Your current iSeries production environment will be restored onto a similarly configured server (i5OS version and hardware resources) to fully test all aspects of the V5RX to i6.1 / i7.x iSeries upgrade process. Abacus support engineers will execute the V5RX upgrade to i6.1 / i7.1 / i7.2 to the dedicated Abacus test environment from customer provided media. We'll also fully document the process, providing you with a deliverable that includes necessary steps and actions. Once the migration is complete you can test via remote VPN, allowing you to thoroughly assess the i6.1 / i7.x functionality and readiness. Additionally, by closely simulating your production environment, you will be able to accurately plan for the real world migration outage time frames.
