Back in the days of physical media you used to see a revision letter on the I_BASE disc like the P letter shown at
https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/ibm-i-resaves-information-ibm-i-73
If you look carefully at that list you can see there was a PTF mentioned which came out between where you are now and what is currently available which could cause upgrade havoc. Another reason why people recommend installing a resave if you are way behind on PTF's.

Some people call this "slipping the lic" or "slip install".

If you've ever gotten a "link loader failure" when putting on a shipload of PTF's you were down to doing this function.

If you do this you should put on the latest cume and groups right away also.

You can download these new resaves from ESS.
