We are moving 8 IBM i 7.1 lpars from a P7 to a new P8 machine. According to IBM, the process to use is SAVE 21 and restore as described in Appendix D 'Recovering your system to a different system' in the 'Recovering your System' manual.
My question relates to the fact that the existing lpars are at TR4 and thus won't run on P8 without at least TR8 applied. I was hoping to avoid having to apply maintenance to all 8 LPARs before moving them. I tried doing an install of 7.1 and all maintenance on the new hardware, then just a Restore 23 userdata but that broke things that was messy to clean up afterwards.
Has anyone attempted anything similar and found an easier way?
