same here. the *only* issue we had was on our test system. we had
ordered a used LTO tape drive that was hosed from the start, "borrowed"
the one from our Notes LPAR (Notes admin never even knew...i love small
shops!!!) and we were off to the races. HMCs are nice things to have to

dodge all of the PC based ops console garbage...

Well, take note then that our 520 to E4A upgrade was the smoothest we've
had in 10 years. Ditto for our V5R3 to V5R4 OS upgrade. Not a single
user issue for either upgrade.

We did the upgrade in May and it was so seamless that I find myself
taken aback sometimes when I'm reminded of it.

I cannot help you, but I have to say something.

I am NOT looking forward to the day when my company needs to replace the
with Power i equipment. The amount of trouble people like you and Lukas
Pete had and are having getting new machines set up and running gives me
willies. I want simplicity, not this new complexity being introduced.

Just my $.02.

I am now in section "Initial IBM i OS configuration" (

Upon first logging in with QSECOFR/QSECOFR it requires you to change
QSECOFR password. No issue, I did that and proceeded to the next step
putting the system into manual mode, was prompted by the DST logon
and I entered QSECOFR and the *new* password. Well, it didn't take
the new
password, so I tried QSECOFR as the password - no go. And now it is
me "Id disabled" when I try to log in. When I do an F1 on that
message to
get more info it just takes me to the help for the screen, so I don't
have a message id to do a search on to see how to resolve the issue.
is the only page I could find, but it requires that I am able to log
in to
DST to enable a DST profile - thanks IBM:
