When the installation is complete, you then can make the system available to your users. Do so only when you can answer yes to all the following questions:
Is IBM finished doing its part of the installation?
Have you created user profiles for all your users?
If you have decided to use manual configuration, have you turned off automatic device configuration and created device descriptions for all the devices you are connecting?
If the application software is required at this stage, have you installed it on your i5 server?
Have you physically connected all display stations and printers to the system?
Do your users really need access to the server? Are you sure they aren't asking for the i5 just to play with the "new toy?"
If all questions receive a yes answer, you need to vary on all display stations if they are not varied on already. To find out, run the Work with Configuration Status (WRKCFGSTS) command, as follows:
WRKCFGSTS CFGTYPE(*DEV) CFGD(*DSP)
The WRKCFGSTS command presents a panel listing all display stations in name sequence. The status column should read "SIGNON DISPLAY." If some or all devices don't show that status, enter an option 1 to vary on that particular device and press Enter. You can key in multiple 1s on different lines and press Enter. All devices marked in this way are varied on at the same time. When all display stations show the "SIGNON DISPLAY" status, they will show the sign-on display that allows your users to sign on to the i5 server.
