How to upgrade from Connect:Direct for i5/OS 3.6.00 to 3.7.00?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What is the proper method to upgrade from Connect:Direct for i5/OS version 3.6 to 3.7?

Cause

The file layouts are the same, the install conversions cannot be used.

Answer

To upgrade from version 3.6 to 3.7 follow the normal instructions from the Upgrade Guide, but do not use *YES for converting the Netmap, User or Secure+ files. Leave those values as *NO. The parameters are: Convert Old C:D Netmap file, Convert Old C:D User File, and Copy Secure+ Files.

Once the install is complete, manually issue the following CPYF commands to copy the data from the old 3.6 files to the new 3.7 files.

CPYF FROMFILE(old36LIB/CDNTMP) TOFILE(new37LIB/CDNTMP) MBROPT(*ADD)
CPYF FROMFILE(old36LIB/CDUSER) TOFILE(new37LIB/CDUSER) MBROPT(*ADD)
CPYF FROMFILE(old36LIB/SPACC) TOFILE(new37LIB/SPACC) MBROPT(*REPLACE)
CPYF FROMFILE(old36LIB/SPNTMP) TOFILE(new37LIB/SPNTMP) MBROPT(*REPLACE)

You can now start Connect:Direct and all the previous information will be available.
