You should not get confused between OGS and your license. Unless your
contract is machine based there should not be a big financial burden to get
a key for the new machine. You do not need OGS for that although you might
have to push a bit harder.

If your contract is machine based than it is a different story since you are
than changing the 'usage' of your BPCS system.

Hello all,


We are running BPCS 6.0.04 on a iSeries 830, software level P30, OS rev

V5R2.  We are not on OGS.  I am examining my options regarding upgrade

of my iSeries toward the end of the year and am hoping to get some

feedback on what I can and cannot do with the box given that I will not

be able to get a new key from SSA.  


Our IBM reseller is telling me that I can upgrade to one of the new

boxes (520) and keep the same serial number while dropping to a P20

software level.  What they can't tell me with any certainty is whether

BPCS will run under the same license key.  Anyone have any experience

with this?
