Dear Mr. Positive,

Crawl back under whatever rock you came out from. Why would you
write such things about i5/OS and Vista on a i5/OS discussion group?

I have more systems running V6R1 than I do Vista, and I have more
customers running V6R1 than they do Vista.

In my opinion, i5/OS isn't perfect, but it's pretty damn close.

Pete

I am waiting for my iSeries to run something truly new and useful like
Windows Vista!

Maybe it might be better to call the older versions "time tested"?

Had a vendor talk about a V5R4 bug that allowed saves but not restores. Neat

trick!

Planning on V6R1 any year now. Maybe when the econony improves...

Gee, two consecutive unrelated posts from people running obsolete versions
of the OS.

Sucks to be them.

Re: Replacing Disk Drives With Higher Capacity






The OP is on v5r2. but maybe he has BRMS....

Does a 730 even support v5r4, I don't think so.

The incremental removal/replacement works, but will take days to
complete and you wind up with data that won't necessarily be distributed
across the disks evenly. Performance will also likely be impacted
during
the removal process.

I'd do it (and have done it) the old fashioned way:
- GO SAVE/21.
- GO SAVE/21 again just in case.
- Power off.
- Pull all old drives out, noting the slot where each drive came from.
- Put the replacement drives in.
- Power up, DST, start mirroring & add to ASP.
- GO RESTORE/21.

If something goes wrong you can power off & put the old drives back in
(since their slot was noted).

This has the most user downtime but you end up with the most optimal
data layout (best performance).

And result in a loss of all spooled files and all of the other niceties
that are lost in this scenario. Appreciate the thought though.


BTW, if your apps will work on a newer OS release, upgrading to a 550
with a dozen 141GB disks would probably pay for itself in reduced
maintenance and power/HVAC costs while running circles around the 730.
And
take 8 or 9 Us in one rack v. about two full racks worth of space for
the
730 + DASD tower.

And incur a new key charge from Infor for daring to improve my machine.
Same for Extol's EDI package. It's been a year or two, but the last
time I spec'd a machine, it was over 100 grand to get a machine -near-
the performance of the 730/1506. So, unless a 550 runs on the power of
a 60 watt bulb, it'd take quite some time to recoup the expenses you
speak of.
