In the unlikely event the Sequel Maintenance Wizard cannot be used to upgrade your Sequel software, you can use FTP to move the necessary programs to the IBM i. The steps are outlined below.

Steps to FTP Sequel Upgrade Files

  1. Rename the SEQxxx.sq file on your PC to SEQxxx.zip.
     
  2. Unzip SEQxxx.zip to your PC (make note of this location for steps 8 and 10).
     
  3. Ignore the SQ.PROPS file – it is not needed.
     
  4. Create the IFS directory (in the root if the directory doesn’t exist):
    /HELPSYSTEMS/INSTALLS
  5. Using FTP, send SEQINST.JAR to the IFS directory:
    /HELPSYSTEMS/INSTALLS
  6. Create library SSISAVF on the System i using this command:
    CRTLIB LIB(SSISAVF)
  7. Create a save file in the library created in step 6 using this command:
    CRTSAVF FILE(SSISAVF/SEQINSTALL)
  8. Using FTP, send SEQINSTALL (from the zip file location used in step 2) to the SSISAVF/SEQINSTALL save file.
     
  9. Create the following save files in the SSISAVF library (see step 7 for syntax):
    ASCSUPPORT
    ESEND
    ESNDIR
    ESNPDF
    OPTICAL
    RIODIR
    SEQDIR
    SEQUEL
    SEQUELEX

    For Sequel 10 with Sequel Web Interface, you need must create two additional save files:

    SEQUELWI
    SWIDIR
     
  10. FTP all other files from the .zip (ascsupport, esend, esndir, optical, riodir, seqdir, sequel, sequelex, sequelwi, swidir) to their corresponding save files (created in step 9) in the SSISAVF library.
     
  11. Restore library SEQINSTALL from SSISAVF/SEQINSTALL using this command:
    RSTLIB SAVLIB(SEQINSTALL) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(SSISAVF/SEQINSTALL)
  12. Initiate the install using this command:
    SEQINSTALL/SEQSTRLOAD DEV(*SAVF) SAVFLIB(SSISAVF)
  13. Follow the remaining install steps to load the needed product(s)
