I am just putting it here what I understood from your mail.

For S10 Model:- you want me to change the QDATE Value to 99.12.31 and check
the next day about the system behavior. Shall I do the Scheduled IPL the
next day and See? And as per your mail, you mean the system will give lot of
Application error rather than the System Errors ...pl..confirm.

For E50 :- I 'll have to upgrade my System at least to V3R2M0 to make the
system a Y2k compliant .... Right ? and no other S/W or H/W upgradation is
required ! .

Please confirm.

Thanks
Ravi

        message: IBM claims that V3R2M0 is compliant, and that V3R1M0 is
not. Exact what and why I don't know (does a list exist?).

        Expect greater problems with your application software if it is in
any way complicated or not very new.

        Coming to Confirmation: You can do a CHGSYSVAL QDATE and hope to
find (and fix) as many problems as possibly, but you can't find all. After
all it's the nature of our job: There will always be a problem to work with,
even after 99.12.31, though in my work 80% of the problems found during Y2K
testing was old non-y2k problems. Fortunately we often decide not to solve
all of theese, so if the unfound y2k-problems will be few, there is enough
to work with anyway.

        After testing, change the date back and do an IPL with a
scratch-install. Everything - not just data used in the test - need to be
reinstalled.
