The recommended method would be to upgrade the system from V4R2 to V4R5 (yes you can skip this far in one step.) I would run at V4R5 for at least a couple of days to make sure that everything is running OK. Then upgrade from V4R5 to V5R2. Please make sure that you are current on PTFs on each release, and that you do a complete save of the system before and after the upgrades. (Use the SAVE menu, option 21.) It is possible to scratch install V5R2 on the system, install the necessary IBM Licensed Program Products, then restore the user data and programs. But this necessitates building the system configurations (directory entries, reply list entries, network attributes) from scratch, as well as loosing all the spool files on the system. (Spool files are not part of a save on the 400 - you have to use third party software if you want to save them.) Good Luck.

Our BPCS version is V3, somewhat modified and with a home grown Y2K implementation. Has anyone done anything similar recently and have any war stories to share? _______________________________________________ This is the SSA's BPCS ERP System (BPCS-L) mailing list To post a message email: BPCS-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/bpcs-l or email: BPCS-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/bpcs-l.
