Try the following search on the web:
"testcase" "cumulative" "PTF" "ftp"

Probably yield a link with text like [my browser is acting up today...]:
"ftp://testcase.boulder.ibm.com/fromibm/os400... For V5R4"

For example:

Subfunctional Area: Save/Restore
Sub-Subfunctional Area: PTFs
OS/400 Release: V5R4M0; V5R4M5; V6R1M0; V6R1M1; V7R1M0
Product: OS/400 PTF MANAGEMNT (5722SS1PZ)
I5/OS (5761SS1PZ)
Product Release: N/A
Document Title
Installation / Cumulative Package ISOs

Document Description
During the weekend of April 14 and 15, the Fix Central Web site will not be available. For customers that must have the latest Cumulative, DataBase, or Hiper group PTF packages, there will be a temporary FTP site available for you to access so that you can download the images containing those PTFs. The temporary FTP site is available at the following URL:



For V7R1:

Once these images are on your PC, you can burn each image to a CD/DVD as a single image, one image per CD/DVD. You can then use this media for your installation process.
