Are the two systems at the same tier? ie both P30's processor groups? And are you talking about IBM software or third party. Is the serial number staying the same? Some third party software you have to purchase for the new system other charge a nominal fee for the new license key, and other are no charge. If the Processor group stays the same or goes down, there should be no charges for the IBM licensed software.

Subject: Upgrade Question
We are looking upgrading our IBM i from a 550 to a Power 7 740. We are getting conflicting answers. One BP said that we would incur spending more for the software with the upgrade. A second BP said that there should no increase for the software.
What is the correct answer?
