        Subject:        Re: OS/400 Upgrade V4R2 to V5R2

Going from V4R2 to V5R2 is a large step, almost impossible to do in just 
one step. 

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.

We're looking at upgrading our AS/400 9406-600 from V4R2 to V5R2. 

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?
