Patricia,

IBM has been charging for Media and Storage Extensions since V4.  This is
nothing new and we found out about it the hard way when we did a V3R7 to V4
upgrade.  It's not a new charge with V5R1.

Regards,

Mike Shaw

Has anyone heard about this?  What do you think?

IBM'S DECISION WILL COST YOU
We want to let you know about a decision that IBM recently made. When you
upgrade to OS/400 V5R1, you will have to license the IBM Media and Storage
Extensions (MSE) feature to run any backup and recovery software program,
including Robot/SAVE. This is because IBM has now included a necessary
tapeexit API in MSE. This API was FREE for many years. Now, IBM wants you to
pay for it. The license for this feature will cost you about $1,000 per
machine...... If
you would like to voice your concerns to IBM, write to Kimberly Stevenson,
Vice President, iSeries, Marketing, Server Group. Her e-mail address is
kantwell@us.ibm.com. She can reverse this decision, if she wants to.
