Vern,

I think that my problem was in fact bad source media. I have re-started the
install from scratch but using different CDs (both lots are IBM originals)
and I certainly am getting a different result. As yet, I don't know whether
it is better but it may well be.

I have just done the first part of the install from scratch. I did notice
that it said during the install progress that about 47 programs had been
installed but about 21 had failed. DOes anyone have any idea that this
means?

The system is running but I have yet to create a line description, etc. to
see if I can ping it.

Many thanks

Be sure to have good installation CDs first - not sure what would make them
bad, but - oh well!

Get the latest CUME, which will include HIPER group and DB2 group.

Get group PTFs for any of the products or features you installed. The
Support page has a group PTFs link on its Fixes page. Put them on after the
CUME, etc.

Oh, when you install a bunch of PTFs, I recommend doing full IPLs, so that
hardware stuff is all run through with the new environment. Just a
precaution - not completely sure if needed, but, you know.

Go to the Recommended Fixes link on the Fixes page and see what you should
get for products or features you installed. These are not in groups, so it
is a little tedious to get the list - order them as individual PTFs.

There is probably a required PTFs page on the WDSC page

http://www.ibm.com/software/ad/wdt400

Yes, there is a "latest PTF information" link there. There are
release-specific lists for various parts of WDSC.

BTW, I've not listed the actual links, just in case people see other stuff
of interest from the main WDSC page - it is the starting point for all
manner of information, including tutorials and all.

Many thanks to everyone for their help.

I have checked the PTFs and can find nothing obviously worng, nothing
that
needs applying, done countless IPLs, etc.

I feel that since V5R3 is a mature release and the problems that I have
seem
so basic, that it must be something to do with my installation, so I am
going to reinstall from scratch, download the PTFs again, etc. Because I
have other things to do, this will take me a little while. Perhaps
unnecessary but it may save me time in the long run. I am going to use a
different source media for OS/400.

To ensure that I apply the correct PTFs, do I just need the cume pack or
should I also download the PTFs for individual products? I did the whole
lot last time. I did not use the PTF cds.

Many thanks

Since you have PTF issues that is really the place to start -
everything
else is slowing you down from fixing the PTF's. Once they are right you
can
try some of the other suggestions if you still need to.

Apologies if you answered some of this already:

If you do a DSPPTF, do you have products with individual PTF's that
show as
applied/installed, action required or loaded ?

If you have any with action required you may be able to get away with
IPL's
again - if you have already done this it would be worth a crack.

Otherwise is you have PTF's showing as loaded you may have loaded and
not
applied the PTF's in which case you need to run the APYPTF command and
the
IPL to apply them.

What process did you use to load and apply the cume package ? And it is
definitely a cume package, not just PTF CD's right ?

Regards
Evan Harris
