:>My first quarter project will be moving our system over from our B35 (V2R3)
:>onto a new 2131 (black box). I would like to have some idea of what is involved
:>in this, can anyone expand on my idea? I figure it should go like this
:>Get black box into computer room
:>move one terminal and one printer over to the black box
:>Move over software, users, devices and the like
:> (probally from a full system backup of the B35???)
:>Test and make sure software runs right -
:>Once tested, move current (changed) data over to the new machine
:>move terminals and communications
:>Go live on new box.
:>Now I'm guessing that I can do all this during production hours
:>excpet backup the B35 and the actuall move over - which should just
:> be the night data backup and moving some cables, so I should be
:> able to do that in just a few hours.
:>Am I fooling myself?

I think you have some more questions to deal with.
What are the changes between V2R3 to V3R0M5 and then to V3R1.
Both of these changes will affect you and also the changes between V3R1 and
What you describe is just some major steps.
some more questions:
Are all your software supported???
Do you have soureccode for all your software???
Have you run the Upgrade Assist Program???
Do you know of the restrictions of restoring into a V3R6 machine???
When you put your order to IBM you shoul order it as if you would
do an "Side by Side-upgrade" so you wont get all SW preloaded.
This just what I could figure out for now!!
Good luck // Johan
