Re: OS 400 upgrade



fixed

If you have OV/400 I would removed everyone from Office prior to removing 
OV/400.  Otherwise you'll have he!! to pay the first time you go to delete 
a user profile who was previously enrolled in office and office is no 
longer on the system.  There is a workaround but until we figured that one 
out we could not delete user profiles.

Curious, if one of these LPP's is Domino, and you remove that, then does 
it blast certain directory entries in the IFS that contain the list of 
servers, etc?  Are there any LPP's that might have similar IFS or other 
type entries?

Re: OS 400 upgrade






This requires a two step upgrade.  What I would do is as follows:

1.      DSPSFWRSC *PRINT to determine which LPPs you have on V4R5.
2.      Determine what are the correct LPPs for V5R3.  IBM keeps changing 
their names and designations to insure that they never get any name 
recognition.
3.      Double check that you have no improperly coded trigger programs. 
The best way to see which files have triggers is to do DSPFD to an output 
file, and query the output file.
4.      De-install all LPPs on the system except for QGPL and QUSRSYS. 
This will save you time in the long run.  When I de-install lots of LPPs, 
I submit batch jobs multi-threaded to do this in parallel.
5.      Get the latest CDs for V5R2, and install LIC, OS/400, QGPL and 
QUSRSYS.  Skip any PTF's unless required.  There is 1 PTF that you will 
need for V5R3 that comes with the V5R3 media, so put that on.
6.      Immediately install V5R3, and all required LPPs.  Do not say 
"Install All", because it will.  Tick off the LPPs that you want.  You 
will have to hang around during the LPP installs to "Accept License 
Agreements".  This is new for V5R3, so you may want to read up on it.  You 

cannot "Accept the License Agreements" in advance (preferred method) for 
the LPPs, because they weren't there.
7       Install PTFs and go.

It will be a long day.  I just did a V4R4 to V5R2 using comparable 
methodology, and it took 12 hours on a 720.  Based on speed of processor, 
it could take longer, because of "Accepting the License Agreements".

OS 400 upgrade






Is an upgrade from OS400 v4r5 to v5r3 a one step process, or does it 
require
an intermediate upgrade, for example v4r5->v5r1->v5r3?
