RE: OS 400 upgrade



fixed

Hello,

I will have something similar to do soon : Migrate from a 820 in V4R5 to a 520 
in V5R3 (of course). Does it mean I have to migrate my 820 first in V5R2 before 
saving and restoring on 520 ? Is there a simplier way in my case ? I thought I 
could simply start my 520, install LIC, OS/400 and LPPs, configure network and 
then restore CFG, PRF, *NONSYS, DLO,... from 820.

Thanks.

This is not quite true, the "required PTFs"  that  come on an extra 
CD-ROM give you
a menu similar to those upgrade preparation menus when converting from 
CISC-to-RISC.
You are able to accept the license agreement(s) from there in advance 
and I didn't
need to babysit that upgrade to press the F14-button to accept them on a 
one-by-one basis.
There was a memo to users describing that process.

HTH, Philipp
