Hello,

You will need to run the ANZOBJCVN command to get your answers. Note the the actually converstion happens last. The steps are:

Run the ANZOBJCVN command.
Collect information about objects on your system.
Review and understand the collected information.

    AFAIK, there is no direct conversion needed for any objects when going from V5R3 to V5R4. The minor conversions that happen will happen automatically. For "files", the conversion is actually for "directories". The conversion involves changing a directory's format from *TYPE1 to *TYPE2. There is no conversion of "files". You may run the CVTDIR command while still on V5R3 if you think you still have any *TYPE1 directories on your system. They should have been converted years ago to *TYPE2. When going to V6R1 from V5R3, the same directory conversion will happen if needed. There might also be some IFS names that can't convert when going to V6R1. I don't think anybody can tell you what those names are on your system. You must run ANZOBJCVN to locate any as noted in the answer above. The command finds one, you won't "convert" it -- you will simply rename it to remove characters in the name that shouldn't be there. Otherwise, AFAIK, there is no 'file conversion' for going to V6R1.
