We use MKS Implementer to promote changes from our development lpar to other lpars. They use FTP to transmit. They are assuming the NAMEFMT 0 environment. How do I set them up to work?

Rob,

How are you wanting to integrate with MKS? GAMFT can connect and transfer files between servers easily. It can insert records into a DB2 table as well as the IFS.

Are you wanting GAMFT to do the transfers of updated files/tables? Are you wanting to just push data? What are you looking at doing?

Currently MKS (now known as PTC) uses roughly the following FTP script:
USERID PASSWORD
BINARY
CD /QSYS.LIB
QUOTE SITE NAMEFMT 0
QUOTE RCMD CRTLIB RMTLIB
QUOTE RCMD CRTSAVF RMTLIB/RMTFILE
QUOTE RCMD CLRSAVF RMTLIB/RMTFILE
PUT LOCLIB/LOCFILE RMTLIB/RMTFILE
QUIT

What do we need to set up in their account to allow them to execute this script?

Rob,

I'm not an MKS or PTC user, so what would be needed from their product, I do not know.

You can run a GAMFT workflow from a remote server (iSeries, Linux/Unix, Windows, etc) using our GACMD.

You can setup a GAMFT workflow to accomplish the attached list of commands.

So, if you can execute commands from MKS or PTC .. then, you should be able to call a workflow and make that happen.

I do not believe that PTC would be willing to require all their customers using PTC to install GAMFT workflow on all their machines.
Therefore I need to figure out a way for someone coming from some other client to ftp into this machine and execute that script.
