I would certainly recommend bypassing 6.1 and going straight to 7.1.

We have upgraded multiple clients environments across a mix of ERP's including System/21 using the process outlined below without any problems using our staging servers.

It is worth noting that you will only have to re-compile objects that do not have observable information. These will be highlighted by the upgrade pre-checks.

Geoff

Dear All,

We will also have to upgrade in the near future.

From what we have gathered:

It is recommended to use a different iSeries machine to create a parallel environment for V7R1.

You must be up do date with the PTFs
You need to migrate first to V5R4.
There is a new version of System Manager which makes life easier.

Programs will have to re-compiled


Rgds,
Guy

Mary,

We just migrated from V5R4 to V7R1 with System21 V3.52. You need to
determine what RPG programs will not convert and get them corrected, and test all of your SQL on the target system if you are migrating. Make sure you third party vendors' products are V7R1 compliant and get licensing. If you are upgrading, I would suggest a rental V7R1 box to flush out any issues. The memo to users for upgrading/migrating to V6R1 is helpful. Our migration took about four hours for the initial save of the current V5R4 system, and about six hours to restore with conversion using the Save21 tape we just created on our V5R4 system. We did a selective restore of the user
libraries. We had to do this on our HA machine as well. The stuff that
did not convert initially was already corrected on the our target system from previous months testing.

Has anyone done a V6R1 upgrade with version 3.5.1 version of System 21? If so, can you describe the issues, problems, length of time it took, etc.

Thank You very much.

Mary
