Navigator for i - New Version

News


Abstract

Approved 9/24 and available in the HTTP group in the last week of September.

IBM Navigator for i is a modern web-based interface for managing and monitoring one or more IBM i instances from a single location. This modern user interface can be accessed from http://hostname:2002/Navigator.

With the 2H 2021 Navigator PTFs, IBM Navigator for i is re-created in a new framework and user interface that replaces the heritage IBM Navigator for i. This new IBM Navigator for i runs under the ADMIN1 server and by default listens on port 2002. The URL for the new Navigator is http://hostname:2002/Navigator

The PTFs for 7.3 and 7.4 are approved.
They will be available in the HTTP group before September 30.

Getting started with Navigator:

Navigator for i is redesigned, leveraging the latest in web and IBM i data retrieval technology to create a user-centric, high-performing interface for monitoring and managing one or more IBM i systems.

To open the new Navigator after installing the PTFs, use the URL: http://hostname:2002/Navigator.  Note that the additional "/Navigator" text is required and is also case sensitive.  This is a change from the heritage navigator URL; not only the port number, but also the additional path is required.

Service Level Requirement:
IBM Navigator is installed as part of the IBM i operating system. It is part of SS1 option 3. The actual PTF is delivered as part of the HTTP PTF Group.

In addition, there are a number of other groups that are needed to ensure that all parts of the navigator interface function properly.  For a list of these groups, see Product Install Requirements.
