You don't need a weather man
to know which way the wind blows...
Here are our experiences converting from
two 3725s to one 3745.
Please remember that problems I report here could most likely be from
mistakes I made and not from product flaws.
Channel Adapter connection to LPAR1, LPAR2, LPAR5
One 3745 (only two channel adapters)
Channel Adapter connection to LPAR1 (Byte - EP)
Channel Adapter connection to LPAR2 (Block)
CTC connections from LPAR1 and LPAR2 to LPAR5
We could completely get off FEP (Front End Processors) if we didn't
have the legacy EP lines!
Hired contractor to assist VTAM sysprog with conversion
Added Byte channel to LPAR1
Production on the '45.
