What is the command to check OS version in AS/400

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Now,

The answer to your question is the following:

On your command line type DSPSFWRSC and with F11 you will see the Software Version of all the products installed on your iSeries.

I hope this answers your question.



The better way to check it is by using the command DSPSYS. You can get all the system details.

    DSPPTF will show the current release as well as the current Cumulative PTF Package (SF99540)

    If you do not have access to any of the commands suggested, you can check a program compile listing. It's on line 1 position 10-15.

    Work with Licensed Information (WRKLICINF) command on a green screen.

    it will display both the version and release.

    The "Answer" mentions 'DSPSYS'. There is no such command on most systems. It could be someone's custom command, but it doesn't seem useful in an "Answer"..

    If you want to know what OS level is installed, you can find out in your CL program by retrieving the first 6 bytes of data area QSS1MRI in the QGPL library.  It contains the current OS level in VnRnMn format.  You can also check it using the DSPDTAARA command.

    DSPSYS is part of the COZTOOLS product, i.e. not available on all iSeries.

    You can view the os version in spool files. Type wrksplf  choose any file and press option 5. In the first line you can see the version like V5R4MO like that.(V5R4MO IS MY OS VERSION YOU CAN GET DIFFERENT VERSION BASED UPON THE INSTALLATION BY THE COMPANY).

    Hello, you can write GO LICPGM, then option 20.

    If GO LICPGM is used, option 10 is much better than option 20. On most systems, the only useful info shown by option 20 will be the primary language and a note that "(No secondary languages installed.)" No OS info will be shown.
