Re: Upgrade woes



fixed

If the whole proble is a BPCS key issue then the memory upgrade/DASD is the only upgrade you could do that would not effect the system model number.
I believe that if you upgrade the interactive feature then you will change the model number which will mean you need a new set of software keys, both OS/400 and third party software.

there are lots of place that sell used memory. I have used:

in the past.

Hi again,

Does anybody know of a way to upgrade a 720 within the 720 range without ending up with no operating system?? I have a client in China who are maxed out on a 2062 and desperately need more memory and more interactive capacity. However they missed getting their upgrade order (to 2063) in under the wire when IBM recently decided not to honour OS keys when people upgrade old hardware. They can't upgrade to a newer box because they are stuck with the model their BPCS Key works on, unless they pay telephone numbers to SSA/Infor for a new key.
Any ideas?????

thanks,

Clare
