Re: TCP/IP starts twice in V7



fixed

Rob:

All true, but that does not explain why TCP is starting twice as submitted by the IBM procedures. That is still causing some interesting problems.

What's new for IBM i 7.1
Save menu changes

When using some of the save menu options, TCP/IP is ended before ending
the subsystems. For more information see topic GO SAVE command menu
options.

ENDTCPSVR
ENDHOSTSVR
DLYJOB JOB(300)
ENDTCP
DLYJOB JOB(300)
ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) OPTION(*IMMED)

IBM's not updated the help on GO SAVE 21 to show this.

No, ENDSBS *ALL does NOT end all of tcp. Parts will keep running if you
don't end tcp first. This ain't your father's 400 - stuff changes.
"System ended to restricted condition" is misleading.

Go here

and select the telnet fixes also. Of course, be current on all cumes and
groups also.

This is the issue with V7R1. After upgrading from V5R4 to V7R1, we also faced the same problem. I would suggest you to try this. ENDTCP before ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED If the Telnet server is not ended prior to the ending of subsystems, it might not automatically restart. To circumvent this and other potential problems it is suggested that prior to ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED these steps be taken: 1. ENDTCPSVR *ALL 2. ENDHOSTSVR *ALL 3. Allow the commands to complete and the servers to end. If issuing the commands from a CL program include a DLYJOB DLY(300) to allow the commands to complete. 4. ENDTCP Also, there are PTF's recommended by IBM. Thanks On Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 3:38 PM, Paul Nelson <nelsonp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
