The QINAVMNSRV job

Troubleshooting


Problem

What is job QINAVMNSRV in QSYSWRK subsystem?

Resolving The Problem

The job QINAVMNSRV is a daemon job for IBM i Navigator monitors.
It was introduced at OS/400 v720 via PTF SI53771 which was included with HTTP group PTF (SF99713) level 5, released 12/23/14.
The APAR that describes these enhancements is SE59467.

The job will be active as soon as L1C (Level one Console) is started (STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)).
It will run even if no monitors are active.
It will remain active even when the L1C is ended.

While it is running, it holds file locks over several log files. The files are located in directory:
   /QIBM/ProdData/OS400/iSeriesNavigator/config/MONITOR.

To release the locks, it will be necessary to end the QINAVMNSRV job with the following command:
CALL PGM(QSYSDIR/QINAVMNSRV) PARM(*STOP)

Starting the L1C again with:
STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)
...will cause the QINAVMNSRV job to be started.
