        Subject:        Restoring to OS/400 V3R7

        I had upgraded my AS/400 to v4R1M0. But I need two information,
where do
        I obtain the liscence key as my As/400 is locked

        Secondly I tried to restore my AS/400 back to v3r7. I need the
        instruction of reverting back to the previous version v3r7. Is
        anybody who can give me detailed instruction or point out to me
        exact location where information could be obtained. Please donot
        the reply is RTFM


        Restoring back to a previous release once you have done an
upgrade shoule be an ABSOLUTE LAST RESORT.

        You will basically have to do a complete scratch install of your
machine, so you will need the FULIC (Feature Unique Licensed Internal
Code) tape, as well as a COMPLETE system backup taken prior to the
(presumably failed?) release upgrade.

        The steps in the Backup & Recovery guide for recovering from a
complete DASD failure (including the load/source drive - Disk Unit #1)
should step you through what's necessary.

        If your only reason for going back to V3R7 from V4R1 is because
of a problem with the license key, get on the phone to IBM immediately
and tell them you want the key IMMEDIATELY (but are willing to give
them, one hour).

        If it's the system password you are referring to, you should be
able to bypass this by doing a manual IPL and be able to run for 70 days
before you need to enter the password.
