Upgrading to Compliance Monitor 3
Ensure the following servers are available and running prior to upgrading:

If FTP is not available, you must install the product manually. See Manual Installation of Powertech IBM i Products.
Do the following to upgrade to Compliance Monitor 3:
- Download the Compliance Monitor 3 Installer (most recent). For previous versions, use Compliance Monitor V5R4 Cutoff (v3.14) and Compliance Monitor V6R1 Cutoff (v3.26).
- Double-click the .exe file to start the Installation Wizard. When prompted, enter the name of the system on which you want to upgrade Compliance Monitor, a user profile, and password. Note: Make sure the user profile is a member of the user class *SECOFR and has at least the following special authorities: *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, *JOBCTL, *IOSYSCFG, and *AUDIT. The user profile should have Limit capabilities set to *NO.
- Specify how you want to load Compliance Monitor on your system, from the following:
- The Compliance Monitor Consolidator and Endpoint upgrade processes run pre-checker programs that evaluate your system to verify that the upgrade can proceed, including that you have the proper authority, that the operating system and PTFs are at the correct level, and that the default port (3035) used by Compliance Monitor is available. If the pre-checkers find any problems, you should review the message logs (CM2INSTP for the Consolidator, PCMINSTP for the Endpoint) for more information.
- When the upgrade completes on the system, you can view the install log or select “Restart and load another system” to upgrade another system. Follow the instructions to upgrade the Endpoint program on your Endpoint systems.
- When you are finished upgrading all systems, click Finish to remove the Wizard from your PC.
The Compliance Monitor Installer displays the job log name, user, and job log number. Use the WRKSPLF command to display the job log for complete information on the Compliance Monitor upgrade.
