The PTF's are cumulative so you can work with what is recent and not
worry about the older disks. I'm thinking that the additional 3 disks
are the HIPER and DB group PTF's (99529 and 99503).
If you want to do this once you might want to do an order and get some
even more current disks....I think O8085 is the current cum for V5R3.
This may not be a perfect list for this system but you may want to make
sure you are current with these groups...
SF99530 CUMULATIVE PTF PACKAGE C8085530
SF99529 GROUP HIPER
SF99528 GROUP SECURITY
SF99503 DB2 UDB FOR ISERIES
SF99346 PRINT GROUP PTF FOR V5R3M0
SF99314 TCP/IP GROUP PTF
SF99298 ELECTRONIC SERVICE AGENT
SF99185 530 BACKUP RECOVERY SOLUTIONS
SF99139 PERFORMANCE TOOLS
SF99099 IBM HTTP SERVER FOR ISERIES
You can also do a WRKPTFGRP on the system to see if it has any other

Subject: Really behind on PTF's
Our company just acquired another company and their AS/400. Very few
PTF's have been installed on the server as the company didn't have
anyone to take care of it. Their is a stack of discs that have been
mailed to them over the years (several from '05 and '07-'08).
The '08 set includes 6 discs in shrink wrap listed as OS/400
Cumulative PTFs V5R3M0 SF99530 - C7303530. There are also 3 built to
order discs with the company name on them. These 9 discs came
together in one envelope. Would this set from '08 included
everything that I need to get up to date (to that point) or will I
need to install the older discs first? If this doesn't include
everything, how would I go about ordering 3.5 years of updates?
