Question:

We recently upgraded our development AS/400 to V5R1 while leaving our production AS/400 at V4R5. We now have a problem on the production AS/400 (V4R5) where we cannot use or display LANSA-generated save files that are created on the development AS/400 (V5R1).

We can create other save files on the development AS/400 and send them over to the production AS400 and display/use them just fine but any save files that LANSA creates are not usable.

Answer:

You will need to change the value a position 631-638 of the DC@07 data area (Extended Data Information Area). This will set the target OS release so that when you export, LANSA creates savf for that release. Further discussion on some System Data Areas can be found in the iSeries User Guide, Appendix B on the LANSA Encyclopedia CD-ROM.
