I have an AS400 S20(V4R3M0) that lost 2 disk drives last week and my SAVSYS tape has a media error. Can I reload the SAVSYS from an AS400 720(V4R5M0) to the S20? I don't have software subscription on either machine.

What configuration were the disks in ? Can you dump the tape to HD on the 270 ? – JJ01 Aug 3 '09 at 2:23

You will not be able to do a sysrestore due to the system license keys being different. Your Processor class may also be different which would also result in a license error.
