Installing the CA Plex Dispatcher

See the following steps for installing the CA Plex IBM i components / dispatcher.

See the CA Plex Getting started PDF. Replace 710 with your version of CA Plex

 

Chapter 6 details what is supplied on the CD for your System I and how to install them.

 

For most purposes, Just installing the PLEX710 library is sufficient.

 

Transfer the Product Libraries from CD to System i

Before restoring the CA Plex System i product libraries, you must first transfer the files from the CD to your System i. These instructions assume you have TCP/IP installed, configured, and active on your System i, otherwise, you cannot continue. Contact your System i System Administrator about installing TCP/IP.

To transfer System i (binary) files from the CD to your System i

  1. Get the IP address (for example, nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn), or the symbolic name (myas400.mycompany.com), of your destination System i from your System i System Administrator.
  2. Log on to your PC.
  3. Insert the CA Plex CD into an accessible CD-ROM drive.
  4. Open a command line window on your PC.
  5. Change drives to the location of your CD-ROM drive.
  6. Type cd as400libs, and press Enter.
  7. Type ftp, and press Enter.

 

This starts an FTP session.

  1. Type open nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn (nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is your System i TCP/IP address—you can substitute the symbolic name for the IP address), and press Enter.

 

You are successfully connected if you are prompted for your user profile.

Note: If the session is idle for more than five minutes after you have connected, then the system automatically closes the connection. To restart the session, you must start the procedure over at Step 7.

  1. Type your System i user profile at the prompt, and press Enter.
  2. Type your System i password at the prompt, and press Enter.

 

Note: The cursor does not move when you are entering the password.

The system replies that your user profile is logged on.

  1. Type quote site namefmt 1, and press Enter.

 

Note: There must be a blank space between namefmt and 1.

The system replies that the user is now using naming format 1.

Note: You must specify 1 as the naming format.

  1. Type bin, and press Enter to set the binary format.
  2. Type cd qgpl.lib, and press Enter.

 

Note: You can specify another existing library in place of QGPL; the .lib extension is required.

The system replies that the current library is changed to QGPL

 

 

  1. Enter put plex710.savf, and press Enter. The time to transfer the file varies depending on your network speed.

Note: The .savf extension is required.

The system replies that the file transfer is completed successfully.

  1. Repeat Step 14 for ytutorial.savf, ytutrefer.savf, and appintobj.savf.
  2. Enter quit, and press Enter.

 

This stops your FTP session.

  1. Exit the command line session.

 

You can now restore the *SAVF files

 

Restore the Product Libraries from Save Files (*SAVF)

To install the CA Plex for System i client/server or CA Plex for System i 5250 components from save files

  1. Log on as QSECOFR or with QSECOFR equivalent authority.
  2. If you are upgrading an existing release of CA Plex, first clear the product libraries by entering the following command strings:

 

CLRLIB LIB(PLEX710) CLRLIB LIB(YTUTORIAL) CLRLIB LIB(YTUTREFER) CLRLIB LIB(APPINTOBJ)

  1. Restore the CA Plex product library by entering the following:

 

RSTLIB SAVLIB(PLEX710) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF (QGPL/PLEX710) FRCOBJCVN(*YES *RQD)

  1. Restore the Tutorial library by entering the following:

 

RSTLIB SAVLIB(YTUTORIAL) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/YTUTORIAL)

  1. Restore the Tutorial library by entering the following:

 

RSTLIB SAVLIB(YTUTREFER) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/YTUTREFER)

  1. Restore the Application Integrator library by entering the following:

 

RSTLIB SAVLIB(APPINTOBJ) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/APPINTOBJ)

  1. Add PLEX710 to the top of your library list.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The instructions go into detail about how to start the dispatcher.

 

The quick way to run the dispatcher is to submit a job as QSECOFR that calls

 

CALL PGM(PLEX710/YOBSYTCPDP) PARM(7100)

 

The Dispatcher Job User requirements is detailed below.

 

 

User Authority Requirements

It is not necessary to set the USER parameter to QSECOFR, but the user parameter you supply must have the following authorities:

■ *USE authority for objects QSYS/QSYGETPH and QSYS/QSYRLSPH.

■ *ALLOBJ authority is not required, however, the connecting client user profile must provide *USE authority and *OBJMGT (Object Management) to the user profile that started the Dispatcher. This requirement is necessary because the user profile that started the Dispatcher is then allowed to validate the connecting client user's i5/OS user profile and password.

■ *SECADM authority is not required, however, the connecting client user profile will not be allowed to change its own expired password unless the user profile that started the Dispatcher has *SECADM authority. If you prefer to run the Dispatcher without *SECADM authority then you must provide alternative mechanisms for your end users to change their passwords. For more information, see Managing Passwords with System i TCP/IP Connections in the online help.

 

Note: If the connecting client user profile is the same user profile that started the Dispatcher, it does not require *SECADM authority for resetting its own expired password.
