To simplify things, IBM has you do a SAVLIB(*NONSYS) to get everything over. Everything includes your data, and the IBM LPPs. It's easy, and it works. 2. Then, you have a RISC system with backlevel LPPs. Sounds stupid, right? No. Because, then you load the LPPs normally as you would do during a release upgrade. The LPP install process determines exactly what LPPs are on your system, and only loads the appropriate LPPs. Example, you could have a license to RPG, but might have deleted the RPG/36 options of RPG because you are not a S/36 shop. The normal LPP load process will figure this out, and only load what you need. Follow the roadmap, follow the roadmap, follow the roadmap.
