MailStream Plus on IBMi does nothing after CALL G1UI *SAVF command

Products Affected:  MailStream Plus™
Operating System: iSeries (IBMi, AS400, AS/400)

 

Issue

Trying to install MailStream Plus™ (MSP) from the internet download file installation.
After ftp’ing up to the save file, thsi command is run:
RSTOBJ OBJ(*ALL) SAVLIB(QTEMP) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(G1INSTALL/G1SVINSTL)
 
33 objects restored from QTEMP to QTEMP
Now the command:
CALL G1UI *SAVF
 
The install shows:   31 objects were deleted and now is back at the command line

The install stopped and didn't go any further.

Why is this happening?
 

Cause

Does the installer have SECOFR rights? No, *SECADM
The MSP install guide says this is ok - *SECADM
You do not need to be signed onto the system as QSECOFR to perform an installation.
However, you must have *SECADM or *SECOFR special authority

Resolution

UPDATED: March 13, 2019
But even if you have *SECADM it is looking for USRCLS.
The USRCLS was *PGMR, which is insufficient.
User must change it to *SECOFR
Then install again.
 
The issue was that the person installing didn’t have enough authority to do the installation. Once this was changed the install worked fine.
