How to Upgrade to IBM i 7.3

Planning tips, technology prerequisites, and post-installation requirements from the expert, Pete Massiello


When doing an upgrade to IBM i, it’s more work to plan the upgrade than to make the upgrade itself. Once you have a plan, the actual upgrade is simple.

Do you know what you need to upgrade to IBM i 7.3?

Pete Massiello, former president of COMMON and current president of iTech Solutions, has helped many IBM i users make the move. In this recorded webinar, Pete joins Tom Huntington to get you on the right path to an upgrade by helping you answer key questions like these:

  • What is the right size for the load source?
  • How do I increase the licensed internal code?
  • Which version of Java is compatible with the new release?
  • Which console options are no longer available with 7.3?
  • Do I have the correct set of disks for the upgrade?
  • What do I need to do differently when upgrading from 6.1, 7.1, or 7.2?

This recording covers planning tips, hardware and software prerequisites, and post-installation requirements—your upgrade isn’t complete until this last step is done!

The focus will be on upgrading to 7.3, but you’ll also learn specifics for a 7.1 or 7.2 release upgrade.
