RE: V6R1 to V7R1 i5/OS upgrade questions



fixed

I do it all the time. Let me give you an example. I have special PTFs to apply before applying the latest cumulative, so I do a CHGIPLA start back in restricted, load the special PTFs, and then IPL. Now, I let the system load all the new PTFs, and IPL. Perfect example.

I always apply my PTFs first before doing the IPL which kicks off INZSYS.

I do not think that CHGIPLA to bring the system up restricted during an upgrade is recommended. When do you have it fire off the INZSYS? After the cume IPL?

Jobs remain in the job scheduler between OS releases.

Perhaps the best way is to do a CHGIPLA, and start the system up
restricted. This way you only have the console up and you can do what you
need after the upgrade (Like Apply PTFs, or do a full backup before
returning the system to the users). I wrote an article last month in my
System admin Tips and Techniques newsletter on just this:

1) Can future scheduled jobs remain in the jobq across a V6R1 to V7R1
i5/OS upgrade?
2) Is the simplest way to prevent AJS (Advanced Job Scheduler) jobs from
running during or after the upgrade is to hold or end the AJS monitor as
opposed to holding or omitting next run of individual jobs?

Thank You
