RE: CISC to RISC Migration


RE: CISC to RISC Migration

In my opinion...

I assume that you will be doing a side by side migration (?).

If so, I would strongly suggest that you bring the RISC box to the cume 6
level and attempt the cume upgrade after the migration. This way you aren't
mixing two different changes at the same time. If you did it together (cume
upgrade and RISC migration) and came up with any problems, you wouldn't be
sure as to which change was at fault.

I did a side by side CISC to RISC on World A7.3 cume 4 with very little
issues in June of 1999.
