My company is participating in a Disaster Recovery workshop at the IBM office in Toronto. The issue is that we currently have our system installed on an iSeries model 550, but the machine that IBM is supplying us with for the workshop is an 840. Will we have any problems restoring our V5R3M0 system on to this machine? Thanks, Ian Tate

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

Contact your IBM Account Representative. I normally contact our account rep at IBM when I have questions of this nature. They will advise you on what needs to be done to make a smooth transition.

    You should be able to load your existing system to the 840. The only catch will be if it is licensed at the same level as your machine. If it is not, the system password timer will start to count down, and at the end of 70 days, the system will stop functioning. The same thing is to be said for any of the licensed programs you may have. You can load them to the 840, but unless you have the key codes for them, for the 840, you will only be able to use them for 70 days. Hope this helps

    ...at the end of 70 days, the system will stop functioning. The system does not stop functioning after 70 days. However, you won't be able to stop and restart the system without a valid license key. On a business system, it is almost certain that some functions will not work properly without license keys after expiration, particularly where multiple users will be running concurrently. Tom
