OS/400
We are in the process of inivesting in new i5 servers, we have old AS400 servers today and licences for serveral OS400 licpgms, but there is one single big post in our offer from BP. The 'enterprise edition', when I look into a FAQ about 'enterprise edition' I confused. 5722SS1 V5R3 is one of the posts which I have to buy, but if I have a software maintenance program with IBM this is included here. Why do I have to buy OS400 once again? I understand that some part of the price is HW for interactive load. Has anyone else been in the same situation? Kind regards Mikael

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

with i5 versus AS/400 there is a change in the designation for providing interactive CPW – you used to buy OS/400 and various interactive features providing various levels of interactive CPW – in i5OS is sold as 0 interactive (standard edition) or ALL interactive (enterprise edition.
The i520 Express models allow some variations in interactive %. All the program products are transferable but not the OS. If your agreements for current OS support have not expired, you should be able to get a prorated rebate.
Hope this helps.
