Thank you for downloading Spool-a-Matic, the software utility that transforms IBM i spooled output into popular stream file formats.
There are 4 steps to installing Spool-a-Matic on your system. They are:
sam.svffrom your PC to the save file using FTP.
Procedures for each of these steps are detailed below. In these procedures PC denotes an operation performed on your PC while i denotes an IBM i operation performed on your system. Enter represents the enter key.
To create a save file on your system perform the following:
CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/SAMSAVF) AUT(*ALL)Enter
You are now ready to transfer
sam.svf to your system, go to Step 2 Transfer Procedure - FTP.
sam.svf to your system using FTP,
perform the following:
quote site namefmt 0Enter
put sam.svf samsavf.fileEnter
You are now ready to restore Spool-a-Matic from the save file, go to Step 3 Restore Procedure.
To restore Spool-a-Matic to IBM i perform the following:
Note: If you are running an IBM i release earlier than V7R2M0, release V2R8M0 of Spool-a-Matic cannot be installed on your system. Download and install an earlier release.
Take option 5 to display the value. If the value is not *ALL, use option 2 to add libraries SPLAMATIC and QSRV to the list of libraries where user domain objects are allowed. QSRV is required to correctly process PTFs when they are loaded and applied.
Take option 5 to display the value. If the restore options do not include *ALL or *ALWPGMADP, use option 2 to add *ALWPGMADP.
Take option 5 to display the value. If the value is 3 or higher, use option 2 to temporarily change the value to 1.
RSTLICPGM LICPGM(2A55SAM) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(QGPL/SAMSAVF) LNG(2924)Enter
Note: During the restore operation the system operator message queue may receive inquiry message CPA3DE4 "Directory not registered. (C G)". Unless you are using a directory naming convention similar to ours (that is the directory specified in the CPA3DE4's second level text is unrelated to our software), You can safely respond with a "G" to reestablish the relationship between the directory and the product. Typically the message will occur three or four times.
Note: When the RSTLICPGM command completes, library SPLAMATIC and directory '/Gumbo/ProdData/2A55SAM' contain the new software.
Temporary authorization of the software is automatic upon first use.
