Steps to apply IBM Navigator for i PTFs:

Note:  It is recommended to install the latest HTTP group instead of just the latest Navigator for i PTF (or two PTFs for heritage Navigator). 
Use of the HTTP Group requires a delayed apply and IPL. The following steps apply to single Navigator for i PTFs only and do not apply to use of the HTTP group.
1. Stop the ADMIN1 job before you apply the Navigator PTF with this command:                                                              
  •  > ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN1)                                  
  • The MONITOR service can be stopped with two methods:
    1. Using the GUI
Choose the 'Stop monitor server' command from the 'Actions' menu
  •  
    • 2. Using command line:
      • > CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QNAVMNSRV) PARM(*STOP)

2. Apply or remove the PTFs (immediate mode).                             
                                                                             
3. Start the ADMIN1 job with this command:                                            
   > STRTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN1)                                  

4. It is highly recommended to clear the browser cache after applying new PTFs.  It is not required.

5. Refresh (or reload) your browser after you apply the IBM Navigator for i PTFs.

  • A good time to refresh your browser is before you log in, on the login panel.  Select the Reload or Refresh icon on your browser before you log in:
  • Reload or Refresh browser at Log In screen
