Questions about AS400/iSeries current and future support for robot/probes.

Support for IBM OS Series 7.5 for robots. 


Release : DX UIM 20.4.* / 23.4

Component : UIM - ROBOT




Q. Is Broadcom planning on continuing development for the AS400/iSeries probes or is the plan to 'end of life' (EOL) them?
A. We shall be supporting them on an as-is basis with updates around tech currency and security as required.

Q. Is support for iSeries version 7.5 planned? If so, when?
A. (As per March 2024) IBM OS Series version 7.5 certification is going to be released by the End of April 2024. (new robot will be published)

Q. Looking through the UIM probe compatibility matrix I see that all the iSeries-specific probes have been updated for v7.3/7.4/7.5. However, the other probes that can be used on iSeries (dirscan, iostat, and logmon) have not been updated. Will they be? If so, when?
A. We suggest testing those probes on iSeries V7R3 and if there are any issues please report them and we can open a defect.
Q. As of October 2023 the latest iSeries robot/robot_update seems to be mentioned in some Articles/community comments as version 5.77 (5.76)? Where can I get 5.77?
A. When you download the iSeries_robot_update v5.76 and deploy it, it should display as 5.77 as that's what it shows internally within the info.pkg file within the package.
