How to determine the IBMi operating system release for CODE-1 Plus troubleshooting purposes

Operating System: IBMi
Products Affected:  CODE-1 Plus

Logon to the IBMi machine and type ‘signoff *list’.  This will create a job log to the output queue. The output spooled file will be called qpjoblog. On the first line of the file you will be able to see the OS level. Here are the exact steps:
  • Log on to your IBMi machine
  • Type signoff *list on the command line (you will be logged off at this point)
  • Log in again
  • Type wrksplf to see your spooled files
  • Press F20 to include system output (this will show the job log at the bottom of the list and may be named as the terminal name "Work with Printer Output” rather than “Work with Spooled Files”)
  • Use option 5 next to the last QPJOBLOG file.

The first line will look like the following and will display the IBMi version:
 5770SS1 V7R2M0 140418                           Job Log
  Job name . . . . . . . . . . :   QPADEV000K      User
