Before You Upgrade

  1. Confirm that the OS/400 is version V5R1 or above.
  2. Make sure that:
    1. FTP is running on the iSeries LPAR where you are installing RJSPCLPDF.
    2. Your account has the required system credentials.
      Note: If your account does not have the required system credentials, use QSECOFR or another account with *ALLOBJ special authority.
  3. On the FTP server, make sure that NAMEFMT is set to 1, not 0.
    Note: NAMEFMT is set to 1 on most FTP servers.
  4. If you are using FTP exit programs, create an exception or temporarily disable them during this installation.
  5. No additional license is required when performing an upgrade, assuming the serial, model, and LPAR numbers are the same. If you are upgrading your system as well, please apply for a temporary license.
  6. On a Windows system on the same network as the iSeries, download the zipped RJSPCLPDF save file.
  7. Unzip RJSPCLPDF_6.00.00.ZIP to C:\.
  8. Run CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/RJSPCLPDF) to create a temporary file on the iSeries to upload RJSPCLPDF.LIB to.

Back up your existing library

  1. Option 1
    Run the following command on an iSeries command line as a security officer. This works well, assuming there are not a lot of object locks on the RJSPCLPDF library. RNMOBJ OBJ(QSYS/RJSPCLPDF) OBJTYPE(*LIB) NEWOBJ(RJSPCLBAK)
  2. Option 2
    Run the following command on an iSeries command line as a security officer. This works well, even if there are locks on the RJSPCLPDF library; these locks will be forcefully removed when the library is cleared. CPYLIB FROMLIB(RJSPCLPDF) TOLIB(RJSPCLBAK)

Install the new library version

  1. Log in to the iSeries LPAR you are installing RJSPCLPDF on:
    1. Bring up a command line:
      1. On older versions of Windows, click Start > Run, type cmd, and click OK.
      2. On newer versions of Windows, click Start, type cmd, and press Enter.
        A Windows Console window opens.
    2. Type ftp, where is the IP address of the iSeries LPAR you are installing RJSPCLPDF on.
    3. Type the user name and password of the account you chose in Before You Install 3.2.
      Note: If you cannot log in, most likely either your account has a security restriction on the iSeries or you are using FTP exit programs. In both cases, contact your iSeries administrator to rectify.
  2. Run the following commands:


    quote site namefmt 1

  3. Use the quit command to exit FTP and close the Windows Console window.
    Note: You can now delete RJSPCLPDF.LIB from C:\.
  4. Restore RJSPCLPDF from the uploaded file to its own library:
    1. Log in to the iSeries.
    2. On a command line, run the following command:


Copy settings from old library to new

  • Copy the 50-character alphanumeric value from RJSPCLBAK/PCLPDF400 to RJSPCLPDF/PCLPDF400.
