DESCRIPTION
GROWTH ENABLEMENT
SUPPORT OF NEW PROCESSORS AND INTERFACES
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1:  Operating System/400 Version 2 is
required on all new AS/400 Version 2 Model D processors to support
the hardware of these models.  OS/400 supports up to 384MB of main
storage and up to 62GB of direct access storage devices (DASD) with
mirroring on the largest AS/400 model.  Enhancements to OS/400 for
the D model processors also include support of two-way, shared-memory
multiprocessor configurations, up to 2000 directly-attached
workstations and up to 64 concurrent communication lines.
       Additional device support is provided with OS/400 so that very
large unattended saves can be made by all models of the AS/400
system.  For instance, OS/400 supports the new high-density 3490E
Models D41 and D42.  These models may provide up to 7GB of unattended
save using Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC) format and the
Automatic Cartridge Loader.  The OS/400 also supports the 7208 2.3GB
External 8mm Cartridge Tape Drive Model 002 on all models, and the
525MB  1/4-inch Cartridge Tape Unit on the 9404 and 9402 models.
       As a continuation of the effort to enable customer
applications by providing documented and supported interfaces to
OS/400 system functions, call-level interfaces are added for
date/time conversions and access to document library objects.  In
addition, usability and performance of the existing call-level
interfaces to system functions are improved.
       New APIs, provided for SAA OfficeVision (TM)/400, are also
added to the system, allowing customers to handle calendar and
enrollment functions with their own applications and in batch.

BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
COMMUNICATIONS, NETWORKING, APIS AND PRINT
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1:  New OS/400 communications and networking
solutions are created by the addition of integrated services digital
network (ISDN) to OS/400.  The ISDN support includes advanced
networking features, calling party identifier, call manager, dialed
number identifier, ISDN data link control protocol (IDLC) and
extensions to network management support.
       Advanced peer-to-peer network (APPN) control is improved in
reliability and availability by new function that switches paths
after a node failure to continue the flow of alerts.  Additionally,
networks that have different identifications can connect to each
other in an any-pair configuration, while the topology of each is
isolated from the other for security and performance reasons.  The
APPN end-node support of OS/400 Version 1 and OS/400 Version 2
complies with SAA APPN Common Communications Services.  Application
programs written to the SAA CPI for communications have
program-to-program connectivity using SAA APPN end node support on
SAA-compliant systems.
       OS/400 supports the SAA common programming interface (CPI) for
communications between programs.  It is also supported by the SAA
environments of Operating System/2 (R) (OS/2 (R)), VM/ESA (TM) and
MVS/ESA (TM) (MVS, CICS, TSO).  The CPI, an architected call level
interface, is accessible from every SAA language (RPG/400 (R),
COBOL/400 (TM), FORTRAN/400 (TM), C/400 (TM) and Procedures Language
400/REXX).
       OS/400 support of Open Systems Interconnect Communications
Subsystem/400, layers three through six, and Association Control
Service Element (ACSE) allows the AS/400 system to connect to non-IBM
networks.
       As part of controlled openness, OS/400 supports several
application programming interfaces (API) that allow software vendors
and customers to develop or port their applications to the AS/400
system.  The new AS/400 APIs include a communications interface for
private protocols, an interface for terminal emulation programs for
non-IBM terminals, an API to folders, an interface to allow
applications to send alerts to the OS/400 alert manager, and a
security interface that allows an application program to change the
profile under which it is running and check the password dynamically.
Protocols such as Novell (1), DecNet (2), and non-SNA X.25
packet-layer protocols can be implemented through the communications
API.
       Other new business solutions include OS/400 advanced function
print (AFP) enhancements to support all-points-addressable
Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) printers using AFP
Utilities/400 licensed program.  The IPDS printers include the 4028
(with no hardware changes) and the 4224 and 4234 printers.
       With this new function, customers can merge and print data and
electronic forms overlays -- including bar codes, logos, signatures,
and other images -- using the new form and data merge function.  This
function may eliminate the need for preprinted forms.  With its AFP
function, an AS/400 system can act as a print server for the
System/370, accepting advanced function print data stream (AFPDS) and
1403 line data.
       The AS/400 SNA DBCS 3270 Personal Computer emulation in OS/400
is also enhanced to support new display units and workstation
printers for Japanese.  Supported functions are equal to that of the
Japanese 3270 PC Version 8.1X.  The new models supported are 5580-Y,
5561-W, 5551-V2, 5545-T, and 5541-T of PS/55, 8515-A01 and 5574-C05
of new displays, and 5579-H02 and 5587-H01 of new workstation
printers.

COLOR APPLICATIONS FOR DBCS DISPLAYS
In Version 2 Release 1, OS/400 supports the development and use of
color applications for double byte character set (DBCS) displays,
including the Personal System/55, the IBM 5295 Display Station and
the InfoWindow (R) 3477.  Color DBCS displays can be configured
through device configuration; data description specifications (DDS)
also support the COLOR keyword on DBCS-capable fields.

   Corporation.
CONNECTIVITY AND NETWORKING
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1.1:  OS/400 support of Open Systems
Interconnect (OSI) continues to grow in Version 2 Release 1.1 with
the enabling of the OSI File Services/400 and OSI Message
Services/400 licensed programs.  The OSI Message Services/400 support
provides for electronic exchange of messages, and the OSI File
Services/400 protocols allow the AS/400 system to transparently
connect to non-IBM networks for file transfer and management.  OSI is
an element of SAA common communications support.
       New function within the OS/400 allows an SNA backbone network
to connect an AS/400 system with a 5394 Remote Control Unit,
installed with RPQ 8Q0775, using LU6.2.
       Therefore, the 5394 need no longer be directly connected to an
AS/400 system.  No changes to application programs are needed to use
the 5394 SNA backbone network connectivity function.  Refer to IBM
5394 Remote Control Unit RPQ 8Q0775 for more information.
       The AS/400 SNA DBCS 3270 Personal Computer emulation in OS/400
is enhanced by the addition of support for new models of the Personal
System/55, graphics, and DOS 4.0 in the Korean and Traditional
Chinese versions.  The emulation support allows an IBM PS/55 to
communicate with an IBM System/370 as if it were a DBCS 3270 PC,
while it is connected to an AS/400 system as a 5250 workstation.
Supported functions are equal to that of the DBCS 3270 PC
Version 8.00.  The PS/55 Micro Channel (R) models supported are
5530-T, 5551-T, 5551-S/T, 5561-W, and 5580-Y for Korean and 5530-T,
5541-T, 5551-S/T, 5561-W and 5571-T for Traditional Chinese.
Non-Micro Channel models are already supported.

INVESTMENT PROTECTION
RESTORING SAVED OBJECTS
Objects created and saved on Version 2 Release 1.1 can be restored
and can function on Version 2 Release 1 and Version 1 Release 3,
providing the program does not contain new Version 2 Release 1.1
function.  Objects created and saved on Version 2 Release 1 can be
restored and can function on Version 1 Release 3, providing the
program does not contain new Version 2 Release 1 function.
PRINTMANAGER/400
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1:  Enhancements to PrintManager/400 have
extended its basic functions to COBOL and RPG applications.
PrintManager/400 is the SAA CPI for printing.
SAA DISTRIBUTED DATABASE AND NEW DISTRIBUTED FILE SUPPORT
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1.1:  Access to data on other SAA systems is
greatly expanded with OS/400 support of the first stage of SAA
distributed data base architecture.  The new function simplifies read
and write access to remote data and provides SAA enterprise-wide data
connectivity.  The SQL/400 (R) licensed program is required to use
this function.  The portability of data and applications achieved
with this function means that applications can be placed where they
are most used and yet remain accessible throughout the enterprise.
       SAA Character Data Representation Architecture (CDRA) makes it
possible for data from multiple national languages to reside in the
same table and be accessible through the new distributed data base
support.  When the data is moved between systems, conversion of data
representations is done transparently, thus maintaining data
integrity.
       Support for SAA-compatible null values, date and time data
types, and variable-length fields is added to OS/400 to increase
portability of data and applications between SAA systems.
 (R) Registered trademark of International Business Machines
   Corporation.
       Remote file transactions may be committed and rolled back with
new commitment control for Distributed Data Management (DDM) file
functions on OS/400.  With this support, both data base and file
functions can be committed in the same unit of work.
SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT
AVAILABILITY, RECOVERY AND PERFORMANCE TUNING
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1:  Higher system availability is possible
because of the following improvements:
o   System restart is slightly faster following normal and abnormal
    system stop
o   Removal of the limit on the number of objects in a library that
    can be saved in a single operation
o   Faster saves of changed objects
o   Faster save/restore by overlapped operations
o   Designation of an auxiliary storage pool (ASP) of data to protect
    against loss (using checksum).
       New tape management enhancements allow easy duplication of
tapes, and tape error recovery is improved, eliminating most job
restarts in the event of a tape error.
       Space left when records are deleted can now be reused without
reorganizing.  This function reduces the time needed for file
maintenance for most customers.  Efficiency of space utilization and
availability of files and applications are also increased.
       Performance tuning of storage pools can now be done
automatically by OS/400.
INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1.1:  Version 2 Release 1 can be installed
directly over Version 1 Release 2 or Version 1 Release 3.  Version 2
Release 1.1 can be installed directly over Version 1 Release 2,
Version 1 Release 3 or Version 2 Release 1.  This function will be
available September 20, 1991.  Refer to the compatibility and
coexistence information in the PLANNING INFORMATION section before
planning to install Version 2 Release 1 or Version 2 Release 1.1 over
Version 1 Release 2.
       Managing remote sites from a central site is simpler with
OS/400 support of batch distribution and routing commands for SNA/DS.
With the new function, distribution and routing at remote sites can
be handled by batch jobs sent from the central site.
USER PRODUCTIVITY
ASSISTANCE WITH OPERATING THE SYSTEM, DEVELOPING HELP AND PRINTING
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1:  Significant new operational assistant
function makes the following tasks easier:
o   Managing printed output
o   Coordinating messages from different queues
o   Working with system device status
o   Enrolling and deleting users
o   Handling the backup of libraries
o   Managing a schedule of automatic system power off and on.
       Application developers now have access to all help functions
used by IBM, including help text for user-written commands, the use
of hypertext links and the index search function.  (Hypertext is a
way of linking related pieces of information in a network fashion,
allowing quick access between the information nodes.)  With access to
these help functions, application programmers can implement help
information in their application programs more quickly.
       The improvements to AFP and ASCII data handling make printer
use easier and more consistent, while providing more function than
previously available.  New function includes the capability to assign
a default printer (session printer) to a workstation, allowing
printed output to follow the user, and the capability to direct the
print key output to the session printer and assign borders and
headers to the output.
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1.1:  Productivity of programmers and users
is aided by the new OS/400 windowing capability.  Programmers can
design applications to show help and other data in display windows
while other displayed information remains visible.
SEARCHING DOCUMENTS, QUERYING DATA AND RUNNING DUAL SESSIONS
OS/400 VERSION 2 RELEASE 1.1:  Users can now do contextual document
search on OS/400.  Search arguments can contain natural language

statements, making it easy for anyone to retrieve documents to which
they have authority.  Access to this search function is available
through the document library services application programming
interface when SAA OfficeVision/400 and the search function are
installed.
       Performance of queries running on OS/400 Query Management, the
SAA query CPI, is now improved.  For most queries, the time to
display the first screen of data and the overall runtime of queries
are significantly reduced.
       Improvements made to OS/400 services show up as benefits to
office-related function.  For instance, now a user can have multiple,
active Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) sign-on sessions.
Productivity is improved, because the user of one session can start a
second session without signing off the first.  Additionally, users
can specify an option to have a 'new-mail-waiting" notification when
can specify an option to have a 'new-mail-waiting" notification when
working outside the IBM SAA OfficeVision/400 menu environment so that
messages are accessible without exiting an application to check for
new mail.
       For further discussion of these and other enhancements
included in Version 2 Release 1 and Version 2 Release 1.1, refer to
the Application System/400 New Products Planning Information for
Version 2 Release 1 (GA41-0007) manual.
ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
Concurrent with the announcement of Version 2, IBM has made changes
to the way AS/400 publications are packaged and priced.  With this
change, new groups of publications have been created to allow
customers added flexibility in requesting only the documentation they
want and need.
       These new groups of publications consist of a basic set of
manuals, part of the product, at no charge; optional groups that may
be purchased for a fee; and optional groups available at no charge.
As an alternative to purchasing optional documentation groups that
have an associated fee, IBM now offers the IBM AS/400 Softcopy
Library on a CD-ROM disc (SK2T-8250) as an optional, no-charge
feature of OS/400.
       Use the information supplied in the HARD COPY PUBLICATIONS
section to determine your Version 2 optional publications

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
SPECIFIED OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
MACHINE REQUIREMENTS:  For Version 2 Release 1 of OS/400 a minimum of
600MB of disk storage is required.  The 600MB includes space for
licensed internal code, licensed programs, applications, and user
data.  The auxiliary storage requirements for the AS/400 licensed
internal code and licensed programs are included for convenience in
calculating total requirements.
       Auxiliary storage is required on all AS/400 systems for
licensed internal code:
  IBM 9402/9404 System Unit                   76.0MB
  IBM 9406 System Unit                        94.0MB
       In addition, disk space equivalent to the main storage size is
required to accommodate a main storage dump.  The licensed internal
code sizes include dump space for a 4MB system.
       The OS/400 licensed program supports all models of the IBM
AS/400 system.  The OS/400 extended base support is installed
automatically after the OS/400 base support has been installed
successfully.  OS/400 and the OS/400 extended base require the
following auxiliary storage space after installation:
  Base                                       175.0MB   (140.0MB)*
  Extended Base                                6.0MB
       When a system is initially installed, the options are
automatically loaded and can be selectively deleted after
installation.
       When a system is upgraded to a new level, deleted options will
not be installed.  Deleted options can be explicitly installed after
the upgrade is completed by using the GO LICPGM command.  For
Version 2 Release 1, the OS/400 options require the following
auxiliary storage space:
  Online Information                          22.0MB     (9.0MB)*
  Online Education                             5.5MB
  System/36 and System/38
    Migration                                  6.5MB
  System/36 Environment                        9.0MB     (6.0MB)*
  System/38 Environment                        2.0MB
  Example Tools Library                       30.0MB
  AFP Compatibility Fonts                      5.0MB
  Previous Release CL Compiler
    Support                                    4.5MB
       System work space is also required, estimated at 12% of the
total size of all installed 5738-XXX licensed programs.
       The following are estimates of the auxiliary storage space
needed after installation of OS/400 Version 2 Release 1.1:
  Base                                       205.0MB   (160.0MB)*
o   Extended Base remains the same as in Version 2 Release 1
o   OS/400 Options remain the same as in Version 2 Release 1.
       More precise sizings will be available in the Version 2
Release 1.1 Summary of Changes (GC41-0029) manual.
*  Items marked by an asterisk in the preceding lists are distributed
   in compressed format to ensure the disk space consumed is not more
   than was consumed for Version 1 Release 3.  Other options and
   licensed programs may also be shipped in compressed format.  The
   items compressed are those that have low usage in typical
   application execution environments.  In systems of less than 500MB
   of unused space, these objects remain compressed until first use.
   In systems of more than 500MB of unused space, these objects are
   decompressed when installed.  The decompression does not affect
   installation time.  However, a compressed item being accessed for
   the first time will be slightly delayed while decompression is
   occurring.
       For more information refer to the Programming:  Control
Language Programmer's Guide (SC41-8077) manual.
PROGRAMMING REQUIREMENTS:  All AS/400 system programs must be at the
same release and modification level.
o   Version 2 Release 1 can be directly installed over Version 1
    Release 2 or Version 1 Release 3.
o   Version 2 Release 1.1 can be directly installed over Version 1
    Release 2, Version 1 Release 3, or Version 2 Release 1.
       Before installing, refer to the Memo To Users -- Version 2
Release 1 Modification 0 (GC41-0031) publication for more
information.
COMPATIBILITY:
o   OS/400 can coexist and exchange data (not OS/400 objects) with
    other systems in a network.  The other systems may or may not be
    running OS/400.  Refer to the Application System/400 Network
    Planning Guide (GC41-9861) publication for more detail.
o   OS/400 provides upward object compatibility.  OS/400 objects
    created and saved on a Version 1 system may be restored and used
    on a Version 2 system.
o   OS/400 provides one level of downward object compatibility.
    OS/400 objects created and saved on a Version 2 Release 1 system
    may be restored and used on a Version 1 Release 3 system,
    providing only Version 1 Release 3 function is used.  Refer to
    the Backup and Recovery Guide (SC41-8079) publication for more
    detail.
o   OS/400 objects created and saved on a Version 2 Release 1 system
    cannot be directly restored and used on a Version 1 Release 2
    system.  To move objects from a Version 2 Release 1 system to a
    Version 1 Release 2 system requires an intermediate Version 1
    Release 3 system.  In addition, the objects must only use
    Version 1 Release 2 function.
CAUTION
Before installing OS/400 Version 2 Release 1, refer to the Memo To
Users -- Version 2 Release 1 Modification 0 (GC41-0031) publication,
especially in the following four instances:
1.  If customers are currently at Version 1 Release 2 and plan to
    install Version 2 Release 1, additional considerations are
    important to be aware of before installing the release.  These
    considerations can be found in the following publications:
    o   Memo To Users -- Release 3 Modification 0 (GC21-8264)
        describes changes from Release 2 to Release 3, which may
        impact programs or system operations when Version 2 Release 1
        is installed.
    o   New Products Planning Information for Release 3 (GA21-9579)
        describes the enhancements for Release 3.
           The two publications should be ordered and read so that
    customers fully understand all the changes made in Version 1
    Release 3.
2.  Central sites, Business Partners, and Agents with only one AS/400
    system that distributes software to, or must support, other
    AS/400 systems running OS/400 Version 1 Release 2, Version 1
    Release 3 or Version 2 Release 1:
    o   For those who distribute OS/400 objects such as programs and
        files, but do not distribute IBM PTFs:
               Version 1 Release 3 must be installed on the single
        system.  OS/400 objects can be saved off Version 1 Release 3
        and directly restored on Version 1 Release 2 (assuming only
        Version 1 Release 2 function is used), Version 1 Release 3,
        and Version 2 Release 1.  The single system can be upgraded
        to Version 2 Release 1 when it no longer needs to support
        Version 1 Release 2 systems.
    o   For those who distribute OS/400 objects such as programs and
        files, as well as IBM PTFs:
               A minimum of two AS/400 systems is required.  One
        AS/400 system must run Version 1 Release 3.  Version 1
        Release 2 and Version 1 Release 3 PTFs can be received and
        distributed from a Version 1 Release 3 system.  The second
        AS/400 system must run Version 2 Release 1.  Version 1
        Release 3 and Version 2 Release 1 PTFs can be received and
        distributed from a Version 2 Release 1 system.
3.  Customers using 3480 or 3490 Magnetic Tape Subsystems currently
    at Release 2, and installing Version 2 Release 0 or Version 2
    Release 1.1:
           In Release 2, 3480 and 3490 tape devices were supported as
    3422 tape devices.  This means that the controller and device
    descriptions for the 3480 and 3490 tape devices specified a type
    of 3422.  In Version 2 Release 1, these controller and device
    descriptions with 3422 as the type, will not work with 3480 and
    3490 tape devices.  The 3480/3490 tape devices must be manually
    reconfigured.
4.  Customers with users who are running PC Support Version 1
    Release 2, or customers that will have a network of AS/400
    systems and personal computers on Version 1 Release 2, Version 1
    Release 3 and Version 2 Release 1:
    o   For customers preparing to upgrade their AS/400 system from
        Version 1 Release 2 to Version 2 Release 1, and with this
        system supporting personal computers running PC Support,
        preventive action must be taken before installing Version 2
        Release 1.
    o   Code that runs on the personal computer must all be at the
        same release level.  Unpredictable results can occur if PC
        Support functions are at different release levels.
    o   Some Version 2 Release 1 PC Support functions do not work
        when run to the Version 1 OS/400 host.
    o   Virtual Print may not function.
       Refer to Programming Announcement 291-161, dated
April 22, 1991, for additional information.
LIMITATIONS:  The following should be considered when choosing OS/400
Version 2.
MIRRORING:  IBM recommends full mirroring.  Partial mirroring
significantly increases the complexity of systems management and
adversely impacts system availability.
       The 9406 D Model system does not provide mirrored protection
for its multifunction processor.  Refer to the AS/400 Programming:
Backup and Recovery Guide, Part 6 (SC41-8079) publication.
PRINT:  For clarification of the use of OS/400 support of AFP
Utilities, a separately licensed program, refer to the Application
System/400 New Product Planning Information for Version 2 Release 1
(GA41-0007) manual.
       OS/400 does not support the download of fonts to the 4028,
4224 and 4234 printers.
USER GROUP REQUIREMENTS:  This announcement satisfies or partially
satisfies requirements from one or more of the World Wide User Group
Communities, which include Australasian SHARE GUIDE (ASG),
U.S. COMMON, COMMON Europe, GUIDE, European G.U.I.D.E., Japan GUIDE
SHARE (JGS), Latin American GUIDE (LAG), SHARE EUROPE and SHARE.
PLANNING INFORMATION
       Operating System/400 Version 2 is supported by both the AS/400
SystemXtra (TM) and Installation QuickStart service offerings.
 (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES:  Before installing Version 2 licensed
programs, customers must read the Memo To Users -- Version 2
Release 1 Modification 0 (GC41-0031) publication shipped with the
machine-readable material.
SYSTEM INTEGRITY
       System integrity is an important characteristic of the OS/400
product.  For systems running with the highest security level (system
value QSECURITY=40), IBM now accepts APARS that describe exposures to
system integrity as defined below.
       The machine architecture of AS/400 enforces controls requiring
users be authorized to objects referenced when running a machine
instruction.  OS/400 has been developed using programming guidelines
that maintain system integrity and control access to user data.
Version 2 Release 1 introduces additional protection to isolate
customer and system objects.   This protection is designed to prevent
unauthorized access to objects and the unauthorized use of privileged
system interfaces and restricted machine instructions.
       Because it is not possible to certify that any system has
perfect integrity, IBM accepts APARS that describe exposures to the
system integrity of the OS/400 system.  System integrity APARs
describe problems encountered when a program on the AS/400 introduces
an exposure to system integrity, provided that when running under
OS/400 the user or program are not authorized under a method under
the user's control.  IBM continues its efforts to enhance the
integrity of OS/400 and responds promptly when exposures are
identified and reported in Version 2 Release 1 or subsequent releases
of OS/400.
       OS/400 system integrity is defined as the inability of any
program running under OS/400 not authorized by a method under the
customer's control to:
o   Cause an application program to run in system state or gain
    access to restricted system interfaces or machine instructions
o   Access/modify any object to which the user or the program is not
    authorized.
SECURITY, AUDITABILITY AND CONTROL
       These products use the security and auditability features of
the OS/400 support.  Usage of these facilities is optional.  The
security measures supplied by OS/400 are designed to reduce the risk
of users changing or destroying resources, but does not prevent it.
The OS/400 security features include the use of passwords, a security
option to limit a user's ability to perform functions provided by
customer-designed menus, and a security option to limit read/write
access for files, libraries and folders during normal operations.  To
achieve increased security, the OS/400 controls should be combined
with physical security and a division of duties.

       User management is responsible for evaluation, selection, and
implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and
appropriate controls in application systems and communication
facilities.

and no program material or updates will be shipped.
CURRENT VERSION 1 LICENSEES
AS/400 Version 2 Release 1 software will be available to current
users of AS/400 Version 1 software on May 24, 1991.  All current
Version 1 customers will receive a Version 2 announcement package
consisting of:
o   Highlights of AS/400 Version 2 Release 1
o   New Products Planning Information for Version 2 Release 1
    (GA41-0007) manual
o   List of currently installed Version 1 software products.
       Current users of Version 1 software products can upgrade to
Version 2 by placing an order directly through their IBM
representative or IBM Authorized Business Partner.
       Customers who require the Version 1 Release 2 to Version 2
Release 1 installation function, which will be available on
September 20, 1991, should wait until then to order a software
upgrade to Version 2.
       Effective September 1, 1992, there will be a charge to upgrade
existing Version 1 programs to the Version 2 level.  The concept of
software versions is not new to IBM or the rest of the computer
industry.  It is, however, new for the AS/400 system customer.  To
acquaint AS/400 customers with this concept, existing Version 1
customers who order Version 2 prior to September 1, 1992, can do so

without incurring a program upgrade charge.  Orders must be shipped
on or before November 30, 1992.
       Programs ordered in addition to those being upgraded or
programs ordered for new systems will be charged for based upon the
processor-based charge group of the system selected.
       Version 1 system software programs will not run on the new D
hardware models.  Version 1 customers who upgrade to a D model
processor, must first upgrade all of their Version 1 system programs
to Version 2.
       Licensees of AS/400 Operating System/400 Version 1 (5728-SS1)
may upgrade to the AS/400 Operating System/400 Version 2 (5738-SS1)
as outlined below.
UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS
To upgrade from an installed Version 1 program to a Version 2 program
in the same processor group, place an order for the 5738-XXX program
and specify the appropriate program version upgrade feature number
for the Basic license.  Use the DSLO version upgrade feature numbers
for a DSLO license.
       If Version 1 is a DSLO license and the customer wishes to
upgrade to a Version 2 Basic license, Version 1 must be converted
from a DSLO license to a Basic license first.

UNLICENSED DOCUMENTATION:  Concurrent with the announcement of
Version 2, IBM has made changes to the way AS/400 publications are
packaged and priced.  With this change, new groups of publications
have been created to allow customers added flexibility in requesting
only the documentation they want and need.
       These new groups of publications consist of a basic set of
manuals are part of the product at no charge, optional groups that
may be purchased for a fee, and optional groups that are available at
no fee.  As an alternative to purchasing optional documentation
groups that have an associated fee, IBM now offers the IBM AS/400
Softcopy Library on a CD-ROM disc (SK2T-8250) as an optional,
no-charge feature of OS/400.
       Use the information supplied in the HARD COPY PUBLICATIONS
section to determine your Version 2 optional publication
requirements.
SOFT COPY PUBLICATIONS:  The IBM AS/400 Softcopy Library will be
available at product availability.  To order, specify the no charge

IBM AS/400 Softcopy Library feature number 7050 on the Operating
System/400 5738-SS1 and on the SPO 5755-AS2.
       All of the manuals listed in this section of the announcement
are included on the CD-ROM disc, with the following exceptions:
Master Index and More                             SC41-8204
Machine Interface Functional Reference            SC41-8226
       Additional copies of the CD-ROM disc (SK2T-8250) will be
available for a fee after product availability.  These copies may be
ordered from your IBM representative, through the System Library
Subscription Service (SLSS) or by direct order.
       These displayable manuals can be read with the BookManager
(TM) READ family of licensed programs.  With BookManager READ,
customers can display, read and search the books.
       Customers may make verbatim copies of IBM soft copy
documentation distributed with IBM products for use within their
enterprise on as many systems as needed.  When printed, the resulting
hard copies follow the same rules as applicable to the hard copy
version ordered from IBM.
       Subsequent updates (technical newsletters or revisions between
releases) to the publications shipped with the product will be
distributed to the user at release level of record for as long as a
license for this software remains in effect.  A separate publication
order or subscription is not needed.
       The CD-ROM disc is accessed from a CD-ROM drive attached to
the user's personal computer.  The IBM BookManager READ licensed
program provides the function for accessing the publications.
BookManager READ is a prerequisite for use with the AS/400 Softcopy
Library.  The AS/400 Softcopy Library will give users fast and easy
access to product information.  AS/400 Softcopy Library is available
in U.S. English only.
       For specific details relating to IBM BookManager READ/DOS
Version 1.2 and IBM SAA BookManager READ/2 Version 1.2.1 licensed
programs and prerequisite hardware, refer to Programming
Announcements 290-375, dated July 3, 1990, and 290-754, dated
December 4, 1990.  The AS/400 Softcopy Library can also be read by
the BookManager READ/VM licensed program if the book files are
resident on a VM system.

ONE-TIME CHARGE:  Customers who pay a one-time charge for a licensed
program receive enhancements and future releases, if any, at no
additional charge.  Significant new function may be offered as an
optional feature and charged for separately.  If a replacement
program is announced and the customer elects to license the
replacement program for a one-time charge and replace the prior
program, an upgrade charge may apply.
VARIABLE CHARGES:  The applicable processor-based one-time charge
will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the
licensed program is licensed for use.
       For upgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a
higher group, the upgrade charge will be the difference in the then
current charges between the two groups.
       For downgrades of one-time charge licenses to a machine in a
lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of one-time
charges paid.
PROGRAM UPGRADE CHARGE:  Program upgrade charges will apply for
upgrades from AS/400 Operating System/400 (5728-SS1) Version 1 to
Operating System/400 Version 2 (5738-SS1) when the new version
replaces a prior version that was obtained for a one-time charge.
The prior version must be discontinued upon installation of the new
version.  If the prior version is not discontinued, the full one-time
charge applies to the new version.
