Re: System 36 and Machine 36



fixed

Hi,

I do not look in to this old server as it is managed by another guy in company, but the migration came to me. According to my colleague its in v4r3 and having tcp card and he specially mention that its running on M/36 (as I know it's a 150 box)

Or my next option is let the current system run as it is and rewrite everything in new box and migrate data to DB2 files and let them use new application.

Thanking you

Ok, I am thinking if your old box has TCP/IP then it is NOT M36 but it is
OS/400 with the S/36 environment installed. Even the first AS/400's
didn't have TCP/IP. Can the box do any os/400 commands at all? Well,
duh, Rob, of course it does. If he can save it to save files it must be
S/36 environment and not M36.

If this is all true then your only problem should be if the programs have
observability enough to run on something higher than V5R4. Study
ANZOBJCVN.

Hi,

My old box have a tcp connectivity, I was thinking to use save files to
transfer data to power7 box and I'm having v4r3 in my old box.

I have the source codes of all old programs. So I guess that will b ok.

This is absolutely a source code migration. You can restore the files
and convert them as has been mentioned. The source code is required for
this migration as well as the S36 versions of the compilers. The S/36
OCL will run in the S/36 environment. If you have ALL of that then you
can do a migration.

You will need some flavor of tape compatibility to get that data moved
or a very old machine that supports M36 and then configure
communications between the M36 and OS/400 to move the stuff. Wow my head
hurts just trying to remember THAT configuration...

Chamara,

Like Rob, the good (well, fair) Doctor, and I have pointed out M36 is no
longer supported. In fact, according to this Tech Document, they will
not
even run:
