We have an i5 270 Machine with V5R4M0. When I tried to Start the HTTP Administration Admin Instance, The WRKACTJOB shows that Admin instance is starting, but a few seconds later Admin Instance Job ends. In the Spool of QTMHHTTP, QPJOBLOG says "Error occurred converting data. Reason 5." And Reason 5 is "The size of the converted data is greater than the receiver buffer length." We've 1.5 GB RAM for this Machine – is this not enough or is there something else that I should do?

Hi,

Have you applied all the latest PTF’s ? Sounds like something that a PTF should fix for you. I think this question has been asked here before.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    I ran this question by our Expert, Jim Mason, who gave this information: The memory is fine. It sounds like an apar. I'd check the iSeries Support site for a PTF for your system. Try applying the latest PTF cum tape download for your system and see if the problem is resolved
