RE: V5R4 licenses



fixed

Yes it would. Again if it's a legit box, you can still get keys for it via
ESS. If the ownerships have not been maintained with IBM, out of luck.

But, "there's the rub". The OP didn't say that a save existed but rather
that they were attempting to access data.

Wouldn't a complete reload/initialize system destroy that data without
proper data backups?

but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic."--Tweedledee

save with the OS and LPPs will work.

By "reload" I take it that means a simple slip install won't cut it,
right? Like that documented in the "upgrading your system to the same
version of the OS" section of the upgrade manual? It's more of an save,
initialize disk and all, then restore; right?

In that case, when keys are this hosed, can you even do a new save or do
you have to rely upon the old one?
