What You Need to Know to Successfully Upgrade to 7.3


When doing an upgrade to IBM i, there is more work involved in the planning of the upgrade than in the actual upgrade itself. When you have done the planning, the actual upgrade is simple. We will cover planning tips, pre-requisites, and then post installation requirements. Your upgrade isnít complete until this last step is done. While this presentation will focus on upgrading to 7.3, if you are upgrading to an earlier release (7.2, 7.1), we will also cover those releases.


Learning Objectives:
1) Preparation steps required for OS Upgrade.
2) Compatibility issues between releases.
3) Requirements for upgrading.
