Migration from M36 to S36E, IMO, is an oxymoron.  Save and restore?  Sure.  
Why would you want to?  It's no different than migrating off an actual /36 to 
the 36E in an AS/400 environment -- except M36 runs faster.  The two 
environments don't even talk to each other unless you configure them just 
like a /36 talking to a completely separate /400.  Can you say "bill of 
goods?"  I thought you could....
