APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The PTF delivers some improvements on IBM Navigator for i.

1.For DM GUI support for Slider disk enclosure:
For the new Silder disk enclosure, the Graphical View in IBM
Navigator for i doesn't provide the front view of it and the
disks inserted in the Slider disk enclosure can't be operated in
IBM Navigator for i.

2. Failure with additional VLAN IDs on update when creating
partition:
For servers that are not managed by an HMC, IBM Navigator for i
provides the ability to specify additional VLAN IDs for a
virtual ethernet adapter, in accordance with the IEEE 802.1Q
specification.  When this option is used in the hosting
partition (partition 1), the partition may fail to create the
virtual device.

3. For Performance Data Investigator:
1) Performance Data Investigator perspective "Disk Statistical
Overview by Disk Unit" sort by disk unit number was not sorted
by the numeric value.
2) Performance Data Investigator users with profiles granted
authorization by QPMCCFCN list were not provided authority to
the PML location directories.
3) Performance Data Investigator was not handling large memory
sizes from QAPMCONF file.  This resulted in an empty field for
partition memory on System Information panel as well as
incorrect value on Size Next Upgrade launch to Workload
Estimator.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE65506' :
-------------------------------
1. For DM GUI support for Slider disk enclosure:
To support the new Slider disk enclosure in IBM Navigator for i,
the disks in the Slider disk enclosure, the corresponding frame
and the front view of the frame can be shown in the Graphical
View function. What's more, the disks inserted in the Slider
disk enclosure can also be operated as needed.

2. Failure with additional VLAN IDs on update when creating
partition:
The Licenced Internal Code (LIC) path can accidentally remove
virtual ethernet resources from the partition when additional
VLAN IDs are set.  With this PTF, IBM Navigator for i uses a new
interface that does not cause this issue.

3. For Performance Data Investigator:
1) The disk unit number was evaluated as a char instead of an
integer.  Changes were made to correctly evaluate the disk unit
number as an integer.  Sort on this field is now done correctly.
2) The authorization list QPMCCFCN will be granted authority to
the PML directory '/QIBM/UserData/OS400/Navigator/config/PML'
through the PTF exit program.  Users in this authorization list
will be able to access the PML directories.
3) Changes were made to correctly use and display large memory
sizes on the QAPMCONF System Information Panel as well as
passing the values to Workload Estimator on the Size next
Upgrade Panel.  This included using the larger field POSIZB in
QAPMPOOLB when available.

4. Under Add Tape action, a function for making cartridges
available has been added.

5. For Enhanced Subsystem Management features:
Subsystem management within IBM Navigator for i has been greatly
expanded. Previously, only the currently active subsystems could
be displayed and worked with using Navigator. A new node for
Subsystem Descriptions has been added under the Work Management
node. This displays the subsystem descriptions on the IBM i.
From this list, you can create a subsystem description. You can
also change, start, stop, show jobs, delete, and edit properties
for existing subsystem descriptions.
The properties for a subsystem description now allow the user to
add/change/remove the following type of subsystem description
attributes, without having to know the appropriate CL command:
-- autostart job entries
-- work station name entries
-- work station type entries
-- job queue entries
-- routing entries
-- communication entries
-- remote location name entries
-- prestart job entries

6. The Journal Viewer utility has been enhanced with new
filtering capabilities that include: ending receiver, ending
sequence number, and ending date/time.

7. Bell (4-port Async adapter) has been added to support Async
PPP on IBM Navigator for i.

8. Display PTF Apply Information (DSPPTFAPYI) is added to IBM
Navigator for i, which can used to predict if the selected PTFs
or PTF group can be applied immediately from *SERVICE.

9. System and message monitors daemon job QINAVMNSRV has been
changed to run under QLWISVR instead of QSECOFR to make the job
QINAVMNSRV much safer.

10. IBM Navigator for i now supports HTTP as the default
protocol instead of HTTPs:
Users can access http://<hostname>:2001/ as before, but this
will now redirect users to HTTP port 2004 instead of HTTPs port
2005.
HTTPs will be disabled by default. If users require HTTPs, it
must now be configured on the individual IBM i system.  You can
follow the instructions on our service page:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1021726.

11. Additonal browser support:
The Safari and Edge browsers can now be used to access IBM
Navigator for i.  IE will no longer be supported. IBM Navigator
for i now supports the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, Google
Chrome, Apple Safari, and Microsoft Edge.

12. IFS Symbolic Link Indicator, which can separate symbolic
links and real files/directories in order to allow users to
determine file structure quicker and easier.

13. Dashboard is a new feature delivered on IBM Navigator for i.
With the Dashboard, users can view key system data in real time.
This provides visual indicators of overall system status and
health.

14. The AFP Manager function is being added to IBM Navigator for
i. It is currently part of the System i Navigator client
application. AFP Manager lets you work with AFP resources (code
pages, coded fonts, font character sets, form definitions,
overlays, page definitions, and page segments), font mapping
tables, and PSF configuration objects. You can create an AFP
resource on your personal computer and save it as an object on
the system. This is called importing. AFP Manager also lets you
create font mapping tables and PSF configuration objects.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE65506' :
----------------------------------
1. For failure with additional VLAN IDs on update when creating
partition:
Re-IPLing the hosting partition will create the correct
resources.

2. For Performance Data Investigator:
1) Sort on another field for the perspective.
2) Add the authorization list to the Navigator directory:
QSYS/CHGAUT OBJ('/qibm/userdata/OS400/Navigator/config/pml')
AUTL(QPMCCFCN) SUBTREE(*ALL)
3) None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE64969' :
-------------------------------------------------
IFS Upload function in IBM Navigator for i puts PC Files into
IFS directories, but changes the file name to lower case.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE64969' :
-------------------------------
This PTF fixed the reported problem. File names after uploading
by IBM Navigator for i are kept the same.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE64969' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE65335' :
-------------------------------------------------
In IBM Navigator for i, open the printer output list and select
one printer output. The "View as PDF" function is not working
when the user profile contains a "#" character or the spool file
user has a "#" character.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE65335' :
-------------------------------
The user profile and the spool file user are included as URL
parameters to request the printer output content. They should be
escaped when containing special characters, such as "#". The PTF
fixes this problem.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE65335' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE64987' :
-------------------------------------------------
Sending PTFs function in IBM Navigator for i fails with message
"An error has occurred" when setting the Browser's locale to
Dutch language, because the text to be displayed has single
quote.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE64987' :
-------------------------------
This PTF fixed the reported issue. Sending PTFs works when
displayed text has single quote under Dutch language.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE64987' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE65585' :
-------------------------------------------------
When configuring EIM with the Navigator for IBM i and you use an
EIM domain that already exists it crashes LDAP with GLD0433. In
the GUI it fails with:
"Error occurred while changing local directory server
configuration. Error occurred while changing directory server
configuration. GLD0232: Configuration cannot contain overlapping
suffixes"

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE65585' :
-------------------------------
This PTF fixed the reported issue. When using IBM Navigator for
i to configure an EIM domain that already exists, the LADP
server will not crash. Now the GUI will catch the duplicate
domains problem and it fails with:
"Error occurred while creating domain EIM. EIM Domain entry
already exists in EIM".

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE65585' :
----------------------------------
None.
