Migrating to a new system which uses AS400. Sites which have useful info?

Our company is in the process of installing a new ERP system called Frontier 
made by Friedman which runs on an AS400.

We have a small I.T department and at present none of us have any AS400 / 
OS400 experience.

What sites have good technical information that can be downloaded 
(preferably for free) regarding system admin of the iSeries hardware and 
software.

On another topic as anyone here got personal experience of Frontier and what 
do they think of it?

Cheers.

Nexus -

Frontier is very strong for volume custom configured products such as
doors, windows, blinds and simple structures like sheds or trailers.
Unless you are in this type of business and
fully automating this part of your business is pivotal, I would look
elsewhere.

The configurator module uses the as/400 database as a hierarchical
database. This gives great flexibility in setting up options and the
ability to quickly add new dimentions, attributes to your product, such
as length, width, material, colour, finish. The downside of this is
that there is little referential integrity and it is easy to get too
ambitious and make a big mess of the configuration files.

The code is old and patched. User screens are clunky, often optimized
for speed and memory usage, not user-friendlyness. Users will grumble
and remind you that writing orders in Excel was much easier.
Configured products by their very nature adds great complexity to the
backend. Reports all have to be custom written and balancing inventory
is a pain. They had a Java/Web version just coming out that was
dangerously beta. Hopefully they have improved on this. There is very
little consistency in look and feel between screens. Requires a lot of
training, patience and good computer literate product managers and
engineers to keep it working.

The payoff is more accurate order-entry and better customer service.
The system will guide your sales and entry staff as to what can be sold
and even make recommendations when something is possible but may not
make sense.

It also makes it possible to re-gain control of your manufacturing
process and monitor it at your computer instead of running around the
factory floor all day.

Contact  me if you have any questions.

You have some excellent references given by the kind people who have
responded below!

I recall reviewing Friedman as a vendor some many moons ago, and found
they have a lot of iSeries experience. Might I suggest you commit some
doolar to training with them?

You get what you pay for...

Nobody has mentioned the obvious and maybe you already know, but, all
of the AS/400 Technical manuals are available for download at:

* use in As400
I have been using as400 for agbout a month at work and i cannot figure out what the * means..... I understand wild card astericks perfectly like dir *.txt. However what does it mean before a word... the best I can figure out is that it means any... as in *DEV, *LIB. But what about *YES, *NO, etc.... Is there a good explanation or is it just an "AS400 thing" as a co-worker told me.

It's just an OS/400 thing (actually it predates OS/400 back to CPF on the S/38) as a way to specify special values. For some things it could go either way. If a parameter only accepts a yes/no value, *YES/*NO or YES/NO or Y/N would work equally well. But for something like an object name, *ALL and ALL are _not_ the same thing. *ALL is all objects. ALL is an object called ALL. -- Ken http://www.kensims.net/ Opinions expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent the views of my employer or anyone in their right mind. Greg, The * in front of a parameter is a way to designate a reserved keyword without actually using up a real word. So, for example *YES is a reserved keyword but YES is not reserved. Many operating systems have reserved words that prohibit their use elsewhere. The AS/400 mitigates this by putting a * in front of the actual word to create a completel...

Why use an AS400?
I work with a company that really pushes the AS/400. My big question is why? What does the AS/400 offer that you can't get on a conventional server? I know our code is written in RPG and uses a SQL database. Any input would be apprecaited. Thank you for your help. There are 4 main reasons 1. Reliability - almost never goes down. 2. Security - no known virus. 3. Usually, a lower TCO (total cost of ownership) 4. Keep the investment in existing code (who else runs RPG?) Numbers 1 & 2 are why you see most casinos, banks, insurance companies, and the like running this system. Lee wrote: > I work with a company that really pushes the AS/400. My big question > is why?

Microsoft uses IBM AS400's for development.
Not well known but Microsoft uses IBM AS400 machines with the Windows server card option to develop programs. This option is really a PC on a card but offers significant advantages over a stand alone pc in that it can support virtual sessions of Windows each of which can be rebooted as required without bringing down the other seesions or worse the rest of the machine. Microsoft is a huge IBM AS400 customer. Most people assume developers are using PC's sitting next to their work space.

How to use AS400 journaling?
Hi, I am using V5R4. Is there any way to see a table journal in the form of SQL that was actually run on it? Can I see that at some date and some time, someone did an UPDATE, or INSERT or DELETE? Can I see the full SQL query that was executed (sort of like what is saved with interactive SQL sessions, but for all users)? The output of DSPJRN is very criptic, I'm looking for something simpler.

You'll have to start a database monitor job to see this but there's no way to limit it to a particular table. You can limit it by job and I think user (this option is new to V5R4) or you can start one for the entire system but you'll need lots of free DASD to store all of the information it produces and it will slow the system down. Matt SQL is not the only way to delete or insert rows. The program name and job attributed to the action defines the where, the user defines the who, and of course the date/time defines the when; what the identified program does, defines the ...

Buying used AS400
In 2001 I lost my job as an RPG/COBOL programmer of several years and ended up with jobs in the last 6 years that were not involved with AS400 at all. So now as a consultant of a few months have a client that needs data migrated off of their AS400 that had no PC's attached and have to work on getting a workstation set up with emulation card to download the data. As a result of this, I have decided to look into buying a used AS400 that I can used to download client data from tape as well as have RPG & QUERY400 compilers as a part of it. I think I need to look for a 170 or 270 but not sure what the difference between the 2 is? And I have found alot of places to buy the CPU with the OS but where do I find the other software to install on it. Also, has anyone had any experience in using the Nlynx 3xtwin PCI card to connect and download data using PCSupoort? Thanks MP 1st a home i5 (AS/400) is expensive to maintain. It's not just the hardware but the software licenses and hardware upkeep. I have had to barter for replacement features several time to keep my machine alive. 2nd to deal with client tapes you need compatible drives. Since there are so many formats this too can get expensive. I have had to FTP some very large files around because of not having the right tape drive. This may not be a problem if you have the kind of bandwidth I have. 3rd no one uses a PC emulation card anymore. Just setup your home network to work with iSeries Access via TC...

AS400 for Home Use
Hi all, I've been considering picking up a used as/400 and would appreciate any comments on the feasibility of purchasing a low end machine for development use at home. I have a background in rpg/cobol development but am unsure of hardware, processor and licensing issues involved. There seem to be many 170s and older interactive boxes with V4R4 available but can anyone comment on licensing, the availability of PDM, compilers and other LPPs in the used marketplace, etc? V4R4 with RPG, Cobol, etc would satisfy my initial requirements, but upgradeability to V5R1 with WDStudio tools would be an eventual concern. I would appreciate any advice on the minimum processor, memory requirements for any WAS development, webfacing etc for a single user in a non production environment. Thanks in advance. Allan Smallest current model is 800, but that's probably still a little too pricey for at home. You might be able to pick up a used 250. Either way, software has to be licensed from IBM. Another option is Baby/400, from California Software. I've never seen or used it, but they have a long history. (First product of theirs I heard of was Baby/36.) It runs on a PC, so hardware is inexpensive. It includes editor (like SEU), compilers, and database that mimics PF/LFs. If you only need to do some development and testing, this might be enough. But it is not OS/400. I'm pretty sure it won't have support for OS functions such as communications (SNA, TCP/IP), security, and...

While using Shell to open a new instance of same database, using vbHide to Hide the new instance fails.
I have some long Excel routines that I would like to run from my database in a hidden, second instance of the same Access db. The macro I pass to the shell command to open the second instance contains code to 'Hide' the database (from Dev's site) and also the code which runs the Excel routine. It then quits the database when the code has finished running. Here is my code to open a new instance of my db: NewDBID = Shell(AccessDir & "msaccess.EXE " & strFileName & ShellMacro, vbNormal) This works fine -- except that I get the flash on the screen before the macro passed in the argument fires, hides the window, and begins the Excel export routine. When I change the Shell window argument to 'vbHide,' it hides the first instance of the db(which fired the shell command) and brings me to the main menu of the second instance -- not what I want. The first instance should have the focus at all times, while the second runs hidden. I would like to find a way to avoid this flashing when the second db opens, just before the 'Hide' code runs -- any ideas? ...

Upload to AS400 using VB
I've got a little program written in VBA, which takes some data from an Excel file and uploads to a physical file on our AS400. The program works fine, except that the user is obliged to complete the login screen in order to carry out the upload request. I thus amended the prompt properties and hardcoded the id and password into the code. As far as I can tell this works, and I'm logged into the sytem as should be, but now I get the following error, when running the final "upload" method. "A conversion error has occurred during the tretament of the transfer demand". The only differnce between my program working and not working is this lack of user id/ password prompt. Anbody have any thoughts on why this is occurring? Note that the error I've displayed is a translation from French, since I am using French software. Thanks Mohsen Maybe it's your auditors blocking the hard coding of the password. -- Doug "mo_in_france" <qureshi.mohsen@gmail.com> wrote in message news:fca54c4e-6968-4a14-a5bd-389dbd592d3a@w34g2000hsg.googlegroups.com... > I've got a little program written in VBA, which takes some data from > an Excel file and uploads to a physical file on our AS400. > > The program works fine, except that the user is obliged to complete > the login screen in order to carry out the upload request.

Has anyone used .NET with the AS400
Has anyone used .NET with the AS400, or know of any good jump start books? The only training course that i can find to see how to gain access to DB2 is a $495 casette based course.

It requires v5r3. You probably intend to program against the ISeries using the .NET framework on a thick client (eg. VB/C#) or from a web server (eg. ASP.NET)? The ISeries doesn't run the .NET framework natively so you will always need a Windows host (excepting the Linux Mono project of course). Your access to the ISeries is via ADO.NET / OleDB and, if set correctly, it should result in almost identical program code only with the DB2 provider. So any introductory VB/C#/ASP.NET programming guide would work only with the DB2 provider. Rj.

how to use and as400 9401-150
hello i just go and as400 ibm server model 9401-150 without instructions. and i dont understand how do you connect to it. some people tell me i need and 100 serial to twinax cable in a ibm page that i dont recall says that i can connect using the MI port on the back. but i am not sure how can i connect to this ports. was thinging if any of you guys can point me to and manual for this server as in the ibm page i cannot find the instruction manual and what programs do i need to connect to it. and thanks for ur help guys. There are basically 3 ways to connect. 1. With twinax cable to a "dumb" 5250 terminal (if twinax card installed) 2. With a special serial cable to a PC with special software installed (console) 3. With ethernet to a PC with 5250 emulation installed. Prob the most common, but does not support "console" mode, and requires TCP services be running. Maybe the 150 has other options? I'm not very familiar with that model. The IBM infocenter web site might help. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp Change the V5R4 to the version of the o/s you have. the as400 has in the back 2 cards installed 1 that have like 2 printer ports that are flat and on that have 1 of those connector and a serial conector. also it have 2 more serial conector one that says MI (management Interface) and another one that says UPS(uniterruptible power suppy) also idk what os this is running as this was a gift so its there a way i can ...

using AS400 SMTP server
I'm trying to use the SMTP server from our AS400, which has outbound access= to the internet but is blocked from inbound ports. The purpose is to have our custom AS400 software email customer invoices, s= tatements, and ocasional reports. I've added an SFP TXT record to the DNS and that seems to be accepted as a = "pass" by many servers. However certain servers like aol.com and rcn.com w= ill not accept email from us. The reason given is usually some kind of tim= eout that doesn't give the reason that the server won't accept email from u= s: NOT ABLE TO DELIVER MAIL TO SOME/ALL RECIPIENTS. REPLY CODES WITH FIRST DIGIT =3D '4' OR '5' ARE ERROR REPLIES. ERRORS THAT DO NOT HAVE ERROR REPLY CODES MAY EXIST. HOST PNNK00 NOT ABLE TO DELIVER MAIL TO FOLLOWING RECIPIENT(S): <xxxxxxx@yyyyyyy.NET> RETRIES EXHAUSTED WHILE ATTEMPTING TO CONNECT TO REMOTE HOST yyyyyyyy. In looking into this more, I see that while we now have an SPF that seems O= K, we don't have domain keys, DKIM or sender id Does anyone know the best way to get an AS400 internal SMTP server to be tr= usted where the AS400 is being used for Send Only and not open to public in= ternet pings on any port? Thanks Can't you bounce/relay it off a real internal SMTP server rather than trying to let the AS/400 do the sending ? The mail server framework has always been fraught with issues and it may be better to bou...
