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. Stop the ADMIN1 job before you apply the Navigator PTF or the HTTP group with this command:                                                              
  •  > ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*IAS) INSTANCE(ADMIN1)                                  
  • Stop the MONITOR, one of two ways:
    1. Using the GUI
Stop Monitor Server
  • Or using command line:

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

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

  • A good place to do this is on the login panel.  Select the Reload or Refresh icon on your browser before you log in:
