The conversation I am replying to is over a year old, but I may have a need
to mix SBCS and DBCS in different LPARs of the same box. It is good to see
that it is technically possible, but I have one question for those who have
been there: how do you order OS/400 for that kind of setup? 

In my experience (so far), one orders a copy of OS/400 (and IBM LICPGMs) for
the whole serial number and with a single primary language feature, be it
SBCS or DBCS, and then any secondary languages that you need. That is your
copy of IBM software for the whole physical machine. If I am not mistaken,
the first couple of units of media (tape/CD) contain QSYS in that single
primary language only.

So how do you go about getting some partitions SBCS and others DBCS?
Wouldn't you have to order different OS/400 primary languages for each
partition, and how do you order multiple/different copies when the
partitions have the same serial number?

Or is it simply in the way that you install OS/400 on the various
partitions? I recall a screen where it asks you about your primary language
and you must be very sure of your answer (but I thought your answer had to
match what was contained on your media).

We have:
9406-720, 2 Lpars (1 SBCS, 1 DBCS) Development/test
9406-830, 4 Lpars (1 boot, 1SBCS, 2 DBCS) Production
  Upgrading the 830 to 890 next month, the 890 will have 8 lpars to
support more countries.
