  3. Paste the RJSCONVERT/PRDSEC command in the iSeries command line.
  4. Press Enter.

    iSeries Report Converters is now installed and licensed on the iSeries.

Verifying an Existing License

  1. On an iSeries command line, run the RJSCONVERT/PRDINFO command to view your OS/400 level and your iSeries series, model and LPAR numbers. They will display at the bottom of your screen, in the format: OS/400 Level: ___ Model: ___ Serial#: _______ LPAR: _.Copy these values into an email.
  2. On an iSeries command line, run DSPDTAARA RJSCONVERT/RJSCONVERT to display your current license. Copy the license value to your email, as well.
  3. Send the email to RJS Software Technical Support at support@rjssoftware.com, with the above information, your name, and the name of your company.

Requesting a Demo/Disaster Recovery/Temporary License

You can get temporary licenses, free of charge, for demo and disaster recovery purposes, or by arrangement.

  1. Get the serial, model and LPAR numbers for the system you want to license.
    1. If you've already installed RJSCONVERT, you can use the instructions at Verifying an Existing License, Step 1, above.
    2. Otherwise:
      1. If you are running OS/400 V5R3 or above, open the Electronic Service Agent menu (GO SERVICE) and take option 6 (Display service agent registration information). Your serial, model and LPAR information will display.
      2. If you are running OS/400 V5R1 or V5R2, run the STRSST command and login to get to the System Service Tools (SST) menu. Take option 5 (Work with system partitions) to view your LPAR number (referred to here as partition identifier).
        Alternately, you can use the system command DSPSYSVAL QSRLNBR to obtain your serial number, and DSPSYSVAL QMODEL to get your model number. If you do not know your LPAR number, you may need to call IBM and get it by providing your serial number.

Transferring Licenses

Since RJSCONVERT is licensed per LPAR, moving the library to another LPAR, even on the same hardware, requires a modified license. If you need to keep the old LPAR in production while the new LPAR is tested, request a temporary license using the instructions above for the new LPAR. Once you have removed RJSCONVERT from the old LPAR, use these instructions to obtain a permanent license for your new LPAR.

  1. Getthe serial, model and LPAR numbers for the system you want to license.
    1. If you've already installed RJSCONVERT, you can use the instructions at Verifying an Existing License, Step 1, above.
    2. Otherwise:
      1. If you are running OS/400 V5R3 or above, open the Electronic Service Agent menu (GO SERVICE) and take option 6 (Display service agent registration information). Your serial, model and LPAR information will display.
      2. If you are running OS/400 V5R1 or V5R2, run the STRSST command and login to get to the System Service Tools (SST) menu. Take option 5 (Work with system partitions) to view your LPAR number (referred to here as partition identifier).
        Alternately, you can use the system command DSPSYSVAL QSRLNBR to obtain your serial number, and DSPSYSVAL QMODEL to get your model number. If you do not know your LPAR number, you may need to call IBM and get it by providing your serial number.
  2. Copy the following template into a blank document:
    M DD, YYYY
    RJS Software Systems, Inc.
    PO Box 1408 Burnsville, MN 55337
