Hi Michael

It's not that difficuly and it's well documented in the Backup and Recovery
Guide. Look for "Previous Release-to-Current Release Support". You also need
to do a RTVSYSINF and UPDSYSINF to transfer system values.

I'd have to agree with Pete - I'm amazed this guy managed to get anything
working. Just shows how solid I5/OS really is to still be able to run at all
after that.

Regards
Evan Harris

Got it - when you said upgrade I was assuming something other than
install.

Makes perfect sense now. Thanks. Hope I never have to do it.... :-)

Don't bother looking it up. My teenager is the definition.

Mike,

The lic and i5/OS base will be at V5R4, but all the licensed
programs (5722-WDS, 5722-TCP, 5722-DG1, etc) will be at V5R2 (since you
did
the RSTLIB *NONSYS, you restored all those Q* libraries). At this point
you
do a GO LICPGM and do an install (option 11, not sure without a screen
in
front of me) and then run through the list and put a "1" next to every
licensed program and option you wish to install. Afterwards, install
the
PTFs, and you have a good V5R4 system.

Pete

Pete,

You had me until you mentioned "Then you do an upgrade to the licensed
products". How would you do that upgrade?

I'm just to0 darn boring and do the normal upgrade paths one release at
a time....

I think you are right about your evaluation.....

Motivation
If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you,
you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.

Mike,

We do this 5.2 to 5.4 type of upgrade for unsupported hardware
all
the time, so it is something that we are very comfortable with, but you
need
to understand a lot of issues as Chuck was alluding to in his note
earlier
today. One of which is that you aren't bringing over QSYS, as that is
already on the machine with LIC, but nothing else. Then you just
restore.
You have a 5.4 machine with LIC and QSYS and nothing else, you restore
the
User Profiles, Config, NONSYS (which includes QUSRSYS will see back
level in
GO LICPGM), the DLO, and the IFS, Then do a RSTAUT. Then you do an
upgrade
to the licensed products to get everything back to V5R4, allowing INZSYS
(and INZBRMPRD to run if you have BRMS) and everything is ready to roll.
Don't forget the PTFs & Object conversions. But any changes to objects
on
the source machine that were in QSYS are lost and don't come across.

So, here is the SA who doesn't understand GO SAVE 21 but he is
trying to restore onto another version. This guy was *SCREWED before he
plugged the machine in. No, wonder things didn't restore correctly. I
am
amazed he got as far as he did.

JMHO
Pete
