For a variety of reasons yesterday we had to shut off access to the router that our iSeries connects to, we did this in an attempt to prevent a full shut down of the iSeries.
Today when we reconnected the network we still had issues connecting to the iSeries. So we went to the console and could connect there.
So, I found instruction on how to get the status of the network:
GO CFGTCP OPTION 1 (at the menu)
and the IP address shown above indicate an error message RCYPND on our main connection. So we looked at the help and followed the instructions for getting to the CFGTCPSTS found our connection and tried to vary it on. We got a message that it was already varied on. So we decided to vary it off and then back on. And that's where we are stuck now.
We get a message on the console that we need to answer a message to QSYSOPR except we can't get out of the CFGTCPSTS screen where we tried to vary off the device.
Can anyone give me a clue how to get to the QSYSOPR message from the console when it is locked on another process?
