Roger- Effective with V3R2M0, you need to do the custom CA/400 install to install all the OpsNav pieces. Or, after the install, use CA/400's Selective Setup to add the necessary OpsNav stuff. In the Express client, the NetServer stuff is under OpsNav's Network stuff--I think it's that way also in the GA clients. Doesn't matter, on your desktop, install all the OpsNav stuff. There are OS/400 APIs for working with OpsNav, but they don't have a command interface over them. Amazes me that NEWS or MC (you listening, Shannon!) hasn't picked up the ball on this and published a cool green NetServer configurator. For more info on the APIs and NetServer in general, see www.as400.ibm.com/netserver. Be prepared to be underwhelmed, NetServer sets a new high water mark in woefully inadequate documentation. (An Express redbook is due soon to fill in some of the gaps--watch www.redbooks.ibm.com). The bottom for AS/400 shops is, if you're using TCP/IP, you HAVE to have one OpsNav client available to do some AS/400 config and administration (DHCP, PPP and DNS come to mind). And, let's not start the monthly rant, it doesn't matter if anyone likes it or not! OpsNav is very important and you'd better get used to it. OpsNav is here, it works ok (yes, it has more warts and hairs than the wicked witch of the west, but in spite of its occasional croak, it does work), you need it, get over it! rp +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
