Sequel V11M02 now supports multiple host instances. As part of this support Sequel creates a new IFS directory structure based on the specified product installation library (prod_lib_name/swi/repository).

This change will affect previous version 11 installations—only if Sequel was installed into a library other than SEQUEL—in the following ways:

  • Previous version 11 installations will have a different (old) IFS directory structure, and the install creates a different (new) structure.
  • Objects may have been created or migrated in this directory, or the directory may have been customized. In this case these items will need to be preserved and moved to the new directory.
  • The current HTTP instance will have directives that reference the old IFS structure. This needs to be deleted so the install can recreate it and rebuild the directive for the new IFS structure.

Follow the step below to ensure you preserve and replicate your objects to the new IFS structure:

Steps

  1. Issue the following command to ensure the Apache HTTP Administrator server is started:
    STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)

  2. Using a browser, access the HTTP Administrator with a URL like so:
    http://system_i_name:2001/HTTPAdmin

  3. In the Administrator select Manage\All Servers.

  4. Select current HTTP instance (SEQUELWI) and press the Stop button at the bottom of the screen. "
     
  5. When the instance has ended, press the Delete button. You are finished with the Apache Administrator and can close the browser.  
     
  6. Issue the following commands (at a command line) to ensure everything was cleaned up:
    RMVDIR DIR(‘/www/SEQUELWI’) SUBTREE(*ALL)   
    RMVM QUSRSYS/QATMHINSTC SEQUELWI

  7. Install the Sequel 11.2 host and Viewpoint client software according to the instructions included with the software. The install process will create new Sequel IFS directory structure.
     
  8. Copy objects from the old IFS structure (/sequel/swi/repository/ to the new structure (/prod_lib_name/swi/repository/) using iSeries Navigator or Windows Explorer.
