what do I need to do? Published by: clbirk on 22 Jul 2012 view comments(3)

4 years ago I moved from 3 machines with 5 guest M36's sessions to an ibmi (M25). We moved the thousands of files, probably 20,000 programs and nearly like # of procs over to the M25, in a two week time period (literally we moved one system one weekend, and the other system the next weekend) with very little problems.


Now we are replacing the "M25" with a E4C (power 7 720), and there is not a compatible tape drive between the two systems, so I plan on doing SAVF's and ftping them across. Machine is running S36EE, and so what sorts of gotcha's do I need to what out for?


I am also going from V6R1 to V7R1. I won't be moving any "system libraries", I had planned on moving the QS36F however and maybe the QSSP where all the profile stuff is. 


Before it was easy because I did a "save all" on the old machine, and did a s36 restore and files were on and I was done (libraries done similarly and I did mass compiles, I realize I won't have to "compile" everything).
