I am working with a client who is running BPCS V4.0.02 on an iSeries OS V7R1. They are planning to install OS V7R3 in April 2018.Is anyone aware of any compatibility issues running BPCS V4.0.02 with OS V7R3? They are not on support from Infor.
I searched for compatibility issues with BPCS and OS V7R3 andfound the link below from IBM. https://www-03.ibm.com/support/techdocs/atsmastr.nsf/WebIndex/TD106408 There
are several IBM PTF’s that are referenced that should beinstalled for the OS. Most apply to BPCSV6.1 and higher. However, there is onereference below about BPCS secured programs that fail to convert starting atIBM OS V6R1 and references BPCS V4.0.05 CD. They are on V4.0.02 which is similar.
VariousBPCS and LX programs do not convert to V6R1 AffectedBPCS versions: LX 8.3.0, 8.3.1, 8.3.2, 8.3.3, 8.2.00, 8.1.00, 8.0.00, 6.1.00,4.0.05 CD Startingin IBM i 6.1 many secured source programs fail to convert to the new operatingsystem because they are not observable. Obtain BMR 73619 and BMR 73684 toinstall updated copies of these objects. A new license key is required when installingBMR 73684.
They are already past that OS version since they are on OSV7R1. I believe that they would have hadto install the BPCS BMR’s referenced when they were still on Infor maintenanceand they installed a new iSeries 2 years ago. A new key had to be installed. So, Ibelieve that they should be OK since I don’t think that there are objectconversions from OS V7R1 to V7R3.
Thanks very much.
