General description

In this document you will find two procedures to obtain the versions of the products installed on the iSeries platform

Conclusion / Solution / Recommendation / Advice

Method 1

Follow the steps below in order to retrieve all products versions.

  1. Open an interactive session on the iSeries, then execute this command:

    ADDLIBLE T4NICELINK
     
  2. Now you have to execute a SQL query, to do that run this command:

    STRSQL
     
  3. Run the following query:

    SELECT * FROM T4NICELINK/LABEL L1 WHERE (L1.VER = T4_ProductVersion(L1.LIB)) AND (T4_ProductIsInstalled(L1.LIB) = 'Y')

If everything went fine, a screen like this will be shown:

Method 2

In order to get an iSeries product version, a command must be executed on iSeries side. It's mandatory to run the commands from a 5250 terminal emulator.

Product Command
VISUAL Message Center (iSeries Modules)  DSPDTAARA DTAARA(B_DETECTOR/JOBVPK) OUTFMT(*HEX)
Nicelink DSPDTAARA DTAARA(T4NICELINK/T4NICELINK) OUTFMT(*HEX)
Performance Manager (VCJ y VCP) DSPDTAARA DTAARA(JOBCTL/JOBVPK) OUTFMT(*HEX)
Debugging Agent (VISUAL Debugger) DSPDTAARA DTAARA(VISUALW/JOBVPK) OUTFMT(*HEX)
Supporting Agent (VISUAL Support) DSPDTAARA DTAARA(VSCREEN/JOBVPK) OUTFMT(*HEX)
Data Monitor for iSeries DSPDTAARA DTAARA(T4DATAMON/JOBVPK) OUTFMT(*HEX)

 

The result could be a strange number. In order to know the actual version, take the first three characters after the last 0 and convert it from hexadecimal to decimal.

To check the OS400 version you can run this command: DSPDTAARA QUSRSYS/QSS1MRI.
