Hi Chick, 

You are correct. Additionally, I will mention that if anyone will be
upgrading to V5R3 (SSA Global has announced support for this operating
system versions on the OnePoint Support website) you will need to view
Informational APAR II13889 on the IBM support website for the list of
required PTFs and BMRs. 

Thanks,

Genyphyr Novak
