Thanks, Mike...!

But...  aaaaaaaargh...:-( !

And then again, I've heard folks say they had few, if any problems...?!?
Right...?

Is there any way of knowing, in advance, if I have the set up that's gonna
trigger all this ackus-morackas (sp? ;-)...

I have to have a decent idea how long this is gonna take.. and I doubt if
the time-estimates they give (I'm assuming they give, as haven't looked at
it, yet) are NOT gonna include time for this kinda stuff.

| Larry,
|
| I just did a V4R4 to V5R1 on a Model 720 on Thursday.  The
| pre-install stuff
| ran fine, but the install failed.  I wound up calling the support
| center to
| get it going again.....Wound up having to abort the automatic installation
| and install the licensed program products manually.
|
| >From the call and the install job log, it appears that something happened
| with the install of OS/400 Optional Part 3 (Extended Directory Support).
| >From there, the system hung and nothing happened.
|
| The workaround was to go to manual mode and force the system to do an IPL.
|
| Once IPL'ed to the B side in normal mode, I used Option 11 on the LICPGM
| menu to load all the products that were flagged as *ERROR or *BACKLEVEL.
| Once those were on, I went and got the stuff that was set in the Install
| List so that I had everything.
|
| >From there it was on to the CUME, HIPER Group PTF's, and DB2 Group PTF's.
|
| You are not alone, I know of a 730 that had the same
| problem...........From
| what we concluded looking at the install job log,  something happened
| installing Optional Part 3 of OS/400......I have had the same problem with
| installs at V4R5 and V5R1 just as you have.
|
| Keep me in the loop if you get more info.  I'll do the same........
