I have a client I just upgraded from V5R3 to V5R4 at the beginning of the
year in order to install their software company's year end updates. She
bought a new SWMA just for that purpose, with the intent to get upgraded all
the way to V7. The ESS portal is under the impression that she went from 5.3
I reminded her last week to contact IBM for the new keys, and this is the
response she got from Denmark:
As per our conversation I am forwarding you the Guidelines for the ESS
website. They contain the instructions for performing the upgrade.
Once you will have performed the upgrade to V7, please send back to us the
attached form, properly filled in every part, for the creation of LPAR keys.
I told her to call the people who helped her get the new SWMA and get the
keys from the Boulder office.

Sorry about that.
For others, on the positive side, all the more reason to move to 7.1 now
instead of waiting until "you need it".
