Description

Top rule

IBM i 7.3 TR8 offers clients new features and enhancements across many of the components in the IBM i portfolio of products. As in previous releases, the enhancements are delivered through a set of PTF groups, known as a Technology Refresh, and provide significant improvements to developers and administrators.

Technical detail for IBM i enhancements delivered with IBM i 7.3 TR8 can be found on the IBM i Technology Updates wiki.

To make it easy to find IBM i 7.3 TR8-specific enhancements, see the aggregated list of enhancements found on the IBM i 7.3 TR8 wiki landing page.

IBM i Operating System (5770-SS1)

As in previous Technology Refreshes, many of the base operating system components are enhanced to provide new function and support new technologies.

Integrated Web Services

IWS is improved to supply users with status and error reporting across the HTTP interface. IWS now provides better controls for passing variables across the connection. These updates have been added as the result of requests from the user community suggesting that IWS be part of the REST-based architecture.

Additionally, IWS now enables the following:

  • Responses can be returned with error HTTP status code
  • User control of wrapper element names
  • Users can specify user-defined HTTP status codes and error messages on program invocation errors

For the latest information, see the Integrated Web Services server in the Technology Updates wiki.

Industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.3 (TLSv1.3)

IBM i System TLS is enhanced to support the latest industry standard of TLSv1.3. TLSv1.3 is enabled and used by default for partitions with system value QSSLPCL set to *OPSYS. Applications designed to use the System TLS default protocols will immediately support TLSv1.3 if the system value settings allow TLSv1.3. Other applications require configuration or code changes to enable TLSv1.3.

For additional details, see the Transport Layer Security in the IBM Knowledge Center.

The new Retrieve TLS Attributes (QsoRtvTLSA) API allows the retrieval of the system-wide System TLS current default properties. The properties can be changed and viewed with TLSCONFIG. The benefit of QsoRtvTLSA is that it can be included in programs or scripts for health check actions. Refer to QsoRtvTLSA in the IBM Knowledge Center for more details on its use.

Industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.2 (TLSv1.2)

IBM i System TLS has been enhanced with additional support for TLSv1.2. ChaCha20 Poly1305 cipher suites and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) stapling are now supported with TLSv1.2.

For additional details, see the Transport Layer Security in the IBM Knowledge Center.

IBM Navigator for i

The web-based navigator component of IBM i is enhanced to improve the charting of performance data and provide support for the new TLSv1.3 encryption.

For many years, IBM i Performance Data Investigator (PDI) has been included in Navigator for i. The graphical charts from PDI help administrators better understand the performance characteristics of IBM i. These PDI charts will now be rendered using a new modern web graphing capability. This will provide enhanced function, easier navigation, and "quick focus" on a range of time, among other improvements.

IBM i Services

IBM i Services, the strategic method for gaining access to IBM i objects, system information, and much more, continues to grow. Leveraging the power of SQL and the Db2 for i SQL Query Engine (SQE), application developers, database engineers, and system managers now have the ability to explore IBM i objects and data in ways that were not possible with previous technologies.

In the tradition of recent Technology Refreshes, IBM i Services are added and enhanced, providing useful SQL-based alternatives to IBM i commands and APIs:

  • The IFS_OBJECT_PRIVILEGES() UDTF is added, providing a powerful complement to the IFS_OBJECT_STATISTICS() UDTF to study and manage integrated file system (IFS) security.
  • The SYSTEM_STATUS_INFO UDTF and View are enhanced to return more detail about the IBM i partition, extending the possibilities of systems management using SQL.
  • The DISPLAY_JOURNAL() UDTF is enhanced to include SYSLOG coverage for more audit journal entry types, which makes it easier to manage IBM i security within a security information event management (SIEM) infrastructure.
  • The CERTIFICATE_INFO view provides an SQL alternative method to reviewing digital certificate detail, enabling new possibilities for automated and advanced certificate management.
  • The LIBRARY_INFO UDTF is added, providing a fast way to see the attributes of a library, including the object count and total size, which provides the framework for systems management dashboards.
  • The DELETE_OLD_SPOOLED_FILES procedure is added, with powerful and optional input controls that help transform a laborious topic of spooled file space management into an easy and automatable solution.
  • Major additions to work management-oriented services open the door to new and advanced solutions. The services include SUBSYSTEM_INFO, PRESTART_JOB_INFO, PRESTART_JOB_STATISTICS, JOB_LOCK_INFO, SUBSYSTEM_POOL_INFO, ROUTING_ENTRY_INFO, WORKSTATION_INFO, and AUTOSTART_JOB_INFO.

For these and other IBM i Services enhancements, see the IBM i Technology Updates wiki for complete details.

Digital Certificate Manager

Users that need to work with digital certificates on IBM i can now leverage a new, modern user interface. Users can easily see all the certificates in their stores, filter and sort them for quick identification, and visually see those that are expiring or have already expired. Additionally, users can manage the application definitions and easily assign certificates to them as required.

To access this new GUI, apply the required PTFs and enter the following into your browser: http://hostname:2001/DCM

Db2 for IBM i

Db2 for i, the integrated database for IBM i, known for containing the attributes valued by business computing solutions, is enhanced to include new and improved SQL capabilities.

Db2 for i enhancements

With IBM i 7.3 TR8, Db2 for i continues to focus on new and advanced SQL capabilities and the ability to use SQL to access IBM i operating system details. These enhancements can make it easier to deploy and extend powerful programming solutions:

  • SQL extended indicators can be used within SQL programming language (PL) code bodies to deploy powerful yet flexible SQL statements.
  • The INTERPRET built-in function is added, allowing SQL to be used to easily transform binary data into useful SQL data types.
  • The JSON_TABLE table function is enhanced to support direct consumption of JSON arrays, making it easier to consume JSON feeds through SQL.

New capabilities are added to assist in the important role of managing the database on IBM i:

  • A COMPARE_FILE utility offers an easy way to compare two files, returning any differences in object attributes or data.
  • The DB_TRANSACTION_INFO view provides insight into database transactions that are active, with extended detail.

These and other enhancements are delivered through Db2 PTF Group SF99703. To learn more about these and other Db2 for IBM i enhancements, see the Db2 for i - Technology Updates main landing page.

IBM i Licensed Program Products

Many of the LPPs in the IBM i portfolio have new and updated functions in IBM i 7.3 TR8.

IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for i (5770-HAS)

IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for i (PowerHA for i) brings a new set of enhancements centered around security, integration, and usability that simplify the management of high availability environments.

Security compliance automation

Until now, the Analyze Profile Activity (ANZPRFACT) functionality has been used to find and disable user profiles that have not been used in a specified number of days. In a high availability environment, users typically sign in only to the production system, causing user profile usage information to be updated only on the production system. After a switchover or failover when the ANZPRFACT processing runs on the new primary node, many more users than just the inactive users are disabled, impacting the availability of the system for many users.

PowerHA for i introduces a new policy (QHA_AD_ANZCADPRF) and a command (ANZCADPRF) that analyzes and caches usage information across nodes in the PowerHA for i environment. This capability helps users meet security policies of disabling inactive profiles on all nodes while avoiding auditing concerns that exist with other high availability solutions.

Real-time Recovery Point Objective (RPO) information

One of the key metrics for a business continuity solution is the RPO, which indicates how much data will be lost in the event of a disaster.

PowerHA for i introduces real-time RPO information on the display screens for both IBM Spectrum Virtualize (SVC)-based replication and IBM Copy Services Manager (CSM) for DS8000-based replication. This enables users to always know their RPO.

PowerHA for i SQL services

Taking direction from other components of IBM i, PowerHA for i now includes support for SQL services to retrieve PowerHA information. This initial support includes SQL-based access for the following:

  • Cluster and cluster node information and status
  • Administrative domain and monitored resource information and status
  • Cluster resource group information and status

Simplified updates and upgrades with automated version management

PowerHA for i now automatically updates the PowerHA version once the upgrade or PTF has been applied to all nodes within the environment. Previous versions of PowerHA for i often introduced new features that required the command Change Cluster Version (CHGCLUVER) to be run before enabling the new functionality. This new feature simplifies the management of the PowerHA environment by eliminating the need to use the CHGCLUVER command.

Additional enhancements

There are several other enhancements to PowerHA for i, including:

  • A redesign of session display screens now takes advantage of 132 column displays and provides a clearer indication of replication status.
  • Simplification of the configuration and management of PowerHA for i by updating some commands to provide contextual F4 prompt options, optimized to the specific environment and configuration.

For more information on these enhancements and to get started, see the IBM PowerHA SystemMirror for i wiki page.

IBM Backup, Recovery and Media Services for i (5770-BR1)

BRMS is improved based on feedback from BRMS users. The major enhancements are:

  • A new setting that verifies there is enough storage available for a restore operation before submitting the restore.
  • Enhanced logging that offers a new setting to log additional messages from backup and restore operations.
  • Tracing is no longer in the /tmp directory, allowing start-up jobs to clear temporary space without losing BRMS tracing.
  • Existing user profiles used to perform BRMS operations may require additional authority to allow proper access. Additional authority may be granted using the SETUSRBRM command with the new USAGE(*AUT) parameter option. Note that *SECADM authority is required to use the SETUSRBRM command.
  • Processing of INZBRM OPTION(*FLASHCOPY) STATE(*STRPRC) now ends the BRMS Enterprise subsystem named Q1ABRMENT.
  • Reclaim Media (Q1ARCLMED) API provides the ability to reclaim tape volumes.
  • DRDA/DDM Conjoined Mutual Authentication is now supported.
  • Enhanced processing of job log messages improves performance.
  • The STRRCYBRM command now orders * IBM and *ALLUSR libraries by ascending tape sequence order.
  • Turnkey virtual support is available when using media classes named QAVVRTTAP or QAVVRTOPT.

These enhancements are available with 7.3 PTF SI71974.

IBM Administration Runtime Expert for i

ARE support has been enhanced to better meet the needs of administrators looking for a solution to maintain, distribute, and apply PTFs to multiple IBM i partitions. The PTF support inside ARE has been improved to better manage the diverse PTF apply requirements, and updated reporting helps users better understand the PTF status of individual machines.

IBM HTTP Server (Powered by Apache)

The HTTP server for IBM i has been enhanced to support the latest levels of security and encryption. These enhancements include:

  • Support for new TLSv1.3 cipher suites TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256, *AES_128_GCM_SHA256, and *AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • Support for new TLSv1.2 cipher suites TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256 and TLS ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • Support for new TLSv1.3 directive SSLMiddleboxCompatibilityMode for compatibility
  • Support for new TLSv1.3 directive SSLSessionTicketKeyTimeOut for TLSv1.3 session ticket key timeout
  • Updated directives SSLCipherSpec, SSLProxyCipherSpec, SSLCipherBan, and SSLCipherRequire to support TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 ciphers
  • Updated default value of directive SSLV3Timeout from 86400 to 43200
  • HTTP/2 support for new TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 ciphers

IBM Rational Development Studio for i (5770-WDS)

IBM i has added several new features to RPG, increasing the appeal of the language to modern programmers. Listening to requests from the IBM i development community has enabled IBM to meet the needs of IBM i developers. These updates include:

  • %TIMESTAMP() returns a value with microsecond precision. %TIMESTAMP(*UNIQUE) returns a 32-byte unique timestamp with microsecond precision and with "uniqueness" digits in the final 6 fractional seconds.
  • %KDS supports a variable or expression for the second "number of keys" parameter.
  • The LIKEDS keyword supports a simple qualified name.

For more information on details and updates, see the RPG Cafe website.

IBM Rational Developer for i (RDi 9.6.0.7) (5733-RDW)

Continuous focus on developer productivity and ease-of-use modern programming has yielded improved RDi features and usability. This latest update includes significant improvements to continue to help RPG developers with the process of refactoring and modernizing code:

  • New extract procedure refactoring feature can be used to convert business rules into reusable procedures in RPG. To use this new function, select a block of code in a source member and right-click -> Refactor -> Extract Procedure. Change the procedure name to something meaningful and then follow the wizard. Press Ctrl+Z to undo the procedure creation.
  • New extract procedure refactoring feature can be used to convert business rules into reusable procedures in RPG. To use this new function, select a block of code in a source member and right-click -> Refactor -> Extract Procedure. Change the procedure name to something meaningful and then follow the wizard.

  • Preference search filter has been enhanced to provide more accurate results for RDi preferences.
  • RDi now uses the ACS SQL formatter to provide full support for the SQL language embedded in RPG. Programmers formatting their embedded SQL will see that syntax errors are detected and highlighted automatically. Additionally, the new formatter is invoked when you ask to format an SQLRPGLE member, or for the selected lines therein, using the same menu invocation.
  • IBM i Service Entry Points now allow conditional entries for breakpoints.
  • Support for variables exceeding 4,000 in length has been added to the RDi Debugger. This will improve the ability to debug large character variables from JSON or XML documents.

For more information on these and many more enhancements, see the IBM Rational Developer for i fix list.

IBM i Access Client Solutions (5733-XJ1)

In this Technology Refresh, ACS is updated based on the direct feedback from the IBM i user community.

Enhancements to the 5250 emulator:

  • Compatible pasting of special characters, like quotation marks, from other Microsoft Windows documents when the following property is set: "com.ibm.iaccess.PC5250Compatibility=allowTransformSpecialCharsOnPaste".
  • Capability to reorder a print screen collection.
  • When launching sessions from Session Manager, the current entry in Session Manager will remain selected when the 5250 session exits.

  • Print Screen Setup option allows column separators to be set independently from the Display session.
  • Allows use of the Yen symbol and backslash key at the same time.

General enhancements:

  • Shows a splash screen until product starts
  • Run SQL Scripts
    • Improvements to the SQL Content Assist feature to include additional aspects of the SQL language and improved performance
    • Content Assist preferences support, including description text and data type
  • Open Source Package Management
    • The Open Source Package Management feature of ACS has been enhanced to make it easier to install RPM-based open source packages. With the new SSH tunneling option, RPMs can be installed on an IBM i partition even if that partition does not have direct access to the internet-based RPM repository.

Open source

The open source ecosystem continues to grow, with emphasis on the RPM-based set of deliveries. To get started with RPMs, see the IBM i RPM Open Source repository.

Security updates

Numerous RPM packages were rebuilt to use the newest OpenSSL libraries (version 1.1.0, or later), including curl, wget, git, Node.js, Python, and others. Also, to make TLS easier to configure, common CA certificates are now shipped in the ca-certificates package and the ca-certificates-mozilla package. Further, the initial installation of the open source ecosystem, sometimes referred to as the bootstrap, includes these certificates by default.

jq

To allow command-line processing of JSON data, the jq command has been delivered in RPM form. For more information, see the jq GitHub website.

Python ecosystem enhancements

An SQL Alchemy adapter for IBM i allows development and deployment of IBM i applications through SQL Alchemy, which provides an object-relational mapper (ORM), among other things. For more information, see the SQLAlchemy website and the IBM i adapter GitHub new project page.

The pyodbc package, a popular Python ODBC bridge, is now available in RPM form. By installing the python3-pyodbc package, you can now use the IBM i Access ODBC driver to communicate with Db2 for i from Python programs. For more information on the pyodbc package, see the pyodbc GitHub wiki.

Hardware and firmware

There are some enhancements related to hardware and firmware that expand configuration options to simplify operations and improve performance of LPM configurations:

IBM i tape library virtualization

IBM i now supports sharing the TS2900 (3572), TS3100/3200 (3573), and TS4300 (3555) tape library devices between multiple IBM i partitions without requiring multiple adapters, a SAN switch, or a VIOS partition. This support is for both a SAS-attached tape library device and a Fibre Channel-attached tape library device, and the server and client partitions can be running any combination of IBM i 7.2, IBM i 7.3, or IBM i 7.4.

This enhancement may be especially beneficial to clients who currently use manual operations to share tape library devices among IBM i client partitions with a single IBM i partition owning the tape library device, with the tape library device dedicated to a single IBM i partition, and who need to manually Vary Off, DLPAR, and then Vary On the device in the desired partition.

Hybrid network virtualization

The IBM PowerVM V3.1.1 Service Pack 20 release includes hybrid network virtualization capability, which utilizes SR-IOV to allow virtualized networking configuration of VMs for optimal performance while also supporting LPM.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
