The table below shows the current shipping versions for the Robot products, along with operating system compatibility and other useful information.

How can I tell what I am currently running?

To find the release and modification level or creation date of each product you currently have installed, enter the following command on a command line:

RSLVER

Robot Autotune and Easy View users

If you have no other Robot products installed, use the following commands to determine the release/modification level of your products:

Robot Autotune

ATLIB/ATM—displays in upperleft corner

Easy View

DSPDTAARA EZVIEW/EVXRELMOD

Robot Monitor users

Use the following commands to determine the version/release level of your product.

To check the version number:

DSPDTAARA DTAARA(MSM/MONVER)

To check the release number:

DSPDTAARA DTAARA(MSM/MONFIX)

Note: If you use a different product library than MSM, specify that library instead.

Performance Navigator users 

To determine the release of your IBM ihost code, run the following:

GO MPGLIB/PERFNAV

Select option 7

To determine if your host code is compatible with your IBM i OS, run the following:

WRKOBJ MPGLIB/MPGDR2* *PGM

Look for the program with the last two digits corresponding to your OS level. For example, for OS 7.1, look for the program MPGDR271

Recommended Product/Operating System Compatibility

Notes:

    1. You must have IBM Media and Storage Extensions (MSE) to run Robot Save.

    2. If you use Robot Save to archive reports, you must have Robot Save 11.06 (or higher) installed on your system.

    3. Robot LPAR Version 2 (or higher) requires HMC Version 6, Release 1.3 (or higher)

    4. When upgrading your system to IBM i 7.1, you must delete Robot Autotune version 7 and perform a new installation of version 8 on the IBM i 6.1 system. You cannot install Robot Autotune 8 until the upgrade to IBM i 7.1 is complete. The new installation of version 8 requires you to re-enter your setup values plus a new security code.

    5. As of 6.1, 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)

    6. If you’re going to run Robot Replay and need to upgrade your operating system level to one of the following, you must apply the specified PTFs:

      IBM i Version PTF
      7.1

      MF53665

      SI58105

      7.2 SI58106
    7. If you’re going to update Robot Schedule and your version is R11M16 or below, you must apply the specified IBM PTFs before doing the update:

      IBM i Version PTF
      7.1 5770SS1/SI52159
      7.2 5770SS1/SI52164
    8. If you're going to run Robot Autotune and need to upgrade your operating system level to the following, you must apply the specified PTF:

      IBM i Version PTF
      7.3 SI59979
    9. If you're going to run Robot Monitor and need to upgrade your operating system level to the following, you must apply the specified PTFs:

      IBM i Version PTF
      7.1

      MF48890, superseded by MF59685
      SI52471, superseded by SI56900
      MF56844, superseded by MF59539

      7.2 SI52785, superseded by SI56826
    10. If you use IFS monitoring in Robot Transform, please contact HelpSystems support.

    11. Robot Browser Interface (RBI) is not compatible to run natively on IBM i 7.4, but there are alternative options depending on your environment. If you are running RBI on Windows or UNIX/Linux, you can continue to run on this platform. If you are not, here are your options to continue to use RBI as you move to IBM i 7.4.
      • You can migrate your RBI setup to a Windows or UNIX/Linux server.
      • If you are using RBI with Robot Alert, Robot Space, or Robot Reports, you are still able to access your products without the use of RBI. 
      • If you are using RBI with Robot Schedule or Robot Network, you can use HelpSystems Insite, our mobile-friendly, single pane of glass interface. 
      Please contact HelpSystems support to further discuss all of your options with RBI moving forward.
