  1. Managing a MAPICS R7/R9 PowerLink Environment ruth.pharr@cistech.net (704)814-0007

  2. Agenda • Network distribution - Streamline the installation and update of Powerlink users • Security - Effective management of public and private user definitions • Link Manager - Managing clients is easier with the new features and information available: • Apply Fixes • Visibility of client status and connection • Diagnose and resolve issues with enhanced logging

  3. Agenda • Improve Performance - for XA Power Link and Integrator applications using XA diagnostics tools and iSeries Navigator functionality • Improve performance of remote clients - with the installation of auxiliary machines • Migration Considerations • Upgrade Assistant - Determine impact of XA updates to your custom code using

  4. Network distribution • Remote Locations • Predefine values used for installation • Host machine • Install location • Shortcut folder • User interaction with installation • Environments • Offline Installer • Network • CD

  5. Network distribution Navigate to the Installs URL Select to Set up Power Link for Network Distribution

  6. Network Distribution Choose the Operating System

  7. Network Distribution Creates install image that can be burned to CD or moved to a shared drive on your network

  8. Client Security • Identify Power Users • Public Views/Subsets • Normal Users • Private Views/Subsets • Copy User Definitions • Maintainable via HPS at Release 9

  9. Client security • MNTTEMP • Release 9 • Create temporary user definitions for their own use • Cards, card files, presentation schemes, subsets, sorts, templates, views, workbenches and workspaces • Exists only during the current session • Available only to that user

  10. Client Security • Lock the function • Create User Group • Public Views/Subsets • Add Users to Groups

  11. Applying Updates • Environments can be at different levels • Immediate or staged • View Fix details • APARS • Enhancements • Incidents • Fix Servers

  12. Applying Updates • Immediate • Download at login • Staged • Updates in background

  13. Client Visibility User Profiles Workstations User Logins

  14. Link Manager – Logging

  15. Link Manager – Logging

  16. Link Manager – Logging

  17. XA Logging – Power Link Resolve Power Link issues

  18. XA Logging – Power Link • New business objects

  19. XA Logging – Power Link Task Logging

  20. Performance Tuning XA Diagnostics

  21. Performance Tuning • SQL Monitors • Job • User

  22. Auxiliary Machines • Supplementary processing and load balancing • Manual or Automatic • Fix Servers • Reduces Bandwidth for remote users • Each remote user downloads fix files from iSeries • Same files go over the network many times • The user will be connected to the best fix server when logging in

  23. Auxiliary Machines • Fix Server • HPS Server • Additional Net Link and System Link Servers

  24. Auxiliary Machines • Speed indicator on status bar shows connection speed • Right click the speed indicator to select an alternate fix server

  25. R7.8/R9 Migration • Migration effort is the same • Auxiliary machine is required for IDF level 1 • Database from Release 7 to Release 9 • Field Changes are minimal • Expanded Account number and quantity fields in some IFM files • Field Deletions are minimal • Audit stamp and menu information

  26. R7.8/R9 Migration • Database from Release 7 to Release 9 cont. • Access Path Changes • IMHIST • IFM and COM Files • File Deletions • MUI • IFM Menu Information • File Format Changes • IFM and COM

  27. Custom code, reports, queries… • Upgrade Assistant • Helps manage integration effort • File changes • Add/Change/Delete fields • Access Paths • Files no longer used • Hard Coding

  28. Upgrade Analysis Customizations

  29. Powerlink Quickstart for IT Professionals • On Site services combine education and implementation assistance • Learn, then do • Engagement Tailored to meet your requirements: • Link Manager Training 1 day • Performance Tuning 1 day • Client Security 1 day
