Just downloading and applying the Cumulative Fix, Hiper, and DB groups
will NOT get you TR5. You have to download and apply that group as
well. It is SF99707.
As a matter of course I always download and apply any/all of the group
fixes that apply to my system. A minimum list might look like:
SF99710 CUMULATIVE PTF PACKAGE C2279710
SF99709 GROUP HIPER
SF99708 GROUP SECURITY
SF99707 TECHNOLOGY REFRESH
SF99705 HARDWARE AND RELATED PTFS
SF99701 DB2 FOR IBM I
SF99627 7.1 ELECTRONIC SERVICES GROUP PTF
SF99368 IBM HTTP SERVER FOR I
SF99367 TCP/IP PTF
SF99366 PRINT PTFS
SF99362 BACKUP RECOVERY SOLUTIONS
SF99145 PERFORMANCE TOOLS
Add WAS and Query groups as needed.

Into which IFS directory did you download the cume? I did the IBM service
packs a few days ago, and the TR5 is in the SF99707 PTF, not the cume.
I used the GO CMDIMGCLG menu, created 3 image catalogs named CUME, DB, and
FIXES and let the system create the directories for me. Then, I used the
FTP download part of ordering the service packs. The email I got back gave
me the instructions that I plugged into my FTP script program, and
submitted the download to batch. The next morning, the .bin files were
sitting in the appropriate directories. All I had to do was load the image
catalog I wanted to my virtual optical drive and then option 8 on the GO
PTF menu let me install the cume, followed by the DB fix, followed by the
groups and HIPERS. I rebooted the system after the cume, and again after
the DB and the other fixes.
