IDK if I've just been working on so much low level stuff lately but I think I am going to attach certain data to every new ticket I open.
First, make sure you have a copy of QMGTOOLS on your system, and, that it is current.
Verify currency again
13. Check IBM for updated QMGTOOLS
I had a system so far behind I had to run that twice. Once to upgrade it from V7R2 to V7R4 and again to the current V7R4 version.
Collect data. This collects PTF listings, system status, etc. Often the defaults are good. Today I also took the vlog option.
1. System Snapshot
When it is done you will get a message like
Zip file created: /tmp/GDIHQ_SYSSNAP0004.zip
Use that file name in
10. FTP data to IBM
That may generate a message like
Job IBMSDDUU submitted. Check logfile /tmp/ibmsdduu/ibmsdduu.log
My machine may differ. I have a hot fix to qmgtools because of an earlier thread on this list where qmgtools was screwing up IP addresses on audit records. Their workaround was to submit it to batch. To see the status of that I used
When it is done you'll see the following at the bottom:
Transfer is complete
transfered : 9,421,651 bytes
speed : 2617.1 kBytes/sec
all transfers are complete - exit program
************End of Data********************
That's probably what this option is for though
11. View FTP to IBM statuses
Remember PMR numbers are a thing of the past. The old xxxxx.yyy.zzz. Now it's all case numbers TS#########. I swear they use 9 digits so that TS######### adds up to 11 characters and you can't name work libraries the same as the case. Oh well, for now the first two digits are zeros and I just drop the first zero.
