What You Need to Know to Successfully Upgrade to IBM i V7.4 and V7.3
When doing an upgrade to IBM i, there is more work involved in planning the upgrade than in the upgrade itself. When you have done the planning, the upgrade is simple. This session covers planning tips, prerequisites, hardware issues, software compatibility and post-installation requirements. Your upgrade isn’t complete until this last step is done. While this presentation focuses on upgrading to V7.4 and V7.3, if you are upgrading to an earlier release, (V7.1, V7.2), we will also cover those releases.
