From the Admin Alert Archives: Speeding up i5/OS Access Path Rebuilds

I’ve been writing Admin Alert columns on IBM i administration for the IT Jungle Web site since 2002 (thanks, TPM). I figure there must be close to 500 of them by now, and I’m still producing them several times a month.

IT Jungle keeps the collected articles on the Admin Alert Web page. Every once in a while, I like to spotlight a prior article that still has relevance to the modern IBM i shop.

Here’s a piece from 2010 where I helped a reader with a problem where after a file reorganization, his production Web site jobs wouldn’t restart until all the access paths attached to a critical file were rebuilt. This article demonstrates an easy technique for speeding up access path rebuilds when you need to restart critical processing on your system.
