Today is the big day, rather the big weekend of migrating all production to the new iSeries system.  You might not think it, but the best way to move all the software from the old system to the new system is by backing everything up to tape and then restoring the data from tape on the new system.  Right now, the backup is running on the main production system – a mere 5 and a half or 6 hours to do that backup.  The long part is going to the be the actual restore.  If I’m REALLY lucky, it might take 24 hours or so of pure waiting to get everything done.  If things take longer, it could be 40 hours…hopefully no more than that.

I’ve been working on this project pretty hard for the last number of months.  I’m sure it will be a success and it will certainly be nice to finish this off.
