*')

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.

  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 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:
  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 iEventMonitor_CD_Image_710.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 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:
