Internet Install Instructions

Note: If you prefer installing the software from a 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.

Note: During installation processing, a new user profile named ISECMAP will be created on your system with *SECOFR class attributes. The profile will be created with no password and in *DISABLED state for security reasons. Do not delete this profile.

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

To install iSecMap on your system from the iSecMap_CD_Image_202.iso file you downloaded, please follow these exact instructions. Please note that these instructions can be used whether you are installing iSecMap for the very first time or if you are upgrading an existing iSecMap 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 or another profile that has *SECOFR class. Make sure that your session is the only one that is signed on for the profile used 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 iSecMap installation, make sure that you end all iSecMap processes, especially the Security Monitor. You can use option #3 from the MONITOR menu to check for activity. Option #2 from that same menu will end monitor if it is active. Also, make sure that no iSecMap 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 iSecMap_CD_Image_202.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 file 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 iSecMap, you will need to make sure that the current iSecMap 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. From the command line, run the following commands:


    This will reset the image catalog for future use. You can also remove any files left in the /kiscocd folder on your system.

  15. If you have just installed iSecMap as an upgrade, go to the INSTALL menu in library ISECLIB 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 iSecMap, 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 iSecMap, 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.
