When upgrading your system to V7R1, you must delete Robot AUTOTUNE version 7 and perform a new installation of version 8 on the V6R1 system. You cannot install Robot Autotune 8 until the upgrade to V7R1 is complete. The new installation of version 8 requires you to re-enter your setup values plus a new security code.
As of V6R1, IBM changed the default behavior of the Power Down System (PWRDWNSYS) command. The default value (*ENVVAR) for the CONFIRM parameter on the PWRDWNSYS command now displays a confirmation window. This will cause the Robot Save Restricted State Utility (RSU) to halt and wait for a confirmation before performing the IPL. Enter the following command on a command line to permanently bypass the confirmation window on the PWRDWNSYS command:
ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(QIBM_PWRDWNSYS_CONFIRM) VALUE(*NO) LEVEL(*SYS)
