Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The quick answer is no.
Note that upgrading the V5R3 or even V5R4 can be done without a glitch except that after 70 days you’re system will become unusable or very very slow since you would have not entered the proper license keys.

You will need license keys for every Licensed Program Product that is upgraded, and if they are IBM LPPs, then IBM supplies the license keys.
