Once you have determined that there are PTFs available for your release of Strategi and you have received your

Once you receive your download authorization information from the BusinessLink
Technical Support team, you are ready to download.

in the "System Serial Number" input box|
||View all available PTFs|
||Click the hyper-link to download the PTF(s). You will be prompted to
||Log in using the BusinessLink supplied user and passphrase|
||If login is successful, you will be prompted to download the file
and either save it to disk or open it. Choose the save to disk option.|

program such as "winzip" and transfer the extracted file
(example:"SGI192C005") from your PC to your iSeries.
(For instructions on how to transfer a file from your PC to your iSeries using FTP,

PTF Installation Requirements
V5R4 and Earlier - V2R5M1 Cumulative PTF SGI251C066+
Check to see that IBM's "Portable App Solutions Environment" (Product Option 33) is installed, as it is required to support
Java on this OS/400 version
Once the save file is on your iSeries, the remaining steps can be performed.
Note: applying PTF(s) will result in the Strategi subsystem being restarted after PTF application. Multiple PTFs *can* be
applied simultaneously as long as the PTFs are restored to library QTEMP in sequential order.
||Verify Strategi Library is not locked|
||WRKOBJLCK OBJ(*LIBL/STRATEGI) OBJTYPE(*LIB)
The WRKOBJLCK command should state that there are no locks
on the Strategi library. If locks exist on the library, the locks must be removed before continuing.
||Clear out library QTEMP
||Restore the contents to library QTEMP|
||RSTOBJ OBJ(*ALL) SAVLIB(QTEMP) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF('current_library'/ 'PTF_file_name') RSTLIB(QTEMP)|
||Prompt the command QTEMP/SGIPTF and enter the
||Press 'Enter' to begin the installation process. The Strategi subsystem will restart
once the PTF has completed (V1R8M2 and higher have a RESTART parameter of *YES or *NO)|
||When you have installed the PTF, please notify the
BusinessLink Technical Support team via email at
email@example.com so that we can update our
records. This will aid us in servicing you in the future.|
