I am concerned; I close to buy a Power 9 (IBM SYSTEM) to replace our AS400 (ISERIES).
This sales is through a business partner. We only need the equipment with the last OS and releases and also the last PTF for the that OS, we will transfer the information from the AS400 TO POWER 9.
My business partner says
This system will ship with the IBMi OS installed with the latest RS (re-spin this is a re-spin of the OS with PTF’s) level that is available at order time. This is not the latest PTF levels but it does have PTF’s already installed on the OS. The system will also ship with the latest RS level of the Program Products. If SFNH(ME) wants to install the latest level PTF’s this also would be SFNH's(ME) responsibility, but the OS will come with some already installed.
Is this true? the equipment doesn't comes with the last PTF? so I have to pay to somebody else to apply the rest PTF's? and what about the OS release now is 7.3 have to come with that right?
Please if somebody knows about this could you please guide?
Thank you for your help
