Frankly I don't think that anything as part of PASE itself requires it to
be there, however if you have any software that does chroot("/QOpenSys")
it's handy since then you can still reference /QOpenSys paths from within
the chroot. I have no idea what software does this, but I'm fairly certain
that nothing within PASE (SS1 option 33) needs it. YMMV.

Don't delete it! I don't recall why it is there; but it serves a
purpose.
Maybe Kevin Adler can comment.

Over the weekend I applied the latest CUM for V7R3. I was hoping
Node6
would be there, but it wasn't.

Anyhow, I found something else interesting while looking around. I
am
not
sure how this happened:

bash-4.2$ cd /QOpenSys
bash-4.2$ ls
IBM QOpenSys bin etc lib64 sbin var
QIBM QSR download lib opt usr
bash-4.2$

Both QOpenSys directories have the exact same creation date.
3/16/2016.
The subdirectory has a change date of 3/16/2016 as well.
Unfortunatley
it
has a last access date of today since I was like "Wha? Why is this
there"
and went in to see what is there.

It seems to be a copy of the /QOpenSys directory.
