iTech Solutions - for all of your IBM i System needs

iTech Tips

Ever want to see who responded to a message on the QSYSOPR message queue? There are two easy ways to do it.

It seems like every piece of documentation I’ve seen regarding uploading a save file (SAVF) to an IBM i partition, the instructions call for the creation of an empty SAVF in advance before the FTP transfer. You don’t need to do this! Save yourself the trouble and do it the fast way.

A good extra level of protection is to lock down system values for security. Those system values should only be changed after careful consideration.

Qshell is quite limited compared to a standard shell terminal. In particular, you only get a couple of command lines by default. Add some more!


“I would like to thank you for the excellent job in both facilitating the order, installation, and migration to the new 8202-E4D. Everyone here at Major League Baseball was extremely pleased in how well the installation went, and the migration from the old systems to the new system. We have noticed a nice increase in performance, while reducing our foot print in the datacenter. Again, thanks for all your efforts in the installation. Looking forward to working together in the future.”
