Michael,

In most cases, as Peter said, you are better off sticking with the normal
upgrade process.  

One option to consider... use the normal process on your first AS400, test
it with your applications, apply any additional PTF's you may need (those
not on any standard cum)  and then cut your own Re-Distribution tape(s).  

You can then use the standard upgrade process using your Re-Distribution
tape instead of the IBM CD's.  See the help text and manuals for the
following options on the LICPGM menu:

Redistribution                       
  40. Create a distribution tape     
  41. Work with installation profiles

In this way, you upgrade all your systems with the "standard" IBM process;
but use a "golden" distribution tape.  This will help you keep all your
systems at the same level.

Regards,
Jerry Jewel
