Re: Questions about migrations between power5 and power7 And, re-spin/resave



fixed

It's been a while since I've done it...

But first step would be to order the upgrade through ESS...

At that goes though, the resave images should be available on ESS for
download....

In other words, you don't have to specifically request the resave
media on for a new order.

The keys will be on ESS also after the order goes through.

Try to order the 7.1 resave media.

After that is done try to download the keys from "Entitled Software
Support" under "Key management".

I concur with the fact that it's not much work to go up to 7.1 instead
of 6.1 but, my question about licensing remains: Does a 720Express
with current SWSA and with keys for 6.1 automatically get keys for
7.1? i cited the case of a friend in which they got the dvds (from
IBM), but since the keys are delivered via the website we couldn't
confirm if they got the keys (i came along after the SWSA ended)...

Going to 7.1 now would give them a longer period of "not broken don't
fix it" before they are forced to upgrade again.

Not to mention that some of the features of the POWER7 hard can only
be taken advantage of if you're running 7.1.

but i doubt they will go 7.1 even if they
can (there is a big "not broken? don't fix it" here in Arg).
