AS400 TCP-IP not working after power cut

When you have a problem connecting to the AS400 server after a power cut / power surge the most likely culprit is the network card.

The first thing you should check is obviously the connection m reboot switch, check id cable is correct, then check if lights on the network card is on. if it is on than enter directly on the server, click on GO TCPADM m there you can choose the various options the first one being 5 and eneter when selected *ALL .

If the lights are off first the last steps and if still not working than open the server , take off the network card and reinstall it, then back to the process on top. but if the lights on network card still not on than the most likely is the card is done for.

Rememeber to be very patient as it can take upto 30 minutes for the server to work fully.

Update: another step to do before takeing the network card and putting it back in is to go from main menu WRKLIND put number 8 next to ethline option , if it is active than first deactivate puting number 2 next to the first line ethline and number 1 to activate once it is changed, pressing F5 will refresh the page.

Sage 100 install in Windows server

When installing sage 100 in a server please note the following important things. – After installing the program the test database might not work if you you buy the basic pack, as you might need pack + to make it work. in that case you can ask your distributor to just put in the license of a pack + open the database, than change the license again. The reason why it doesnt work is simply because pack + has the option of various warehouses per business , so once you make it work for the first time with the correct license you can disable multi warehouses and make it work, than change the license again,. – After installing the program make sure the shortcuts and database information is stored on a seperate folder under the root or d: drive than share it as otherwise when installing new computers that connect to the sage 100 through the network not terminal server would not be able to connect. – Make sure that manually you change all the shoortcuts to show name of server \ the shared folder. if you go through the route like d:\\users\folder name it wouldnt work . – How to install on other computers coming in a post soon!!!
