I would like to hear from anyone who has used the new electronic download f=

or the R17 install files. Was it worth the trouble, or would ordering a ta=

pe be easier?

Re: R17 electronic download
"Hi Kay,

I used this method for 16 SP7 including Beta testing the DISK installation
process and the GA on 2 different systems. I also used it for a number of
pre GA and R17 GA installs and it works great once you get over dealing with
the USS pieces. The USS stuff was straightforward if you use Unix or Linux
but may be a bit of a learning curve otherwise. My understanding is that
most CA mainframe software will be distributed this way now so it is a good
time to get used to using this installation process.

I found the install quite straightforward and a big time saver in the end.
