Hi, Steve,

Thanks for those links, and confirming what I thought.

(I was looking at the Knowledge Center, Memo To Users, for 7.4, but had not gotten down to that exact page yet.)

All the best,

Hello, all,

One of my customers says  "We asked IBM and they told us we can upgrade
directly from V7R1 to V7R4."

Is this really even possible?

AFAIK, IBM has never permitted a direct upgrade across more than two
releases, e.g. skipping over one intermediate release, "in one go."

So, I would expect to have to upgrade from 7.1 to either 7.2 or 7.3 first,
and then upgrade to 7.4.

Anyone know any different, with regard to 7.4?

Thanks in advance.
