Navigator allows you to edit IFS files with a simple text editor.
Last week I compared the features of the Integrated File System between Navigator for i and Access Client Solutions in Working with the IFS: Access Client Solutions vs Navigator for i. One key difference is with Navigator you can edit files in the IFS, while with ACS you can only view files. I had also previously written about the support to edit files in Navigator with the IFS Enhancements to Navigator for i article. Navigator allows you to edit IFS files with a simple text editor.

You can access the Integrated File System (IFS) using either the Navigator for i web console or Access Client Solutions (ACS). ACS added support to work with the IFS back in October 2016. There are differences between the capabilities; which interface you use will depend upon what you want to accomplish.

My last blog was an Introduction to IBM i System Limits and Maximum Capacities. In that blog, I introduced System Health Services, which allow you to track system limits. System limits tracking support is provided via Db2 PTFs, so be sure to install the latest Db2 Group PTF when you start to explore this capability. The limits tracked vary by release and Db2 Group PTF level.

If an IBM i system has one or more independent auxiliary storage pools (IASPs) available and a Backup, Recovery & Media Services (BRMS) control group with a *LINK backup item for ASP device *ALLAVL is used to save integrated file system (IFS) objects, a single media file will be generated. The media file will contain objects from the system ASP, user ASPs and IASPs. BRMS will produce a saved item for objects in the system ASP and user ASPs and saved items for objects on each of the IASPs. Each of the saved items refer to the same media file.

Last week, I wrote about latest Navigator for i Enhancements and the PTFs that you need to install to get the latest capabilities. In that blog, I mentioned that the cover letter for PTF SI47573 had some information about other enhancements that have been made. One of the items in that cover letter relates to the IFS and it states the following:

Navigator for i has had many enhancements over several years. IBM has not been the best at documenting the details of these enhancements; often the only place the details could be found would be in PTF cover letters. For example, if you review the PTF cover letter of the IBM Navigator for i service pack update SI47573, you will find the details of functions delivered in later 2012.
