How to Upgrade to IBM i 7.3

Planning tips, technology prerequisites, and post-installation requirements


Presentation:  V7R3 Upgrade "Tips and Techniques".  

Presentation Outline:

When performing an upgrade to IBM i, devote more work to planning the upgrade, than performing the upgrade! Once you have a plan, the actual upgrade is simple. 
Answer key questions like these:
  • What is the right size for the load source?
  • How do I increase the licensed internal code?
  • Which version of Java is compatible with the new release?
  • Which console options are no longer available with 7.3?
  • Do I have the correct set of disks for the upgrade?
  • What do I need to do differently when upgrading from 6.1, 7.1, or 7.2?
Terry Paone  (Director of Technology Enterprise Solutions Division of Genisys Group, Inc.)  will also be present and will share real world information obtained from his numerous IBM i OS upgrades, including to V7R3.
