The following options are required for silent installation:

To uninstall from the command line:

-u       Uninstall the product.

  2. Create a Save file in QGPL by entering the following command:

    CRTSAVF FILE(QGPL/ASNATEMPM)

  3. To upload the Save file from the PC, an FTP session must be started to the IBM i
  4. From Windows, select the START button, select RUN and enter the following command:

    FTP as400tcpipaddress

    where as400tcpipaddress is either a TCP/IP address such as 198.176.129.35, or a machine name that is registered either in a DNS or a HOSTS file.

  5. When prompted for a user name and password, enter the appropriate information that will give you privileges to upload data to the IBM i.
  6. Once FTP has been started, upload the Save file to the IBM i by entering the following commands:
    1. binary
    2. put x:\folder\ASNATEMPM QGPL/ASNATEMPM

              where x:\folder\ is the PC disk drive and folder where you unzipped ASNAMNRCH.zip

    3. quit
  7. On the IBM i, restore the library called ASNATEMPM from the Save file in QGPL by entering the following command.
