How to create a Minecraft server on IBM i 7.3

(By Tobias Haupt)

Step 1: install Java 11

Download B_GROUP1_04_IBM_i_RS_730-00 from ESS and burn it on DVD.

Start a new Terminal Session with ACS or HMC.

First ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED

Next GO LICPGM and then 11. Search for 5770-JV1 *BASE – install it.

Now we have installed the base enviroment for java. Next we have to install the Java11 package. For that follow the instructions on:

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/download-installation-and-usage-java-11-ibm-i-os

Next you have to install the PTF SF99725.

Now start a new SSH Session (when the connections will be refused, go into your terminal ans type STRTCPSVR *SSHD).

Create a new folder with mkdir /minecraft. Download the Server from https://getbukkit.org/ and copy it to the directory.

Change the current directory with chdir (F4) /minecraft <- This is really important, otherwise java is going to unzip the files in the root directory)

Test if the Minecraft server starting with RUNJVA CLASS(‘/minecraft/spigot-1.11.2.jar’) JOB(MINESERVER) (you must change the numbers to your version).

You shoud see this Window now:

Additionally you can create your own command to start Minecraft.
