Version change



fixed

Hi all,

I would like to upgrade the version of my 820 from V4R5 to V5R3 to use it as 
back-up of a 520 and to test some softs. IBM told us it will cost near to 60000 
euros, that means more than to buy a new 520. OK, 820 is a P20 machine and 520 
is a P10 one. We didn't even ask what it will cost to upgrade our 830 which is 
a P30 machine. It's like IBM wants us to change all our material...

I have never done a system upgrade. Is it true that we need a special key to 
upgrade ? Does it mean software key is related to the machine id and to the 
version ? No matter if I have no maintenance on it. Isn't it possible to use 
the V4R5 key when loading a V5R3 from CD's ?

Thanks.
