our price after months of negotiating was $145,000.
they go by processor group as well and how many modules of BPCS you have..
we are processor group 10.
This was for high availability key, new production key and new development
for the security modules to take us to IBM V7 os for production and
development.. (not sure they had the code, we are BPCS 4.0.05 non-CD..
they were going to create the code??)

subject: [BPCS-L] BPCS 6.02 + CEA, upgrading from V5R4
We have been off maintenance for centuries.
We have ASSET, but only portions of the code have been extracted.
I understand that upgrading the OS has some issues, but I was away from
BPCS when there would have been much discussion about this.
I've done some searching here, but so far have missed any helpful guidance
for our situation.
I don't need lots of grimy details at this point - more like "there is no
way to make it run for x reason(s)" or "it can be done, but here is what
it will cost" (at a high level).

I was an early adoptee of IBM i 6.1. At the time we were running 405CD
and in the process of migrating to some flavor of LX. There were numerous
programs out there that did not pass ANZOBJCVN. I worked closely with
Infor to get these resolved. Before they themselves even had a machine
capable of running 6.1.
Now, we've been on maintenance like forever. We're the third customer
they ever had and the oldest they still have.
From what people have told me getting back in their good graces after
dropping maintenance will take something like your first born male child
and an organ to be named later. I suggest a stiff drink, giving them a
call and start negotiating. You'll probably spend more on Infor than you
will on the machine and OS.
Since I've kept up on maintenance and have not had to go through this pain
I have no hints or clues to offer you to aid you in this process.
