Internet Install Instructions
Note: If you prefer installing the software from a hard CD, most CD burner software will allow you to burn a CD from the downloaded ISO CD image file. If you want to take this route, refer to the install instructions in the user's guide.
To install iFileAudit on your system from the iFileAudit_CD_Image_613.iso file you received via E-mail or Website Download, please follow these exact instructions. Please note that these instructions can be used whether you are installing iFileAudit for the very first time or if you are upgrading an existing iFileAudit installation.
Considerations when upgrading:
Before you start your upgrade we recommend that you review the amount of history currently on file for your iFileAudit registered files. The upgrade installation may take a very long time if you have a lot of files registered and if there is a lot of history on file for some or all of the files. If you have files with a lot of history, consider purging those files before you start the upgrade. Also, if you have archived history when purging, you should remove the archive file members to backup tape before you start the upgrade as they will also need to be copied during the upgrade. The archive file is named FAANZARC in the library named FILAUD. DO NOT REMOVE the archive file, just the members.
Special consideration #1: If you are upgrading to Release 3 or higher of iFileAudit and your current installed version is release level 2.27 or earlier, this special consideration applies to you. Starting with Release 3, iFileAudit software authorization codes are tied to the combination of serial number and partition number. If you have a single partition license and you are running your system in partition number 1, then there will be no affect from this change. However, if you are have an LPAR license for iFileAudit and you have the software installed in multiple partitions, contact Kisco Information Systems before you start the upgrade process to obtain new authorization codes for all partitions. This also applies to customers who have a single partition license, but have iFileAudit installed in a partition other than partition 1.
Special consideration #2: If you are upgrading to Release 6.04 or higher of iFileAudit and your current installed version is release level 6.03 or earlier, this special consideration applies to you. Starting with Release 6.03, the way security is enforced for iFileAudit has been changed. Prior to this change, any user with *SECOFR authority on their user profile could use iFileAudit. Users without *SECOFR could be added as Admin users in the End User Table (option #8 on the INSTALL menu) and non-Admin users could also be entered there. Non-Admin users are granted access to read audit information but not to make any changes to iFileAudit.
With this change, Admin users other than QSECOFR must be enrolled as product admins in the End User Table before they can make changes to iFileAudit settings and registrations. This change was made in to strengthen the security of the audit information being captured by iFileAudit.
After installing this upgrade, you should check option #8 on the INSTALL menu to make sure that all user profiles that work with the software are properly listed. To use option #8, you must have Admin permission or use the QSECOFR user profile.
Special consideration #3: If you are upgrading to Release 6.05 or higher of iFileAudit and your current installed version is release level 6.04 or earlier, this special consideration applies to you. Starting with Release 6.05, iFileAudit captures decimal point placement for all zoned and packed decimal fields. Following your upgrade and before you run any new file analysis processes, you MUST run a file conversion for the current information stored in iFileAudit. Instructions for this conversion are included in the "Additional Documentation Topics" that prints during upgrade processing.
If you are using the Automatic Analysis feature in iFileAudit, make sure that you stop it (option #17 on the MASTER menu) before you start your upgrade. Use the WRKACTJOB command to verify that the IFILEAUDIT subsystem is not active.
When you have completed your evaluation of iFileAudit, you may purchase a permanent installation copy by contacting us and arranging payment.
If you have just completed installing an upgrade of your already active license for iFileAudit, please contact Kisco and advise them that you have updated to a new release level. Let us know the specific version that you have just installed so we can keep our records current about your installation.
