| Subject: V5R1 Lic Pgm install failures
| Greetings to the highly intelligent Midrange community.

I dunno...  Perhaps you have a case of "list confusion" (ie posting to the
wrong list, by accident)...  LOL..!

| The last two V4R5 to V5R1 upgrades that I have done have each failed to
| install at least a dozen program products. I didn't keep the lists but
| in each case they were smattered all over from pieces of SS1 all the way
|   to XE1. In each case history log messages indicated the products were
| not copied from the media. LICPGM Option 5-prepare for install- had
| successfully located these products.  After failing during the initial
| install the use of option 11-install licensed programs for each of the
| failed programs successfully loads them no problem.
| Both of these upgrades were dual processor 820 machines with lots of
| memory and disk.
| Nothing in the archives, or on the iSeries pages.
| Thoughts? Similar experiences? I'm full of ****?

I'm getting ready to go to V5R1, myself, so would be interested in details,
maybe ferret out some gotchas.  Heard people post they've had no problems
with the upgrade.  Maybe it's what Andy said, and involves new versions of
some software.  Seems like sometimes (ex: CA/CAE) what appears to be a
re-install is treated like a new program product.

I will say that in 20 years, I've never had a problem with an upgrade until
V4R5.  Don't recall what it was.. but it surprised me.

Same situation...  Prepare for install ran fine.. Install didn't...
