Re: Upgrade path



fixed

Was 1990. Maybe 1991. Too many years ago to remember that tidbit.
One improvement was when v2r2m0 came out management was fr more eager
to not have the previous mess repeated.

And, I think going throuh the process of asking this useless question
may have jogged tired bran cells. I seem to recall, now, that the
upgrade target was v2r1m0, which just might have been three instead of
two steps. Mind is too foggy.

Sorry about digging in the ancient past.

maybe back then you couldn't go direct, you had to do them in order. When
was this, 1989'ish I think.

Another ancient history type of question, unfortunately, but it is nagging
me.

Back in the last century, The B50 had v1r2m0 on it. We received tapes
from another State agency. All was well. Even after they upgraded to
v1r3m0. Then, they upgraded to v2 and we could not read the tapes
(SAVOBJ format, as I dimly recall). We were told, by our IBM rep,
that we would have to upgrade to v1r3, then do a second upgrade. A
lot of foor dragging, and then we were told we could upgrade directly
to v2. A night I still remember.

Does anybody know if we were initially misled by our IBM rep
concerning the n-2 upgrade?

This doesn't matter a hill of beans. But, it sure created a lot of
heat at the time.
