Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

They are the same. iSeries and AS400 are both names for the same server. IBM has changed the name so many times that I don’t want to keep track of it anymore. I believe now they call it the Power Systems because the I and P both use the same hardware.

    Was the system/36, then system/38, then as/400, then iSeries then System i....all are the same thing with System i / POWER i {depending which articles you read} being the latest one. A bit like saying 386, 486, 586, Pentium IV etc etc etc (same thing - i.e. a PC - just different processors) - only difference being where the PC names seem to make sense from the processor - IBM seems to simply change the name seemingly on a whim.

    "Was the system/36, then system/38,..." - Not quite. System/3 was replaced by the System/3x family - System/34, System/36 and System/38. When the AS/400 came out there were so many S/36 shops that wouldn't move to the 'new' hardware that IBM introduced the AS/36. There was even a 'System/36' environment available on the AS/400.

    Hi, There was even a system/36 virtual machine which allowed execution of S/36 objects on the AS/400-i-series-etc. This is no longer supported as far as I know. I know of several sites which still use the S/36 environment. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    The AS/400 began life as a S/38. The S/36 was the end of a line that began with the S/3. IBM wanted to combine their two mid-range offerings, the S/36 and S/38. They did this via the S/36 Environment, allowing aa AS/400 to look just like a S/36. And I deal with a payroll application, at more than one site, that runs in the S/36 environment. Some things just refuse to die. Leo Burkett

    Hi, It's also worth mentioning the S/38 environment. This was basically a library of commands which were compatible with S/38 command formatting. S/38 commands used (FILE.LIBRARY) for qualified names whereas AS/400 uses (LIBRARY/FILE). Regards, Martin Gilbert.
