Upgrade log V7R1 to V7R3

Hi Experts,

After upgrading an as/400 (i5, iSeries, etc) from V7R1 to V7R3, is there a log available where I can find info about what is added, replaced and removed ?

GO LICPGM, option 10.  Look for product 5770-JV1 option 11 and option 12.  

I don't think they are automatically removed - just no longer compatible.  Attempting to start them results in message:


Here is a good Technote on Java compatibility:

Did you look at GO LICPGM, option 50?

Hi B_H,

Yes I did, selected from 0:00 from the upgrade date, but no messages,
afaik, only operator-messages end errors are recorded here, but It was a probably a remove or deinstal that was done.

I like to figure out if Java 6 is automatically removed while upgrading to 7.3 or that it is an separate action (and how to proof)

Here is the basic post-upgrade procedure for an automated upgrade:


Install History log is just going to show you potential problems.  Also check GO LICPGM option 10 to see the current LICPGMs installed, and their status - including Java 6.

Hi Gary,

There is no LICPGM 50. info, there are no errors.
The only question is: Did the Upgrade removed Java 6, or was it a manual action before/while/after upgrading
or did the customers operator remove the feature?

The "IBM i Memo to Users Version 7.3" mentioned:
"Java SE 6 32 bit (5770-JV1 option 11) and Java SE 6 64 bit (5770-JV1 option 12) are not supported and will not function on IBM i 7.3."

But it's not clear if it is removed by the upgrade.

Hi Gary,

I saw already  that the version 6 is removed, but to end the YES/NO (or me/you) discussion, I like to know when is was removed.

OK - a few thoughts on where you might find a log of some sort.

DSPLOG to *PRINT and search for the LICPGM product number.  Seems a fair chance that DLTLICPGM might log an entry to the history log.  Might want to try it with something trivial, adding an option and removing it to see of there is a specific message logged.

STRSST and look at the Product Activity Log.
