Before You Begin

  • If Robot Alert is the only Robot product on the new system (or the first product on the new system), contact Technical Support for more information.
  • Make sure that you have a security code for Robot Alert on the target system. If you don't have one, contact your Regional Sales Manager.
  • If you're using TCP/IP communications, make sure that the SMTP server you use is defined to the target system’s host table or to your DNS server.
  • If you're using Robot Alert with a modem, consider the following items on the target system:
    • Does the phone line require a prefix (such as 9) to access an outside line?
    • Is the resource name different on the target system? If it is, you must delete and recreate the communication jobs on the target system using Robot Alert. To do this use option 2, Maintain Communication Jobs, from the System Setup Menu after you have moved Robot Alert.
    • Is the modem you'll be using on the target system the same type of modem that you're using on the source system? Is it an asynchronous modem?

Backing Up Robot Alert on the Source System

  1. Sign on under a user profile that is a member of the user class *SECOFR and has at least the following authorities: *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, and *JOBCTL.

  2. Place Robot Alert on hold by selecting option 4 from the Robot Alert Control Menu, or by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RBTALRLIB/RBAHLDALR

  3. Make Robot Alert inactive by selecting option 2 from the Control Menu, or by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RBTALRLIB/RBAEND

  4. Enter the following commands to save the Robot Alert library, RBTALRLIB, and RBTSYSLIB to disk:

    CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/RBTALR)

    CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/RBTSYS)

  5. Enter the following commands to save the data to the save files:

    SAVLIB LIB(RBTALRLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/RBTALR)

    SAVLIB LIB(RBTSYSLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/RBTSYS)

Restoring Robot Alert on the Target System

  1. Sign on under a user profile that is a member of the user class *SECOFR and has at least the following authorities: *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, and *JOBCTL.

  2. Verify that RBTADMIN and RBTUSER are valid user profiles on the target system or partition. If these profiles do not exist on the target system or partition, enter the following commands to create them:

    RSTOBJ OBJ(RSL062) SAVLIB(RBTSYSLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/RBTSYS) RSTLIB(QGPL)

    CALL PGM(QGPL/RSL062)

    DLTOBJ OBJ(QGPL/RSL062) TYPE(*PGM)

  3. Enter the following command to restore RBTSYSLIB:

    RSTLIB SAVLIB(RBTSYSLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/RBTSYS) MBROPT(*ALL) ALWOBJDIF(*ALL) RSTLIB(RBTSYSLIB)

  4. Enter the following command to place RBTSYSLIB in your system library list:

    WRKSYSVAL QSYSLIBL

    Then, enter a 2 to change the value and add RBTSYSLIB on the panel. Press Enter.

  5. Sign off and then sign back on using the same user profile. This places RBTSYSLIB in your system library list.

  6. Restore the Robot Alert library, RBTALRLIB, from disk, file, or tape by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RSTLIB SAVLIB(RBTALRLIB) DEV(device_name) MBROPT(*ALL) ALWOBJDIF(*ALL)

    where: device_name is the name of the device to use for the restore operation.

  7. Place Robot Alert on hold by selecting option 4 from the Robot Alert Control Menu, or by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RBTALRLIB/RBAHLDALR

  8. Make Robot Alert inactive by selecting option 2 from the Control Menu, or by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RBTALRLIB/RBAEND

  9. Delete the following data queues in the RBTALRLIB library: RBACMMDQ, RBACMTDQ, RBATMDQ, and RBATMDQ2.

    Note: These queues will automatically be recreated when you start Robot Alert.

  10. Release Robot Alert by using option 5 from the Control Menu, or by entering the following command from a command prompt:

    RBTALRLIB/RBAHLDALR ACTION (*RELEASE)
