Configuring PGMs on the iSeries host

Before enabling monitoring of of ASP, Network Interface, Message Queue, History Log, Scheduled Jobs, Job Queue, and Network Connection application class, ensure that these binaries are configured on the remote iSeries host.

To configure the iSeries binaries on the remote host:

  1. Log in to the iSeries system. 
  2. Delete the BMC_TSIM library that exists due to earlier installations of the KM by using the following command:
    DLTLIB BMC_TSIM


  3. Create the BMC_TSIM library on the iSeries system by using the following command:

    CRTLIB BMC_TSIM

  4. Create SAVF_4220 save file under the BMC_TSIM library using the following command:
    CRTSAVF FILE(BMC_TSIM/SAVF_4220) TEXT('Contains BMC PGMs to be called remotely')

  5. Copy the SAVF_4220 save file from <PATROL_HOME>/akn directory to the iSeries system in the BMC_TSIM library by using the FTP utility in binary mode as follows:
    1. Open command prompt and navigate to the <PATROL_HOME>/akn directory. 
    2. Enter ftp <iSeries hostname> command where <iSeries hostname> is the name of your iSeries system.
    3. Connect to the iSeries system by providing credentials
    4. Change mode to binary by using the bi command
    5. Navigate to BMC_TSIM library on iSeries system using the following command:
      cd BMC_TSIM

    6. Copy the SAVF_4220 save file using the following command:
      mput SAVF_4220

    7. End the FTP session by entering the following command:
      bye


  6. Copy the BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh file from <PATROL_HOME>/akn directory to the iSeries system in the /tmp directory by using the FTP utility in ASCII mode as follows:

    1. Open command prompt and navigate to the <PATROL_HOME>/akn directory. 
    2. Enter ftp <iSeries hostname> command where <iSeries hostname> is the name of your iSeries system.
    3. Connect to the iSeries system by providing credentials
    4. Navigate to /tmp directory on iSeries system using the following command:
      cd /tmp

    5. Copy the BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh file using the following command:
      mput BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh

    6. End the FTP session by entering the following command:
      bye

  7. Login to the iSeries system.

  8. Open QSHELL on iSeries system using qsh command.

  9. On qsh prompt, navigate to the IFS path /tmp where the BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh script is copied. Use the following command:
    cd /tmp


  10. Ensure that /usr/bin path is set in the environment variable PATH.

    1. To verify, enter the following command:
      echo $PATH

    2. If the environment variable PATH is not set, use the following command to set the PATH:
      export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin


  11. Execute the BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh script. The script can be used as follows:
    ./BMC_TSIM_4_2_20.qsh


  12. The configuration is complete when the script execution ends.

  13. Use the DSPLIB  BMC_TSIM command to verify if the the PGM files and MSGQ files are restored and created on the remote iSeries host. 
    The following PGM files are restored when you execute the script:

    1.  ASPCOLLECT
    2.  JBQCOLLECT
    3.  MSQCOLLECT
    4.  NETCONCOLL
    5.  NETSTATCOL
    6.  QHTCOLLECT
    7.  SCHCOLLECT 

The following MSGQ files are created when you execute the script:

    1. ASP_DATA 
    2. CONN_DATA
    3. INTF_DATA
    4. JOBQ_DATA
    5. MSGQ_DATA
    6. QHST_DATA
    7. SCHD_DATA
