  1. This is been perfect webinar.

    I have a query related to AS 400 power 8 server.
    Recently we have replaced our ( YKK INDIA) AS400 power 7 server with AS 400 power 8 server.
    Planing to change UPS as well. Our Vendor has proposed EATON 11 KVA 9PX Online UPS System Single Phase IO.

    You are requested Check and suggest Right product , So that my Server must be safe and secure.
    Waiting for your valuable revert.

  2. Memo to users 7.3
    IBM i 7.3 is not supported on POWER7 BladeCenter or
    POWER7/POWER7+ IBM Flex system compute nodes

    8 IBM i: Memo to Users

    This conflicts with your slide. Even though you mentioned it. It is not clear as it appears that power7/power7+ is not supported from the Memo to users.
    I can still go to 7.3 on my Power 7+ even though hardware has reached end of life?

    Best Regards
