2017 : A bug in Performance Data Investigator (PDI) was exposed in Java RE 8.  

HTTP Group level 10 (7.3), 23 (7.2) and 49 (7.1)  caused the PDI perspective tree to not display and most of the PDI packages to appear empty.  

The change to use JRE 8 as default was made in SI64933 (7.3) SI64932 (7.2) and SI64931 (7.1).

Circumvent this problem by either:

1) skipping HTTP level 10 and go right to level 11 (7.3), 24 (7.2) and 50 (7.1) because the corresponding fix will then be included in IBM Navigator for i PTFs at this level.

In 7.2, the Navigator web console underwent significant updates.  If you have not tried it in the last couple of years, please give it another try with the latest PTFs and look at the Enhancements list.

Note: There are 2 required PTFs for each Service Pack:

  1. Navigator for i
  2. Common PTF

Steps to apply IBM Navigator for i PTFs:

Note: It is recommended to install the latest HTTP group instead of just the two Navigator for i PTFs
1. Enter the following commands to stop the ADMIN2 job before             
applying PTFs/group:                                                                
  •  > ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN2)                                  
  • Stop the MONITOR, one of two ways :
    1. Using the GUI Stop Monitor Server
    2. Or using command line: CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QINAVMNSRV) PARM(*STOP)

2. Apply or remove the PTFs/group (immediate mode).                             
                                                                             
3. Start the ADMIN2 job using:                                            
   > STRTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN2)                                  

4. It is highly recommended to clear the browser cache after applying IBM Navigator for i PTFs or HTTP group.
