Release notes

EView/400i monitors the iSeries (AS/400) environment for important events and critical situations. These event and situation messages are communicated via a TCP/IP connection to the OMi management server.

On the Operations Manager server, EView/400i exploits the facilities of OMi including message templates and applications to process the iSeries messages.

EView/400i 7.0 provides support for Micro Focus Operations Manager i  (OMi) 9.0 and above.  This version is based on EView400i 6.3 with all software patches.   Note these changes from earlier versions of EView/400 required to support and integrate with OMU 9.0:  

1.  Motif related features of EView/400i are no longer available due to the removal of Motif support from OMU.  This includes the following features:

  • The mapping application that provides a hierarchical map of iSeries resources such as lines, controllers and devices is no longer available. 
  • The X-Windows iSeries command interface has been removed.

2.  The vp400elli process which handles automatic and operator initiated actions and Java management interface requests is no longer started by the ovstart command which does not exist in OMU 9.0.  The vp400elli process is now registered with the ovc process for starting and stopping.

EView/400i 7.0 has the following new features:

  1. The EView/400i web browser configuration application and monitoring applications are now based on Python rather than Java code. The necessary Python libraries are installed during the base EView/400i installation process.
  2. When running the iSeries agent installer (“CALL EVREL70/EVINSTALL”), press F4 to set up the default TCP/IP ports that are to be used to connect to the OM server.  If this install is upgrading an existing EView/400, the existing port numbers will not be changed.
  3. An additional parameter is available on the iSeries agent to choose which TCP/IP stack to connect to, if there are multiple TCP/IP addresses configured on the iSeries system.  
  4. An additional parameter is available on the iSeries agent to restrict which address(es) may connect to the agent.
  5. The iSeries Job Monitor has been enhanced to allow monitoring for jobs in CMTW and MTXW status.
