FIRST release of the new version of IBM Navigator for i
For information on the heritage IBM Navigator for i PTFs, see heritage Navigator PTFs.

 

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. 
1. Stop the ADMIN1 job before you apply the Navigator PTF with this command:                                                              
  •  > ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN1)                                  
  • The Navigator (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)                                 

5. Refresh (or reload) your browser after you apply the IBM Navigator for i PTFs.   image-20230526124135-1

Note: Navigator is built with cache-busting options so that every new build requires the browser to reload resources.  Navigator also turns off caching.  Browsers however determine whether or not these options are respected.  When a new PTF is applied, clearing the browser cache is not required as long as the browser is respecting these options.  If you are not seeing the new build date (check Home > About) or see anything that is unexpected, clearing cache may be the best option to get you on your way to using the new Navigator code.  

  • 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
  • Q4 2024 PTF had some incompatibilities that may require some users to open a new browser window or open an incognito or private browser window for the first log in after applying the PTF.

 
Log file information:
You can view the GUI log files from the Navigator GUI.  Select the "Serviceability" icon and choose "View GUI Logs" to open a list of the files available:
Serviceability -> View GUI Logs
The Navigator for i
Monitor log file information is detailed at the end of the Monitors Overview page.  The file location is:
  • /QIBM/UserData/OS400/Navigator/config/MONITOR
  • Note: the monitor log needs to be pulled from the managed/target node (not the managing/GUI node)

Instructions to stop and restart the Navigator (Monitor) Service manually:
To stop the server: 
> CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QNAVMNSRV) PARM(*STOP)
To start the server: 
> QSYS/SBMJOB CMD(CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QNAVMNSRV) PARM(*START)) JOB(QNAVMNSRV) JOBD(QGPL/QDFTSVR) JOBQ(QSYS/QSYSNOMAX) OUTQ(*CURRENT) USER(QWEBADMIN) CURLIB(*CRTDFT) INLLIBL(*JOBD) INLASPGRP(*JOBD) CCSID(37) CPYENVVAR(*YES)
Note:  that the Navigator Monitor server is also used for other Navigator tasks such as initializing tables for ARE and Web Administration.
