RE: Version change



fixed

IBM has this figured out also.  There's something under the covers, I 
BELIEVE (ymmv), that will catch this.  I strongly suggest you do a full 
system save under V4R5 in case you want to be able to use this machine and 
your technique doesn't work.

Did you have software subscription on the 820?  If so you should have been 
able to upgrade to V5R2 then V5R3 without any IBM cost.

Thanks. I've heard about these 70 days. So each time I start my back-up 
system with the tapes saved on my V5R3 production system, I will have 70 
days to work with. That could help.

Regards.

You will need new keys.
Keys are Serialnumber, processortype bound!
Upgrading from V4R5 directly to V5R3 is not possible, you are only allowed 
to skip 1 release
V4R5 to V5R2  and then to V5R3
You don't need keys for V5R2 because you have 70 days tot get the keys and 
before that time you will upgrade to V5R3 for which you will also have 70 
days to get the keys, without the keys is will stop working after 70 days.

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.
