Open ports for ODBC

One user writes, "We had a power failure in the morning when there was no one was on site. The iSeries shut down and then IPL'd when the power was restored. When the offices opened for business, the users were unable to do any ODBC functions. The iSeries TCP servers were restarted and then they were able to perform their ODBC functions. I'm wondering what TCP servers on the iSeries need to be started for any ODBC functionality to work?" Connectivity expert Shahar Mor responds.
