Managing AS/400 V4R4 with Operations Navigator

An IBM Redbooks publication


Operations Navigator brings a Windows-like graphical interface to configuring, monitoring, and managing the OS/400 environment. This book gives you insight into the wide range of AS/400 functions available through the AS/400 Operations Navigator graphical interface that comes packaged with AS/400 Client Access Express for Windows V4R4M0. It provides you with a moderate level overview of the AS/400 Operations Navigator’s interface and functionality, correlates Operations Navigator functions with corresponding OS/400 command functions, and, in many cases, gives tips on how to use these functions. This publication is intended to help two sets of AS/400 users who have some level of management responsibilities for an AS/400 system: those familiar with the OS/400 command level interface to system facilities and those new to the OS/400, but who are familiar with Windows-like graphical interfaces to system facilities.
