Upload and restore the installation files

This section describes the upload and restore options available for Transfer CFT 3.6 for the IBM i platform to perform prior to installation, using FTP and the RSTLIB command.

Before starting a Transfer CFT session, you must add the value *none in the initial program call to call a screen menu directly. Otherwise the session cannot start.

Note CFTPGM is the standard name for the programs library.

Begin the installation process by uploading the Transfer CFT installation package, in binary mode, to the IBM i system:

  1. Log in with the CFTINST user.
  2. Create a temporary library:
  3. CRTLIB CFTTMP
  4. Create a SAVF file:
  5. CRTSAVF FILE(CFTTMP/CFT36)
  6. Upload the installation package to the SAVF in binary mode using FTP:
  7. binary

    cd CFTTMP

    put Transfer_CFT_os400.bin CFT36

  1. Restore the SAVF file:
  2. RSTLIB SAVLIB(CFTPG) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(CFTTMP/CFT36) OPTION(*NEW) RSTLIB(CFTTMP)
