A smaller 520(4 drive-8gb) can be done in about 8 hours but the ptf process can go on forever.
Assuming no major glitches, a weekend ought to do it.

The above is a very basic system running all rpg apps, and no lpars, no web stuff.
The more complex, the longer she will take.

Make sure you are "very" current on ptf's and order the current cume for V7R1
a wee bit before the install.

Having a "in place" software support contract is also very important for those
nasty little surprises that do come up.

We are in the planning stage of migrating from V5r4 to V7.x loaded to a new server. Is anyone willing to share their time line related to testing this process? My boss is under the impression we can do this "cutover" over the weekend without any prior testing on the new server / OS. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
