Before AS/400 fans ever even heard the term “iSeries”, IBM had already rolled out the integrated file system (IFS) to give IBM i users the ability to run applications that don’t follow the traditional library structure.
Today, IBM i shops use the IFS regularly for storage, web servers, applications, and more. Even the Windows IT team needs to access the IFS on IBM i for file exchanges! But with great power comes great responsibility—and many don’t have the knowledge or tools necessary to manage this technology.
During this live webinar, you’ll learn basic tips, helpful tools, and integrated file system commands—including WRKLNK—for managing your IFS directories and Access Client Solutions (ACS). We’ll answer your most pressing IFS questions, including:
- What is stored inside my IFS directories?
- How do I monitor the IFS?
- How do I replicate the IFS or back it up?
- How do I secure the IFS?
Understanding what the integrated file system is and how to work with it must be a critical part of your systems management plans for IBM i. If you don’t have the time—or the desire—to do it manually, we’ll also show you how HelpSystems tools can make it easy for you.
We look forward to having you join us on October 24!
