The problem with the existing system value is that you only get QPRCFEAT.
In Pete's example, you get 206E, not 720/2062/1501.  The release letters
give you a table of 720/2062/1501 = P30, but you couldn't figure out what
206E means.  The old Configurator used to have a table that correlated
720/2062/1501 into 206E and from there into a P30 or whatever it is.  No
where could you find 206E translates to P30.

What a pain in the <neck>.

The processor group value lives in the box SOMEWHERE, because WRKLICINF
displays it.

Where????

I looked back in the Midrange Archives and saw a post from someone that had
to twist IBM's arm to get QPRCFEAT put in.  They (IBM) just couldn't see the
utility in it.  "Why would anyone possibly want a system value with such a
thing?"  Hmmmm... A box based on tiered price software and you can't figure
out what tier you're in.

Pete,

But that system value is OS release specific ? i.e. V4R5 ?

We are on V4R1 and don't have it...
