Tommy: I don't think there is any QIC technology that will help you on the
newer boxes. You might be able to find a SAS attached QIC but color me
really doubtful. Can the source machine connect to an IP network? If so
I'd use FTP to push the objects across. (the SAS only on the new boxes is
the real problem there)

Agile maintains sufficient equipment to help with the migration and I know
Larry (iInTheCloud) does as well, I believe there are others. Call if you
would like some help.

Yes currently it's running v3r6 but all of their applications are S/36.
The as/436 is a "hybrid" of sorts.

Tommy,

Have you laid hands on this machine? Wasn't there a model like that which
didn't run OS/400 but actually just ran S/36 SSP? And I'm not talking
about environment.

We were migrating from S/36's to AS/400's and in that process we had one
(semi autonomous) plant where the plant manager went to one of these
instead. He's now my boss. Great guy but I thought that move was a bit
odd.

A colleague of mine has a client with an old as/436 (yep that?s right a
436!) and they are looking at getting a shiny new system. The problem
(well other than doing multiple upgrades in the process) is that the only
drive on the system is the trusty internal QIC tape drive. Since I?m not
really that much of a hardware guy I thought I?d see if anyone knows if
there are external QIC drives that will work with a new system (most
likely entry level and cheapest on the market) running on v7.2. I suspect

they might be SOL on that front. According to the midrange.com wiki it
appears that the 436 can run v5r1 and if I?m reading that correctly then
we can handle most of the stuff up to that point then it?s finding someone

that can restore to v5r4 & save at v5r4 and load that to the v7.2 box.
Maybe I?m underestimating but I love seeing any company stepping forward
instead of clinging to the past so any assistance would be most
appreciated!


Thanks,
Tommy Holden
