Thanks to you and Rob for the responses. I only got C/A 7.1 because we have
a couple of Windows 7 PC's, but I installed it on my PC first to be sure it
would run (my bosses have the Win7 PCs; didn't want them to be disillusioned
since it was hard enough getting them to actually access the system). I
guess I'll have to uninstall 7.1 on my PC and re-install 5.4 and the fix
pack. The bosses only use the PC5250 functions; I use the whole gamut of
iNav functions.

I believe that from 6.1 the Navigator is not compatible completely with
early releases - that is why I keep using the V5R4 iSeries Access for my
daily work.

Maybe put up a Windows VM with the earlier version - or the most recent
- of Navigator for different uses.

This link - - has
info on which versions to connect with in the several versions of Access.

PC5250 Communications is working, but most function of System i Navigator
not. For some functions I am getting "An unexpected error occurred.
the System i Access java trace log for additional information. General
Security error." For others the error varies but, in general, is
along the lines of "Unable to retrieve list of printers from system DTO.
General Security error."

Even some of the functions that do not throw an error do not seem to work.
For example, Work Management's Memory Pools bring up empty lists, as does
the Active Jobs.

I started Diagnostic Tools, but the IBM i Access for Windows.Service.Trace
Files are empty. The History Log is empty.

Is System i Navigator not compatible with V5R1, or is there something else
need to do? I verified the connection.
