Helping a friend do an install on a new iSeries. They'll restore the old as400 data onto the new as400. Unfortunately, the old system is still on V4R4 and the new system is at V5R3. Are there any problems we need to be aware before transferring the SAVSYS from the old box to the new box?

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

Hi,

You can’t just put a 4.4 savsys onto a 5.3 system. If this is an i5 you will need to migrate over the pieces. There are good instructions in appendix D of the Backup and Recovery guide.

    Actually, you can install anything from a scratch install. You put on tje base operating system, then put on your savsys tape, then install 5.3 over everything. I did this going from 4.4 to 5.2 but didn't know if there was something in 5.3 of which I needed awareness.

    Please clarify if you really mean SAVSYS itself or you mean security and configuration from a SAVSYS or you mean user objects from a full system save. You do not want to be successful at restoring a SAVSYS from one OS/400 release to a system at a different except for objects related to Save Security Data (SAVSECDTA) and Save Configuration (SAVCFG) commands. SAVSYS saves Licensed Internal Code and QSYS library. A 'full system save' includes SAVSYS as a minor part. SAVSYS includes SAVSECDTA and SAVCFG as a minor part.
