System i Navigator Index Adviser
An administrator has a new, local, IP-based printer that is not communicating with the system. Ping is successful using the printer IP address and the printer name, and response time is acceptable. Users can print from Windows. What should the administrator do next to troubleshoot the printer?
Display the printer device description to confirm that the correct port has been configured.
What are the key benefits provided by database journaling?
Can send updates concurrently to a second system Can back out incomplete transactions and commitment controlCan maintain database integrity in the case of an unexpected outage
Which command is used to turn off the front panel attention light for an IBM i partition?
STRSST (Start System Service Tools)
A new IBM i system is being set up as an FTP host for downloads. The administrator sees that the devices connect properly, but the directory commands fail and IFS files cannot be downloaded. What can the administrator do to correct the problem?
Change the FTP server's initial name format to *PATH.
An administrator issues the WRKSYSACT command on a system partition using dedicated processors and the following result displays: Current processing capacity 2 What does the current processing capacity value indicate?
The number of processing units currently assigned to the partition.
Which special authority is required to install PTF5 on a system with the QSECURITY system value set to 40?
An administrator has been asked to create user profiles for4 operators. In addition to adding each operator's user profile to the GRPOPR group, which sequence of actions will enable the operators to perform their functions, while maintaining the best possible system security?
Create a user profile (GRPOPR) with a user class of *SYSOPR Create a profile for each operator with no special authority
An administrator is using *BASIC assistance level. A new user profile is created using option 1 - Add, from the Work with User Enrollment screen. Additional special authorities need to be assigned to the profile. When creating the profile, the administrator does not see available parameters to complete this task.

Start performance collection using System i Navigator, save the collection library and restore it to another system with a valid Performance Tools key.
An administrator needs to install third party software into an iASP environment. The installation is failing when the program provided by the software company attempts to create and restore library objects. What is the most efficient way for the administrator to install the software while maintaining the command integrity of the system?

Reset the console device ID, change the adapter address and recreate the Operations Console connection.
After an abnormal IPL, jobs that are accessing some files for the first time are spending an extended amount of time in a status of "IDX" and are taking longer to complete. Which command should be used to enable all pending access path rebuilds to be analyzed, prioritized, and immediately executed rather than waiting for first access?
Where in IBM i Navigator can suggestions for improved database performance generated by the system be viewed and implemented?
A save file named SAVE in library QGPL contains only .bin files saved from an IFS directory. Assuming the necessary parent directories are present, how can the administrator restore the .bin files to a new directory named DIR 1?
Use the DSPSAVF command to rind out the OLDDIRECTORY directory name, then restore the bin files using the command RST DEV(`/QSYS.LIB/QGPL.LIB/SAVE.FILE') OBJ((`/OLDDIRECTORY' INCLUDE `/DIR1')).

The administrator needs to see if there are any indexes the Query Engine is calling for which have not already been created. How can the administrator ensure that only the new index requests will be shown in the Index Advisor panel?
Right click on Database > Index Advisor> Index Advisor> Clear All Advised Indexes.
An administrator is attempting to restore an application compiled at IBM i 6.1 to a production system running IBM i 7.1. While other programs compiled at IBM i 6.1 restored without issue, one program fails to restore on the production system even though it successfully restored to the test system.
