Network Computer Division 2
Notes
The purpose of this session is to familiarize you with the installation of IBM Network
Station Manager Version 2 Release 1 on the AS/400. However, since this is an
introductory session, it is important that you read the appropriate chapters of the Installing
IBM Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual, SC41-0684.
During this session, a number of different topics will be discussed. As shown on the
Agenda foil, I will first be describing the software which is required to boot IBM Network
Stations from an AS/400. For those of you who have installed Version 1 Release 3 (V1R3)
of Network Station Manager, I have included a foil listing the key differences in a V2R1
installation. Subsequently, I will introduce you to the pre-installation and installation tasks
which you should become familiar with. If you currently have V1R3, you will be sure to find
the migration information useful. I also felt it was important to discuss the new graphical
Network Station Setup wizard which replaces the V1R3 'green screen' Setup Assistant
menus. I will then end this presentation with a summary foil of 'How to Get Started' and a
list of useful sources for more information.
Let's begin by looking at the software requirements.

Network Computer Division 4
Notes
As you can see on this foil, there are several software prerequisites needed to support a
Network Station boot environment on your AS/400.
In addition to having OS/400 V4R2 (5769-SS1) or later with the OS/400 Host Servers
(option 12) installed, your AS/400 must have the TCP/IP Connectivity Utilities (5769-TC1)
product installed. The TCP/IP Connectivity Utilities product ships automatically with
OS/400 on the media from IBM. Also, if you have a V4R3 or V4R4 AS/400 then the
product IBM HTTP Server for AS/400 (5769-DG1) is required.
After the above prerequisites have been met, the IBM Network Station Manager for
AS/400 product (5648-C07) must be installed. However, the 128 bit IBM Network Station
Manager for AS/400 product (5648-C08) is an option available to customers in the USA
and Canada.
A new graphical based Network Station Setup wizard, which will be discussed later,
requires a PC with Client Access Express V4R4M0 installed. In addition, the Client
Access Express Service Pack 1 or later must be installed and the AS/400 NetServer
server must be started. Finally, the Network Component of Operations Navigator is also
required.

Network Computer Division 6
Notes
As I just mentioned, the graphical Network Station Setup wizard is new with V2R1 and it replaces the
V1R3 command STRNSSA (Start Network Station Setup Assistant). In addition, the Network Station
Manager for AS/400 V1R3 can coexist on the same server with Network Station Manager V2R1. This
coexistence may be necessary; for example, if you are currently using twinax Network Station models.
Although V2R1 does not support the twinax models, existing users of them can still get theV1R3 functions
that they are accustomed to since V1R3 can coexist with V2R1.
For those of you who have installed Network Stations in the past, you know that when the Network Station
Manager for AS/400 product is installed, the AS/400 Integrated File System is used to hold much of the
code, preference files, and so on. In V2R1, the new base directory is NetworkStationV2 instead of
NetworkStation.
A new V2R1 capability allows the selection of one or both of the following options in the RSTLICPGM
command: *BASE and Option 1. The *BASE component must be installed to support Series 2800s and
Series 2200s. However, if you will be supporting Series 1000s and/or Series 300s, then you must also
install Option(1) using RSTLICPGM.
Another new aspect of the V2R1 installation is the Migration Utility. This utility will be discussed in more
detail later.
Customers in the USA or Canada also have the option of installing the 128 bit Network Station Manager for
AS/400 product, 5648-C08 in addition to the 5648-C07 product.
Lastly, the V2R1 release can be ordered on CD via a part number and will not be available for download
from the Internet.
Before we discuss the installation tasks, let's take a look at some pre-installation tasks.

Network Computer Division 8
Notes
As I mentioned before, you should obtain a copy of the manual Installing Network Station
Manager for AS/400, SC41-0684. Although this manual should ship with your software
CD, you can view it online or download it from the web site: www.ibm.com/nc/pubs.
Certainly, another critical step is to ensure that you currently have or plan to migrate to a
supported OS/400 version like V4R2, V4R3 or V4R4.
If we turn to the hardware area, you will need to decide which models of the IBM Network
Station you will be using, will you need Token Ring and/or Ethernet Network Station
models, and will you need LAN hardware? It is also very important to determine the
required Network Station memory size; this size will vary depending on the applications
that your users need. V2R1 memory sizing information can be found online at the
www.pc.ibm.com/support web site by selecting the 'Network Station' brand and searching
on 'memory'.
Finally, you will need to order V2R1 of the IBM Network Station Manager for AS/400
product and optionally the 128 bit 5648-C08 product (if you are in Canada or the United
States). Ordering information can be found on the web site www.ibm.com/nc or in the
V2R1 announcement letter. Essentially, the V2R1 release CD can be ordered via part
number through either IBM Direct, your local IBM Representative or Business Partner.
There are different part numbers for the software CD depending on your geography,
Network Station models being used and platform. For example, customers in the US and
Canada who will be using Series 2xxx models in their AS/400 environment can use the
part number 30L9882 to order IBM Network Station Manager V2R1 for AS/400, 5648-C07.

Notes
In addition to ordering the V2R1 software, you should obtain the latest V2R1 service
information. The latest service news regarding PTFs, etc. can be found by selecting
'Support' and then 'Hot News' at the www.ibm.com/nc web site.
If you do not already have a current diagram of your network, please obtain one since an
understanding of your TCP/IP network will prove very helpful during the implementation of
IBM Network Stations.
If you are new to TCP/IP, implementing a TCP/IP based network may seem to be a very
challenging task. Although planning for and setting up a TCP/IP based network is not a
trivial effort, there are sources of information which can be helpful. In particular, the
TCP/IP Fastpath Setup manual can be very helpful in getting started, especially if your
network is relatively simple. In addition, more information can be found in the Installing
Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual (SC41-0684) and the TCP/IP Configuration
and Reference manual. Although the Network Station related manuals can be found
online at the www.ibm.com/nc/pubs site, the TCP/IP manuals are available online at the
web site as400service.ibm.com by selecting the 'Technical Publications' link.
Now that we've looked at a number of pre-installation tasks, we can go on to the
Installation Overview topic.

Network Computer Division12
Notes
After obtaining the Installing Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual (SC41-0684),
please read the appropriate sections to help ensure a smooth installation. One of the steps
in the Installing chapter indicates that you should obtain the latest PTF information by
going to the Support link on the www.ibm.com/nc web site and searching on 'PTFs'.
Alternatively, service information should be available online at this same site by selecting
the 'Support' link and then selecting the 'Hot News' topic.
As with Network Station Manager V1R3, there is a critical group PTF for V2R1 which must
be ordered. This group PTF, SF99083, will contain any prerequisite fixes and
recommended Network Station Manager for AS/400 PTFs. As the installation steps in the
manual state, any prerequisite PTFs must be applied before installing the Network Station
Manager for AS/400 product. Remember, it is very important to follow the steps in the
installation chapter of the manual, SC41-0684. These steps will walk you through the
installation of the Network Station Manager for AS/400 product 5648-C07 as well as the
optional 128 bit 5648-C08, if desired. After you have installed the product, you will then
use the SF99083 group PTF CD to install any recommended Network Station Manager
PTFs (or Program Temporary Fixes).
If you currently have V1R3 (5648-C05), then you will need to run the Migration Utility if
V1R3 will coexist with V2R1 on the same AS/400 or if you have V1R3 preference files to
migrate.
One of the installation tasks is to use the new graphical IBM Network Station Setup wizard
to finish the preparation needed on your AS/400 to support Network Stations. Since this
wizard will be discussed later, let's focus now on the Migration Utility.

Notes
As I just mentioned, the Migration Utility must be run if you are migrating from V1R3 to
V2R1 and/or if V1R3 and V2R1 will need to coexist on the same AS/400.
Migration to V2R1 from V1R3 of Network Station Manager for AS/400 involves migrating
the software release and preference files via the utility as well as migrating existing client
hardware, if desired. It is critical that you read the 'Migrating from V1R3 to V2R1' chapter
in the Installing Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual, SC41-0684. This chapter
discusses migration in general, migration considerations, running the utility and client
hardware migration.

For example, parameters specified can:
migrate everything (all users, groups, terminals, system preferences)
migrate all or specific users, groups, terminals
migrate just the system preferences
enable client hardware migration
Utility can be called multiple times

Network Computer Division16
Notes
It is important to note that the Migration Utility is not run automatically for you; you must
issue the command call pgm(qytcv2/qytcmumu) parm(parameters...) to run the utility.
The allowable parameters are documented in the migration chapter of SC41-0684. The
parameters are used to indicate the scope of the migration. For example, you might
initially want to migrate everything or you might want to migrate in phases. As shown here,
the parameters can be used to:
migrate everything (all users, groups, terminals and system preferences) or
migrate all or specific users, groups or terminals or
migrate just the system preferences and/or
enable client hardware migration
If desired, your migration from V1R3 to V2R1 can be done in phases since the migration
utility can be called multiple times. However, the V2R1 configuration and/or user data is
overwritten each time you run the utility.
In addition, the Migration Utility only goes one way ... from Version 1 Release 3 to Version
2 Release 1 and not the reverse.

Network Computer Division18
Notes
In addition to many other enhancements in V2R1, it provides a new graphical setup tool
called the Network Station Setup wizard. This Operations Navigator based wizard
replaces the V1R3 'green screen' Setup Assistant tool and requires a PC with Client
Access Express. In addition, a minimum of Service Pack 1 must be installed on Client
Access Express. Information on Client Access Express and the latest Service Pack can
be found online at www.as400.ibm.com/clientaccess/express.htm. After installing the
Service Pack, you must ensure that the AS/400 NetServer is started (through Operations
Navigator) and then use the Client Access Express Selective Setup to add the wizard
component to Operations Navigator. After the wizard component has been installed, you
can start Operations Navigator, expand the view for your AS/400 and then click on
'Network' followed by a right click on 'IBM Network Stations'. In the resulting pop up
window, click on 'Add Network Stations to AS/400' and then follow the screen prompts as
directed. More information on running the wizard as well as what it does can be found in
the Installing Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual, SC41-0684. However, let's go
to the next foil and see what the Operations Navigator looks like.

This final completion window indicates the various steps the wizard has taken and whether
they were successful or not. For example, you can see in this screen that certain critical
TCP/IP servers were set to autostart, directives were added to your HTTP server and that
the Network Station Login Daemon was started. The last item states that the configuration
and verification had completed.
Although the Installing Network Station Manager for AS/400 manual (SC41-0684) contains
a section listing what the wizard actually does, I have also included some of its key tasks in
the following foils.

Network Computer Division26
Notes
Although this is not an all-inclusive list, the Setup wizard can be used to configure and/or
verify the TCP/IP configuration on your AS/400. Items that it can create or verify include
your AS/400 host and domain name, host table entries, Domain Name Server identities,
interfaces, routes, gateways and lines.
Also, the wizard ensures that required TCP/IP servers such as TFTP (Trivial File Transfer
Protocol), HTTP and Telnet are set to autostart when TCP/IP starts. This is done by using
the Change Attribute commands shown here.
In addition, depending on if you choose the DHCP, BOOTP or NVRAM boot method,
certain other servers may be set to autostart such as BOOTP or DHCP.

Notes
If you choose the DHCP boot method, the Setup wizard allows you to configure DHCP on
the AS/400 for use by your Network Stations. Another task that it does for you is to start
the Network Station Login Daemon server. This server must be active to successfully log
in to an IBM Network Station.
In addition, the wizard will set the appropriate 'retain server security data' system value for
you and add the correct, sometimes lengthy HTTP server directives. If any of you have
ever typed in HTTP directives manually and made a typing error, you can definitely
appreciate the fact that this wizard does it for you. The statements that are added for you
include Enable Post, Enable Get, the AS/400 HostName, and the Map, Pass and Exec
statements.

Notes
After the Setup wizard has completed successfully, certain tasks should be considered.
If you are running a back level of boot code on a Series 2800, for example one dated
3/31/99, you may need to manually change the NVRAM settings to update the Network
Station boot version before it will be able to successfully boot from the AS/400. Details on
this should be available by selecting the 'Support' link and then 'Hot News' at the
www.ibm.com/nc web site. Additionally, details on updating the boot code/monitor normally
can be found in the manual Using IBM Network Station Manager, SC41-0690 which is
online at the www.ibm.com/nc/pubs web site.
Also, if you will have V1R3 coexisting with V2R1 on the same AS/400, be sure to stop the
V1R3 Network Station Login Daemon by issuing the command call qytc/qytcusvr
('ENDTCPSVR ').
If you are using Series 1000s or 300s, ensure that DNS support is enabled through NSM.
Details on this can be found in the manual, Using IBM Network Station Manager.
Depending on whether you selected DHCP or BOOTP (instead of NVRAM), different
actions should be or may need to be taken. If you selected BOOTP, then you will need to
add Network Stations to your BOOTP table. The steps to accomplish this via Operations
Navigator are described in the 'After installation and configuration' chapter in SC41-0684.
This same chapter also discusses defining statically addressed Network Stations in DHCP.
For example, there may be a Network Station with a locally attached printer which needs to
be accessible on the network. If this is so, then a static address needs to be assigned to
that Network Station so its address does not change.

Notes
Speaking of printers, you will most likely need to configure printers in your Network Station
environment. For example, you may want to print AS/400 output to a local attached
Network Station printer. Details on configuring printers on the AS/400 can be found in the
'After installation and configuration' section in SC41-0684. In addition, the V2R1 redbook,
SG24-5844 (available online at www.redbooks.ibm.com) contains a chapter on printing.
Finally, there are steps you can take on the AS/400 to optimize the TCP/IP network related
performance of Network Stations. As shown here, you should increase the maximum
frame size parameter in your line description if possible. In addition, you should increase
the TCP/IP Send and Receive buffer sizes to 64000, increase the TFTP block size and
possibly increase the number of TFTP server jobs if appropriate. These parameters are
discussed in the 'After installation and configuration' chapter of the Installing IBM Network
Station Manager for AS/400 manual, SC41-0684.

Notes
Since this session was intended to be an introduction to the installation of IBM Network
Station Manager for AS/400, I have listed a number of helpful sources of information here.
Although the Network Station specific manuals are obviously very important, the web sites
and the online help have proven very useful to other customers in the past. In addition, I
will point out that there is a new redbook available, SG24-5844 which pertains to Network
Station Manager V2R1 on all platforms. This redbook, as with others, is available online at
www.redbooks.ibm.com. The Network Station related manuals are available online at
www.ibm.com/nc/pubs.
I hope you have found this session useful. Thank you.
