CoolSpools PLUS has now been superseded by CoolSpools V6
The procedure described here relates to the earlier CoolSpools PLUS and describes how to install the latest CoolSpools PLUS PTF exit programs before applying a PTF (fix pack) for CoolSpools PLUS.
Next, restore the PTF exit programs to your system.
This method uses FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to transfer the PTF exit programs from your PC to your system i. It is assumed that you have stored the zip file which your downloaded from the Internet on your PC and that you have enabled an FTP link between your PC and your system i.
Commands to be run on the system i are shown in
and those to be run on the PC in
Save or copy the zip file that you downloaded or received into this directory.
is the name of the library you chose to use.
is the name of your system i.
You will be prompted to enter your user id and password. Please ensure that you sign on with a user id that has adequate authority. We recommend that you sign on as the Security Officer QSECOFR.
Issue the following FTP commands within the FTP session:
This command instructs FTP not to carry out any conversion on the data to be sent to the system i.
quote site na 0
This makes sure the system i is using naming format 0 (library naming). This is important if your FTP attributes (CHGFTPA command NAMEFMT parameter) have the initial naming format set to *PATH (IFS path naming) rather than *LIB (library/file.member naming).
is the name of the library in which your created the save file in Step 3. This command makes lib_name your current library on the system i.
is the name of the directory on your PC in which you unzipped the install files earlier. This command makes dir_name your current directory on the PC.
put PTFExitPgm.sav PTFExitPgm
This command transmits the contents of the file PTFExitPgm.sav, which was earlier unzipped from 5CP0001.zip, and stores them in the save file called PTFExitPgm which you created earlier on your system i.
If you see the message (No records in save file) then something has gone wrong during the preceding steps. Try following them again. If you still cannot get this procedure to work, contact ariadne support.
