To specify a different subsystem or port number for your Showcase server you will need to add and remove Showcase TCP/IP using the steps below.
Starting in Showcase 9, there are new parameters in the ADDSCTCP command, where you need to specify the RMI & Firewall ports along with the Host Name.
- Logoff / logon to the iSeries with a clean session using a QSECOFR profile.
Add your Showcase Server library to the library list with this command (where <scserver> is the name of your Showcase server):
On the iSeries run this command (where <scserver> is the name of your Showcase server) to end your Showcase server:
Issue the following three commands (where <scserver> is the name of your Showcase server) to verify there are NO locks on your Showcase Server Library and END any jobs that have locks on these objects.
WRKOBJLCK OBJ(<SCSERVER>) OBJTYPE(*LIB)
WRKOBJLCK OBJ(<SCSERVER>/SCCONNECT) OBJTYPE(*USRSPC)
WRKOBJLCK OBJ(<SCSERVER>/SCASSIST) OBJTYPE(*PGM)
Verify what port numbers you are currently using for the following ports and make note of them before running the RMVSCTCP command, as these ports will be specified within the ADDSCTCP command. To verify the port numbers use the WRKSRVTBLE command on the iSeries. You will see something similar to the following:
SCFIREWALLSCSERVER 43901 TCP
SCRMICOMPSCSERVER 43902 TCP
SCSERVERSCSERVER 43900 TCP
Remove SCTCP by running the following command: Note: Replace QCMN with the correct subsystem that your Showcase Server runs in.
SCSERVER/RMVSCTCP FRCRMV(*YES) SBSD(QSYS/QCMN)
Add SCTCP by running the following command: Note: Replace “*DEFAULT” with the correct Subsystem that your Showcase Server runs in OR where you want the Showcase server to run in.
SCSERVER/ADDSCTCP (press F4)
The following parameters appear:
Subsystem for TCP server jobs . *DEFAULT
Library . . . . . . . . . . .
TCP Port Number . . . . . . . . 43419
Firewall Port Number . . . . . . *NONE
Compressed Data Firewall Port . *NONE
HostName . . . . . . . . . . . . *TCPCFG
For the following:
Subsystem for TCP Server Jobs: Specify the Subsystem that your Showcase Server runs in OR where you want the Showcase server to run in.
Library: Specify Library where the Subsystem runs in.
TCP Port Number: Specify the port number you want your Showcase Server to be connected to OR use your existing Showcase port number if you are just changing the Subsystem where Showcase server runs.
Firewall Port Number: Specify the port number specified from step 5 above.
Compressed Data Firewall Port: Specify port number specified from step 5 above.
You should receive following message: 'Showcase TCPIP support successfully added.'
- If the ADDSCTCP command completed successfully, the server will attempt to start.
- Verify your Showcase server started by running WRKACTJOB command.
